Gardening update and a Lock & Lock offer


I hope all’s as well as can be expected with everyone.

This is just a quick blog having been off on a few days break from The Q. I managed to get some bits and pieces done around the house – not as much as I had hoped though, due to the poor weather. At least we managed to get a few shrubs planted out and potted up a few plants and flowers from Richard Jackson’s recent shows.

RJ Compost

I used Richard’s new and improved Premium Advanced Formula Multi Purpose Compost for the first time and I have to say it was a dream to work with! I’m sure they’ll thrive with it’s added Root Booster humates for stronger roots, enriching Flower Power nutrients and water retaining wetting agent. The Thomson & Morgan Hellebores I received last week have visibly grown already! Unfortunately these have now sold out, but there’s plenty of other great varieties available from Thompson & Morgan, I’ll be reporting back with my growing results through the season.

In between rain showers I managed to get in a spot of dog walking and took my camera along to literally catch this mallard doing a bit of water skiing!


Now, I like a bargain as much as the next person and I love to share them when I get the chance – tonight at midnight is such a chance!

Simon Brown and I will be officially launching a stupendous Today’s Special Value  at midnight, it is however available to buy right now, our best priced Lock & Lock offer EVER! Time to recycle your old mismatched containers? Just saying : )

20 of the brilliant Lock & Lock storage containers at an amazing price – seriously great value!

Lock & Lock provide smart solutions for everyday, once you’ve used a Lock & Lock container there will be no turning back. Thanks to the four-way click lock each box is air tight and waterproof keeping contents fresh for longer. The containers are all microwave, dishwasher and freezer suitable. Whether you want to keep a salad fresh or want to bring your leftovers to work Lock & Lock has the right container for any occasion.

Simon is well known as an expert kitchen guest but these brilliant water tight containers are certainly not just for the kitchen. As I’ve mentioned above, they’re brilliant for food storage etc but they are also great for storing dog biscuits as you can see


Also for DIY’ers and crafters for keeping things dry or moist etc. fishermen, model makers, electricians – the list is endless and so are the uses for Lock & Lock. The set contains four each of the five sizes plus a choice of Red, Blue, Purple, Green or Clear lids !

If 20 is too many for you – share them with friends or loved ones !

I expect that the phone lines will be frantically busy, so whether you are new to The Q or not it might be worthwhile having your computer or mobile device handy and going to or “tapping” the QVC app available for both Apple and Android portable devices.

So more news and photos soon

Until next time stay air tight and organised !
