GREEN-FINGERED growers made such an impression on BBC bosses that they put in a special request to hold the famous Gardeners’ Question Time in Milton Keynes, the Citizen can reveal.

The Radio 4 programme producers made an approach to Bletchley Garden Club and Windmill Hill Garden and Allotment Association.

“It’s a real honour,” said club spokesman Jan Taylor, who believes they heard of the club through its successful annual seed swap.

Filming of the show will be at Stantonbury Campus Theatre on February 11 at 6.30pm.

Tickets are limited to 200 and will be sold on a first come first served basis from Jan on 01908 644349.
