A BBC ra­dio in­sti­tu­tion which has in­spired gen­er­a­tions of gar­den en­thu­si­asts will be recorded in an East Kil­bride col­lege in just a few weeks’ time.

South La­nark­shire Col­lege is get­ting off to a great start in the new year with the news that Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time on Ra­dio 4, which at­tracts over two mil­lion lis­ten­ers a week, will pack up its trow­els and come to town.

Since its in­cep­tion in 1947 this long-stand­ing ra­dio pro­gramme has an­swered well over 40,000 ques­tions and the peo­ple of East Kil­bride could be ask­ing the next set when the show ar­rives at South La­nark­shire Col­lege on Tues­day, Jan­uary 22.

The cel­e­brated panel of gar­den­ing ex­perts will be tack­ling the ques­tions put to them by local gar­den­ing en­thu­si­asts, with Eric Rob­son in the chair.

Panel mem­bers never see the ques­tions be­fore the record­ing.

Their en­cy­clopaedic an­swers are com­pletely spon­ta­neous and re­veal their huge ex­pe­ri­ence and depth of gar­den­ing knowl­edge.

Be­ing on the GQT panel is not for the faint-hearted!

Tick­ets for the event will be on sale to the gen­eral pub­lic from Tues­day, Jan­uary 8 and are avail­able on a first-come, first-served ba­sis.

Tick­ets cost £4.50 and can be pur­chased by vis­it­ing South La­nark­shire Col­lege or log­ging on to slc.ac.uk/ news/gqt

The doors for Gar­den­ers’ Ques­tion Time will open at 5.30pm and record­ing will be­gin at 6.15pm.
