Radio Ulster Gardeners' Corner comes to Toome

BBC Radio Ulster’s Gardeners’ Corner is going on the road to TIDAL in Toome with Lough Neagh Partnership on Tuesday 15 October and you are invited to attend.

Presenter of the popular gardening show, David Maxwell, will host the special recording of the programme and, speaking ahead of the event, Gerry Darby, Strategic Manager at Lough Neagh Partnership, said: “Following the successful launch of the community allotment at Toome, we are privileged to be welcoming BBC Radio Ulster’s Gardeners’ Corner to Toome with TIDAL for the first time. We are looking forward to the lively chat about all things gardening between David, his experts and the guests attending this free event.”
David Maxwell, BBC Radio Ulster’s Gardeners’ Corner Presenter, said: “I’m really looking forward to this roadshow. Going on the road into local communities is always a lot of fun and it’s a chance for Gardeners’ Corner listeners to meet some of the experts face to face. Whether or not you consider yourself greenfingered, you’ll be guaranteed a very warm welcome and top notch gardening advice.” 
Una Johnston of TIDAL said: “The introduction of the allotment has brought so much joy to so many people, from those who have been encouraged to get involved in planting and growing flowers, plants and produce and to those who have bought plants grown and food produced on the allotment to enjoy at home. Some have told us that they have experienced a real benefit to their mental health and we are looking forward to showcasing what we’ve achieved with the allotment when we welcome BBC Radio Ulster Gardeners’ Corner roadshow to TIDAL on 15 October.”
