Introducing new garden expert Matthew Biggs!


Matt BiggsYou've probably heard him on the radio or seen him on the celebrity stage at BBC Gardener's World Live and other top flower shows. You may also have read his articles in the newspapers or gardening magazines. Now you can meet him on QVC!

I'm delighted that my good mate, Matthew Biggs, is joining the QVC gardening team. He's popping in this Saturday to say hello and from the following week will start to appear on air with his own show ' Gardening solutions with Matthew Biggs'.

Matt and I have worked together for years on TV and radio. He's one of the most enthusiastic people you'll ever meet – he just loves everything about gardening, as you'll know if you've heard him on BBC Radio 4's Gardeners' Question Time where he is one of the long standing and most
popular regular panellists.

A warm welcome, Matt, from all of us and I'm really looking forward to working with you again!

Back home in the garden, I'm planning to prune my roses this weekend and start a general tidy-up. The first crocuses have burst into bloom and the birds are getting chirpier. Spring is on the way!

Happy gardening

    Last year I used the Miracle Gro on my Lilies and sweet peas they were fantastic. This year I have bought some Rose bushes would the Miracle Gro be ok for them or should I use something different please. My garden has fairly good soil any help would be appreciated. It is the first time it has been planted with plants and flowers although it is an old property it was left go wild up until a year ago. Any help would be appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Two pots of my tree lillies have now got overcrouded in their pots so have just spent two days digging the bulbs out which I thought would take me about a morning but came across horrid white larva which were wedged against the bulbs themselves. I have a load of other pots of lillies and now am wondering whether all my pots will have these horrid things. Any idea of what they are and how to get rid of them, would there by something that I can just water the compost with or will I have to dig them out and throw the compost away?
