Silver River Productions are keen to hear from talented amateur gardeners. They are looking for ‘kitchen gardeners’ who would like to participate in the second BBC2 series of The Big Allotment Challenge (series 1 is due to be broadcast soon). Successful applicants will need to love to use their produce as well as grow it – gardeners who can not only grow the perfect carrot but can also turn their green tomatoes into award winning chutney and their dahlias and sweet peas into magnificent bouquets.
Participants will be offered the opportunity to turn a virgin plot of land into a place of beauty, and to be filmed while doing it! The plot of land is near Reading in the south of England. Interested applicants will need to think in terms of committing 1 or 2 days a week between April and August to maintain the plot and allow for filming however all travel and accommodation would be covered by the production company.
