There were lots of great stands and I was delighted when our friends from the Nether Wallop Trading Company won the 'Best stand in show' award from the Garden Media Guild.
There were some fabulous new plants to discover, including a compact, mass-flowering white paniculata hybrid hydrangea 'Bombshell' and Rudbeckia 'Dublin' whose large orange/yellow daisy-like flowers are similar to those produced by annual rudbeckias but this new plant is a fully hardy perennial. I'm certainly going to trial both this summer.
On Thursday 10th February we're officially launching the garden season on QVC. And we'll be kicking off with a great Today's Special Value offer! It's Flower Power, but in a new super soluble form so that, for the first time ever, it can also be used in hose-end feeders as well as watering cans.
We've put together a limited edition kit – a big tub of Flower Power (our best ever value!) and, as a complete bonus, a Flower Power hose-end feeder too! The brilliant thing about the hose-end feeder is that you can feed your garden so much faster.
Last summer, using watering cans, it took me 25 minutes to feed my garden plants and containers with Flower Power. Using the hose-end feeder, it took just over six minutes! The kit is incredible value, so make sure you discover more on Thursday!
