Visiting QVC presenters’ gardens


Richard Jackson Hello there! Which of the QVC presenters do you think is a dab hand in the garden? Well, in addition to Anthony's garden, I've also visited the gardens of Kathy Tayler and Simon Biagi.

Anthony has this wonderfully neat and pristine riverside garden, while Kathy's garden is very natural, and Simon has an exciting tropical courtyard and a very attractive country garden that looks out onto beautiful countryside.

Each of them had different problems with their gardens. Simon was struggling with rabbits and clay soil, so I showed him how to sort that out. Kathy wanted this natural look to her garden and we talked about ways she could achieve that.

I also know that Charlie is a very keen on gardening because his dad is a gardener. It's fantastic that so many QVC presenters enjoy gardening, and wherever possible the presenters take plants home to try out in their gardens so that they can talk from experience.

The only question mark I have about any of the presenters' gardening abilities is Julian's – I think he could kill anything just by looking at it!

    Sequinel based feed, and since then it seems to have DIED!!
    Is there anything I can do to try and revive it.

    Hi Richard. Greetings from Ireland. I purchased two wisteria two years ago and planted them both a few inches from the front wall of our house (approximately two feet apart), one each side of a pillar. My idea was to train one going to the left and the other to the right of the house. I was delighted when approximately six blooms appeared this year. My worry now, however, is that people have been telling me that the roots will undermine the house!! I have seen them on older houses but would like to know if I should move them, and if so how/when is best to do so? will they survive the move? I would also appreciate advice on pruning them.
    Many thanks in advance for your help.
