Gardeners Question Time in Leeds!

On the 28th of October the BBC flagship horticultural show ‘Gardeners Question Time’ will be recorded at Leeds Beckett University (formerly Leeds Metropolitan University). The event is hosted by a university-supported project: Back to Front, which was formed to create ‘front gardens that look good and taste better’ by inspiring people to grow fruit and vegetables in deprived areas of Leeds. Leeds Beckett Landscape Architecture students played a major role in the early days of Back to Front, helping to design a manual for would-be growers which included creative hints and tips on cultivating small front gardens using innovative and fun ‘up-cycled’ materials. This year students will be designing demonstration gardens in Cross Green to help inspire members of the public. Gardeners of all persuasions are invited to come and meet the panel, and ask questions on any horticultural topic of their choosing. Eric Robson is in the chair and the team will be Bob Flowerdew, Christine Walkden and Matthew Wilson.
