Episode 4

Gardening challenge series with Fern Britton. At the halfway point, the six remaining gardeners must grow perfectly uniform tomatoes and present impressive sweet and savoury jams.

The fourth round of The Big Allotment Challenge hosted by Fern Britton continues the search to find Britain's best amateur gardener. It is the halfway point and just six gardeners remain.

In the grow challenge, Jim Buttress wants to see perfectly uniform tomatoes. Floral designer Jonathan Moseley asks the gardeners to grow rudbeckia and use them in a stacked flowerpot arrangement, the toughest challenge he has set to date. Finally, food author and preserves queen Thane Prince wants prize-winning sweet and savoury jams on her show bench.

Who will impress the experts and secure the best in shows, and who will leave the competition for good?
