BBC Gardeners’ Question Time at the RAU 20 April
The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) in Cirencester was pleased to host an episode of BBC Gardeners’ Question Time on Thursday 20 April.
Members of the public joined the live audience and put their gardening questions to a panel of horticultural experts. The panel was made up of: Bob Flowerdew, organic gardener and television and radio presenter; Anne Swithinbank, horticulturist and freelance broadcaster and writer; and Chris Beardshaw, award-winning gardener well-known for his work on BBC Gardeners’ World.
The show covered general questions on gardening, including how to grow Hydrangeas, and saving a suffering hedge. One question was posed by a 90 year old lady from Derbyshire, whose family had brought her to be a part of her favourite radio programme.
Listen live at 3pm on Friday 28 April, or listen back on the BBC iPlayer after it’s broadcast.
The first episode of Gardeners’ Question Time, originally titled How Does Your Garden Grow?, was broadcast in the North and Northern Ireland Home Service of the BBC on 9 April 1947, inspired by the wartime Dig for Victory campaign. It’s still going strong 70 years later.
