BBC Radio 4's Gardeners' Question Time arrives on the shores of Strangford Lough.

BBC Radio 4's Gardeners' Question Time arrives on the shores of Strangford Lough as they hold their annual Summer Garden Party at Mount Stewart.

The GQT Summer Garden Party is Radio 4's biggest annual event – including huge recordings of the BBC's flagship gardening radio programme. Visitors will get the chance to meet the GQT panellists, put their questions to them in person, and participate in demonstrations and horticultural happenings across the gardens.

In addition to talks, demos and recordings with the Gardeners' Question Time team, some of the highlights will include recordings of BBC Ulster’s Gardeners' Corner, talks from RHS Chelsea gold winners Diarmuid Gavin and Ian Price, cookery demos from Belfast's The Merchant and The Great Room, walking tours, plant sales and fun for all the family. Gurus of gardening including Matthew Wilson, Christine Walkden, Bob Flowerdew, Bunny Guinness, James Wong, Pippa Greenwood, Matt Biggs, and GQT chairmen Eric Robson and Peter Gibbs will be in attendance.
