The Big Allotment Challenge s2.

The Big Allotment Challenge is back, and this time nine individual gardeners go head to head in a competition hosted by Fern Britton. Over six weeks, the amateurs are put to the test in a series of challenges. In Grow, they must prove they have the horticultural know-how to produce challenging fruit and vegetables to impress former royal gardener Jim Buttress.

In episode one, the nine gardeners are challenged to grow and present five matching new potatoes, three perfect zinnia stems and in the surprise Make challenge it's floral baskets. Finally, for a place in the next round, they have to make two Sunday roast sauces. Who will impress the experts and be awarded the coveted best in shows and who will be first to leave the allotment?
