GQT on location

Now’s your chance to put your gardening questions to the top experts on the world’s longest-running gardening programme.

BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time has been answering the queries of gardeners since 1947, and has been a staple of the schedule on BBC Radio 4 ever since then.

Normally the programme is recorded with audiences on location all over the UK. But unfortunately due to the ever changing situation with Covid-19 we have had to cancel the audience recordings of the show. So the GQT team will be working through questions submitted via email and social media.

You can get in touch via email: or on Twitter @BBCGQT

Your question may be answered on the programme in the coming weeks.


Do we have to be a gardening club?

Not at all. GQT visits all sorts of groups. We have recorded programmes in a prison, on a London Underground Station, in zoos, schools and even at a naturist club. Not all gardeners belong to a gardening club and we'll go wherever there are keen gardeners.
