Are you the complete Kitchen Gardener?

Is your garden, allotment or window box your pride and joy?

Do you grow your own fruit, veg & flowers and do you know what to do with them?

A TV production company is looking for talented amateur kitchen gardeners who have the skills and the dedication to compete in BBC2's 'Big Allotment Challenge'.

Someone 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.

The programme is offering around 8 talented kitchen gardeners the chance to create and manage a magnificent allotment over the course of 6 months, located in a beautiful walled garden.

The TV programme will follow your journey from the moment you plant the seeds to pulling the ripe produce from the ground. You must be able to grow fruit, veg and cut flowers and be able to make preserves with the produce you grow. The show will be filmed in Oxfordshire and is to be hosted by Fern Britain.

The company is offering successful applicants the chance to turn a plot of land into a patch of beauty so if you have the skills to compete and are interested in featuring in our series, please contact grow@silverriver.tv or call 0207 907 3401 for an application form, or download it from this page (see below photographs).

The deadline for applications is 12pm on the 13th of March 2014.
