BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time are once again holding their annual summer garden party at the fabulous Ness Botanic Gardens (Wirral). These gardens are part of the University of Liverpool, which is where we both studied. The party takes place on Saturday 16th September, from 10am-6pm, in the gardens. We’ll be hosted for the day in a marquee in the gardens, along with other artisan food and crafts.
It’s a special occasion this year as the show celebrates it’s 70th anniversary of the first broadcast of the show in 1947. Two live recordings of the show will take place on the day, with seats available on a first come first served basis. Although we’ve seen a TV recording in a studio, watching an outdoor filming will be a new experience – here’s hoping the weather holds!
Alongside the recordings, you will be able to find over 50 exhibitors hosted in a Plant & Food Fair marquee, featuring nurseries, gardening societies, wildlife organisations and local food producers, including us! There will also be gardening and food demos, Q&A sessions with the BBC experts, and guided walks and talks through the gardens.
