A BBC expert, Royal Horticultural Society judge and the head gardener at Fulham Palace are bringing their gardening know-how to Hammersmith for a lively evening of tips and tricks.

The borough’s very own gardeners’ question time is coming to Hammersmith next month – giving green-fingered residents chance to learn from some of gardening’s most knowledgeable pros.

Christine Walkden, resident expert of BBC Radio 4’s Gardeners’ Question Time, will be joined by RHS Britain in Bloom judge Geraldine King and Fulham Palace head gardener Lucy Hart during the event on 6 September.

The trio of horticultural experts will share their tips from decades of gardening – dispelling myths and offering advice to keep green spaces small and large looking at their best.

Organised by Hammersmith United Charities, the evening will take place at Sycamore House, in Sycamore Gardens, from 7pm to 9pm.

“Join us for a fun evening and get a chance to ask our expert panel your gardening questions, enjoy a drink and good food,” said Nora Laraki, events and projects administrator at Hammersmith United Charities, which celebrates its 400th anniversary this year.

“We are inviting fellow gardeners and interested neighbours in the area to come and ask their questions and although the event has a limited amount of tickets, we would like to reach people in the neighbourhood first.”

Tickets for the event cost £10 and are available to book in advance by calling 020 8741 4326 or by emailing:
