Despite a blanket of snow covering the village where I live, there's a warm and happy glow at the Jackson household. That's because I'm really excited that we're launching the garden season on QVC this Saturday and to kick it off, we've an amazing TSV!
We're offering the fantastic trailing begonia in apricot shades which I reckon is the finest, easy-grow, colour-packed plant that anyone can grow in their hanging baskets (even Julian could grow it, it's that easy!)
We've sold young plants before and they've been deservedly very popular but this time we're selling one-year-old tubers which will grow and flower extra fast this summer.
To give them a kick start, I like to gently push the tubers into pots of damp compost, cover with cling film and put them in an airing cupboard. I check them daily and once I see the first shoots, remove the cling film and place the plants on to a window sill to grow on.
If the TSV isn't exciting enough, I'm also launching my brand-new book of gardening tips exclusively on QVC. It's on Advanced Order and I've promised to personally sign every book ordered. So it's going to be quite a weekend!
I do hope you can join me this Saturday,
