The BBC is looking for talented amateur kitchen gardeners who have the skills and the dedication to compete in BBC2’s The Big Allotment Challenge.

It is aimed at someone who can cultivate the perfect carrot and make their green tomatoes into award winning chutney, whether they are an allotmenteer, a city-living window box grower, or a gardening enthusiast.

Successful applicants will get the chance to turn a plot of land in a beautiful walled garden into a patch of beauty.

If you have the skills to compete and are interested in featuring in the series, contact or call 0207 907 3401 for an application form.

The deadline for applications is midnight on March 13. Auditions will take place in London this month.
