Green-fingered townspeople are being encouraged to put themselves forward for a new TV show which explores Britain’s beautiful private gardens.
TV production company Outline Productions, which makes BBC2’s The Great British Garden Revival, is currently working on a brand new Sky1 series called How Does Your Garden Grow?
The firm is looking for people from the Bury St Edmunds area to apply and go head-to-head in a competition with other garden lovers to compare and critique who has the best garden, gardening skills and hospitality in town.
Melanie Lesser, co-ordinator of the town’s Bury in Bloom group, is encouraging people to get involved.
“It’s a way to encourage gardening and for communities to help each other really,” she said. “Well Street is a lovely example where people help older folk who cannot do as much gardening.”
She said the show was also a way to showcase the green-fingered efforts in the town.
“We have a lot of beautiful gardens and they are hidden,” she said.
Those interested in getting involved with the show should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 424 7645.
