Silver River Productions, a TV company based in London are currently in production for a BBC2 primetime gardening show ‘The Big Allotment Challenge’. The series follows a handful of talented amateur kitchen gardeners as they transform a plot of earth into a patch of beauty and reveal all the wonderful possibilities that can be unlocked from allotment growing. Kitchen gardening and growing your own produce is an amazing way to live and this series celebrates that.

They are looking for contestants to feature in the series, those who have the skill and dedication and who could dig their way to victory and be crowned the winner of The Big Allotment Challenge. People who can cultivate the perfect carrot, make their green tomatoes into award winning chutney and turn their dahlias and sweet peas into floral arrangements fit for a Queen.

So whether you’re an allotment holder, a city living window box grower or a gardening enthusiast, they want to hear from you!

It couldn’t be easier to apply, all you need to do is email for an application form.

Good luck!

  1. I went for an interview last year but unfortunately didn’t get through. I think it’s because I was from up north where as a lot of the people who had come to be interviewed from down south. It was a great experience though :) we got picked from thousands down to 30 applicants :) can’t wait for the show to start x x


  2. I’m so upset reading this just now and learning this contest and your blog is from overseas and not in the US!
    Always enjoy reading it though.


  3. Perfection is quite a high requirement. Counts me out I’m afraid. I’ll look forward to watching, I must have missed the first series.


  4. Those of us outside the uk are all nursing our disappointment now but then again will perfection on the plot appeal as much as normal setback and comedy. That’s usually what I’m best at!
