Record numbers turned out for the BBC Radio 4 Gardeners’ Question Time Summer Garden Party held at Ness Botanic Gardens last weekend.
For the second year running, visitors were able to listen to BBC Radio 4 gardening experts including Eric Robson, Peter Gibbs, Bob Flowerdew , Pippa Greenwood, Toby Buckland, Bunny Guinness, Matthew Wilson, Matthew Biggs, Anne Swithinbank, Alison Pringle and James Wong, who offered advice on all sorts of horticultural issues.
Staff from Ness Gardens were also on hand to demonstrate budding, grafting and propagation techniques, and a separate food stage hosted cookery demonstrations.
Kevin Reid, Director at the gardens, said: “We were again overwhelmed with the positive comments and were delighted to work with the BBC team again.”
