Hollywood star Jude Law and Dr Who actor David Tennant have joined a list of celebrities to support Garden Re-Leaf Day’s Gardening Quiz, by recording a round of questions.

The two stars join Skyfall’s ‘Miss Moneypenny’, actress Naomie Harris – currently on cinema screens as Winnie Mandela in Long Walk to Freedom – in presenting a section of the questions.

EastEnders cast members Danny Dyer (new Queen Vic landlord Mick Carter) and Patsy Palmer (market trader Bianca Butcher) have also lent their voices, in addition to a round recorded by impressionist Alistair McGowan – in the vocal style of celebrities John Humphrys, David Mitchell, Matt Baker, Dara Ó Briain and Stephen Fry.

The quiz – which includes general knowledge and gardening rounds – can be ordered by retailers, suppliers and other organisations participating in in the annual fund-raising Garden Re-Leaf Day, held on Friday March 14 and across the weekend.

Garden Re-Leaf Day’s founder and Hillview Garden Centre ceo Boyd Douglas-Davies said: “We’re enormously grateful that so many mainstream stars have supported this year’s Garden Re-Leaf Day quiz.

“It’s a simple way for retailers both to take part in Garden Re-Leaf, and attract scores of customers in-store at the start of the spring gardening season. You can make the event even more effective by running other sales promotions, refreshments and fund-raisers alongside.” The organiser’s pack costs £100 and is available by calling 01993 871456 or emailing pat@gca.org.uk.

In December it was announced that garden centres taking part in Garden Re-Leaf Day can also win a footfall-boosting visit to their garden centre from ITV’s green-fingered celebrity David Domoney, on Sunday March 16. David is offering a series of 30-minute expert talks on that date to the garden centre that wins Garden Re-Leaf Day’s ‘Gardening Date with David’ competition – which has a closing date of Friday February 7.

To register for Garden Re-Leaf Day and enter the ‘Gardening Date with David’ competition, email info@gardenreleaf.co.uk by February 7 with your garden centre details, also stating in 200 words or less, how you would make the most of David’s visit.
