Via Jane Hunt:
My name’s Ailsa, and I work at the TV company Crackit.
We’re embarking on a brand new gardening competition show for Channel 5, filming this summer, and we’re looking for talented amateur gardeners from across the country to take part.
We were hoping the Hardy Plant Society might be able to help us get the word out by circulating some information about the show, and details about how to apply. You can find this information below.
I understand you may want to ask further questions about the show – I’m happy to answer these! Please feel free to get in touch via email or phone. My office number is below, and my mobile is 07935 724 211.
TV Gardening Competition – Channel 5
TV production company Crackit is looking for pairs of brilliant, enthusiastic, amateur gardeners with serious green-fingered talent to take part in a brand-new gardening competition for Channel 5. If you’re up for an exciting challenge or would like to nominate two people who would be, we want to hear from you!
We’re searching for pairs of gifted gardeners from across the UK who are passionate about all things horticultural – and are willing to showcase their amazing gardening skills.
Both of you must have already created at least one fantastic garden. It could be your own back garden, a friend or relative’s plot, or a community space – as long as you are not a professional gardener.
You should have a genuine relationship with one another – whether that’s because you are partners, siblings, friends, colleagues or otherwise.
Both of you must be available to film on the weekends between 25th and 26th August and the 29th and 30th September.
How to apply:
If you think you fit the bill (or know someone who does) please get in touch via the email address below – ideally with good quality photos of your garden!
