It has been another very busy month for me at QVC, we’ve had some blockbusting shows full of innovative new plants and products.
We are starting to come into the spring now, and have some interesting new shows to launch too, with themes such as “urban jungle” and “grow, eat, love”. Stay tuned for more information about those very soon!
Don’t forget you have the chance to WIN plants during every show, find out how here!
We also have Garden Day coming up on Sunday 17th March where we will be knee deep in gardening joy! Join us – we will have competitions, new plants, special offers and the usual good gardening advice!
Strawberry Gourmet Collection
Could you ever imagine a strawberry that you could grow in a hanging basket, or in the middle of a border, or as part of our patio pot display? Surely you’ll be used to growing your strawberries in the fruit garden on the allotment? Well, times are about to change.
The new gourmet collection from royal warrant holders, Suttons, offers us strawberries with pink, white and red flowers! They are also prolific fruiting plants, giving a good handful of fruit each day from June through to September. No more gluts!
Get them here.
Californian Lily Collection
Every garden needs some astonishing fragrance, and these lilies fit the bill! Brand-new hybrid lilies, bringing together the two worlds of longiflorum (trumpet) and Oriental lilies. The result is stout plants with big open trumpet blooms with a distinctive freesia-like scent.
Coming to QVC at the very end of the month, these Californian Lilies already have some great sales success behind them, selling more than 3000 packs last spring. The lilies are hardy and will come back every year in the garden, or patio pots. Use them as screening, against walls or in the border! Majestic!
Lawn Magic with easy feeder kit
Richard Jackson continues to bring us some of the best professional grade products in the marketplace. Lawn Magic has the seal of approval from thousands of customers in the UK. And now it’s available in easy application form, as it comes with its own attachment for using on a hosepipe.
Lawn Magic will make your lawn much stronger and healthier, and in turn help it cope with drought and fight off diseases too. Works on all sizes of lawn, whether they’re in a sunny position or shady corner.

Daisy Flower Stakes
These giant solar daisy lights are a bit of fun for your garden or outdoor space. They are more than a metre tall and the flower head is 40 cm in diameter. They will add impact during the day, and an ethereal glow at night.
Easy to assemble and long lasting, they’re sure to be popular when we launch them this month.
Coming soon to QVC.

Luxform Lamppost with Planter
I am loving this lamp post kit, available in classic or contemporary styles, and including a planter at the base. It’s from Luxform, and has modern solar technology, with a 150 lumen output. It can really give a great ambience to the outdoor area.
Use it at the front of your home for a real feature, where it can also help you to feel more secure about the front of your property too.
The king of all petunias, these were bred in Japan many years ago and are one of the most recognisable brands of plants in the world.
Surfinia are super vigorous, with super long trails, bejewelled with flowers all through the summer. Get set to indulge in their flower power, wherever you decide to plant them.

Bernini Maiden Fountain
This new Bernini Fountain offers a really bespoke looking design. The stunning abstract form really offers a bespoke look to this design, and looks as if it would have a hefty pricetag. That’s not the case at all!
Cascading water gently trickles from the top of the ball, and there is also an inbuilt LED light which gives a glow to the whole piece. No leads, no water source, it couldn’t be easier!

Mr and Mrs Gnome Planters
Love them or hate them, gnomes still have a place in our gardens. Here is a fantastic innovation where you can plant up your gnome with your favourite flowers. Each kit includes a Mr and Mrs!
