ONE OF the UK’s most popular gardening programmes, BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time, is to be broadcast from The Edible Garden Show & Good Life Live – and members of the public can apply for free tickets to be in the audience at this special recording.

Gardeners’ Question Time (GQT) will be recorded on the Saturday (March 12) of The Edible Garden Show which is being staged at the NAEC, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, from March 11 to 13.

During the programme members of the audience will have the chance to pose their gardening queries to a panel of experts who will include TV botanist James Wong, broadcaster Pippa Greenwood and outspoken Lancastrian Christine Walkden.

James, a presenter for BBC’s Countryfile, and prolific author Pippa will also be appearing in The Edible Garden Show’s Experts’ Theatre on all three show days giving specialist talks and advice to visitors.

The BBC One Show’s resident gardening expert Christine will be on hand on the Sunday.

People attending the Gardener’s Question Time do not need to have a ticket to The Edible Garden Show, but will need one if they want to visit the show itself.

There are 200 GQT tickets to give away for Saturday, March 12 with the broadcast due to be recorded in a Stoneleigh Park conference room at 12.15pm.

The audience will be selected at random on March 7 and those selected will be notified via an email. The audience can bring along photos or small samples to accompany their questions if they wish to.
