Bigger and better than ever

Better Homes and Gardens returns with brand new season

Australia’s number one lifestyle program Better Homes and Gardens returns for its 29th season starting 7.00pm Friday, 3 February on Channel 7 and 7plus.

Host Johanna Griggs and the Better Homes and Gardens team have been scouring the nation for bigger, better and bolder ideas. In 2023 they will scour the country, from Perth and Hobart, to find irresistible recipes, ingenious gardening tips, innovative designs and inspiration to create a little piece of paradise in your own home.

On what to expect, Johanna said: “After the past few years, people are loving getting their hands dirty and want to learn more about DIY. They want to know how to transform their homes for less, including cosmetic room makeovers, storage solutions and clever craft projects.

"Australians have let us know they are craving more details of projects that they can attempt themselves. They want quick fixes, smart ideas and a great end product. Better Homes and Gardens has it all.”

Must-see segments in the 2023 season return include:

• Johanna, Graham and Karen making delicious summer prawn, corn and basil lettuce cups

• Fast Ed and Pete whipping up some smokey pork baguettes, perfect for a summer picnic or barbecue

• Charlie, Adam and Melissa transforming a boring backyard into a multipurpose space the whole family will love

• Juliet sharing simple ways to add style and personality to your place without losing the lease

• Graham exploring Corinda, a stunning house and garden overlooking Hobart’s historic waterfront

• Dr Harry catching up with the Seagull Squad: an elite group of canines on patrol to save diners from seagulls

• Johanna and Pete visiting an amazing architect-designed home in Mt Tambourine that takes indoor/outdoor living to a whole new level

The new season of Better Homes and Gardens airs each Friday at 7.00pm featuring host Johanna Griggs, Adam Dovile (DIY), Charlie Albone (landscaping), Dr Harry Cooper (vet), Graham Ross (gardening), Juliet Love (decorating and design), “Fast Ed” Halmagyi (chef), Karen Martini (chef), Melissa King (gardening), Pete Colquhoun (architect) and James Tobin (tech and motoring).
