Tony Murrell & Ness

Tony Murrell & Ness Baxter


Tony Murrell is a household name in NZ as the host of The Home and Garden Show on Radio Live and one of the hosts of the TV ONE show Kiwi Living. He has the loveliest radio voice and you would think he had been in the media for his whole life.

In this interview I discover that Tony studied to be Chef in London – his claim to fame at this point being that he attended the same culinary college as Jamie Oliver (though not at the same time!)

Tony shares his passion for life and his belief that you must live doing what you love. He is enigmatic and engaging and truly appreciates the connections people make through their food and sharing it with others.

He shares his determination to never say NO but to grab opportunities as they are presented and to approach mistakes with the attitude they can be the pathways to success.

Tony’s ‘real business’ is as a Garden Designer

“I’m passionate about gardens and garden design which is why I have been in the horticultural industry for most of my working career, almost 30 years. I throughly enjoy meeting and working with people designing and building beautiful outdoor environments.”

This is an episode full of lively conversation, life-skill suggestions, upping your brave and living your life as an adventure.

I am deeply honoured to bring you this episode with this well known media figure in NZ. 

You can tune into Tony’s Home & Garden show (Radio Live) on Saturdays and Sundays from 6-8am. Check out Tony’s book – Garden Designs to Enhance your Life and his website. Also, these Facebook pages for Home and Garden and Kiwi Living.
