The celebrated panel of gardening experts from Radio 4′s Gardeners Question Time will broadcast from Chester Zoo on July 14th.

The panel will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardening enthusiasts, with Eric Robson in the chair.

Gardeners’ Question Time is a Radio 4 institution, attracting over 2 million listeners a week. Recorded in a different location each week, this long-standing radio programme has answered well over 30,000 questions since its inception in 1947.

The panel members have been guests of a diverse range of gardening clubs and other organisations; including a telecommunications call centre and the London Transport Museum.

The panel never see the questions before the recording. Their encyclopaedic, seemingly effortless answers are completely spontaneous and reveal their huge experience and depth of gardening knowledge. Being on the GQT panel is not for the faint hearted!
