Gardeners’ Question Time comes to Oxford!

As part of its Gardens Season public talks and tours, Trinity College is excited to be hosting BBC Radio 4’s flagship institution, Gardeners’ Question Time! Join the audience for BBC Radio 4’s much-loved show, where the celebrated panel of experts will be tackling the questions put to them by local gardening enthusiasts in the historic surroundings of Trinity’s grounds. Gardeners’ Question Time attracts 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 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.

The recording is part of Trinity’s Gardens Season of talks and garden tours marking the return of spring and featuring a focus on gardening for wellbeing and sustainability. The talks and tours run between 24 April and 15 May and feature:
