The programme typically comes from a village hall or other public venue somewhere in Britain, or occasionally further afield, such as in the Republic of Ireland or northern France. GQT often records at special locations throughout the UK including on a moving train, on top of Snowdon, from inside the Tower of London and in December 2016 from the state dining room at 10 Downing Street. There are also regular editions in which the panel answer questions sent in by post or email, known as postbag editions. These editions are recorded in a specially adapted potting shed at Sparsholt College near Sparsholt, Winchester; however, in recent years postbag programmes have been recorded at various gardens around the UK, including at Highgrove with HRH Prince Charles, Kew Gardens, RHS Wisley, Ness Botanic Gardens and East Ruston Old Vicarage. Each year the programme visits a botanic garden to stage its annual GQT Summer Garden Party. The event includes seminars and talks given by the GQT panel, a chance to receive first hand advice from a panelist inside the GQT Potting Shed plus two programme recordings. A highlight of the horticultural calendar, the event attracts a large audience of keen amateur gardeners. Most recently the Summer Garden Party has been hosted by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, National Botanic Garden of Wales and Ness Botanic Gardens. Since 2001, Gardeners' Question Time factsheets have been made available after each episode covering all questions and their given answers. The factsheets can be found by searching for a particular episode and scrolling down the page. In 2009, the programme launched a podcast edition and a Twitter account, the latter designed to be a place where listeners can share gardening ideas and tips and comment on the radio programme's topics and panelist answers. The programme regularly attracts an audience in excess of two million and has answered over 35,000 questions in its long run.
