Episode 3

Gardening challenge series with Fern Britton. The remaining seven pairs must present three uniform carrots, a gladioli specimen and a chutney to stay in the competition.

The third round of The Big Allotment Challenge hosted by Fern Britton continues the search for Britain's best growers. Seven pairs remain and it is time to pull up the carrots, pick the gladioli and get in a pickle over their chutneys.

Jim wants to see three uniform carrots and a flawless gladioli specimen presented on the show bench. Jonathan ups the ante with his surprise floral arrangement and tasks the allotmenteers to design and make a table arrangement using flowers from their patch. Queen of preserves Thane Prince is on the search for perfection as the teams battle it out to deliver an award-winning chutney and cordial to the show bench.

Who will be sent home and who will continue to dig their way to victory and be named the winners of The Big Allotment Challenge?
