We were contacted by BBC local radio, Coventry and Warwickshire, asking if they could come and talk to us live on the Saturday morning gardening show. A bit scary but we said yes so on February 1st Keith Wedgebury arrived with his microphone. We chatted for about 10 mins waiting for our allotted time, 11.30 pm. As it was a very windy day we started in the green house, moving outside towards the end of the interview.
Keith was very good at asking the right questions to get us talking and the whole thing lasted around 7 minutes.
Later in the day we listened to the programme, the Mollie Green show, on BBC sounds.
We realised there was much more we could have said but we did manage to slip in our National Garden Scheme (NGS) Open Garden on 6th and 7th June this year and also events at our local community Orchard (WOT2Grow) . We are heavily involved in this project and were able to advertise the annual Apple Day, October 10th 2020 and the Wassail January 16th 2021.
Quite an experience, we are now back to working in the garden, it has been even windier this week so we were lucky with the timing of the broadcast.
