Introducing my new Container Magic plant food!


Flower Power and Container Magic TSVA couple of years ago at a QVC gardening event, I asked how many containers everyone had in their garden? A surprising number of people had over 40 pots, tubs and baskets while a few had over one hundred! Caring for them, which was a labour of love, took hours a week. During this conversation, a lot of customers asked if I could introduce a product that made container gardening easier.

This Sunday (19th Feb), I launch that product! It's called Container Magic and, as far as I'm aware, there's nothing quite like it in the world!

Container Magic helps you grow better plants with less effort. It's a three-in-one product containing water-retaining granules to make watering much easier, controlled-release booster food to help establish the young plants faster and a blend of 18 naturally occurring mycorrhizal fungi that help the plants absorb more nutrients and water through their roots.

The results in my trials were outstanding. Just look at the picture of one begonia plant, treated with one application of Container Magic and then fed regularly all After using Container Magicseason with Flower Power. The plant started off a few inches high; yet when it was photographed in September it had grown 30" high and 40" across!

If you'd like to be one of the very first in the world to try Container Magic then don't miss Sunday's Today's Special Value. Not only do you get a 2kg tub of Flower Power (at the best value price ever!), but you also get four sachets of Container Magic, each sufficient to treat a 35cm or 14" pot or basket.

I'm really proud of Container Magic and I hope it will help everyone grow better patio plants with less effort.

Happy gardening,

    Looking forward to this TSV. Have a large garden and need all the help I can get! I spend a lot of money on plants and Container Magic will help them to flourish. I have Richard’s Flower power and love it and hope this New Container Magic will be even better and hope I can use it on my fruit trees and veggie garden as well!

    Hi Richard
    As we are about to have a hose pipe ban would it be ok to use my Flower Power in water I save from washing up as even my water butt is low at the moment and I can’t deprive my plants of their favourite food…IT’S MAGIC

    dear richard
    i have just purchased your tub of flower power for the very first time. this year, i have gone over the top, and purchased many plants. my garden is full, bedding plants, you name it, i have put it in my garden this year. i have used flower power for the first time last week on all my plants, and already, i have stareted to notice a difference. my only problem is the hose pipe ban coming into force on april 5th. what will i do. i am wondering, if it would be possible to use water from my washing machine, water from my washing up, and from my bath. can i do this without having any bad effects on the plants that i have purchased, and also, if i can use this water, can i also put my flower power into the water and mix it. please help me as i donot want to lose the great plants that i have purchased this year. my arthritis means that i cannot get out, so the garden is the only place i can escape, and it is my pride and joy, and i will send you some photos this year

    Hello Richard, I have been watching QVC for about a year now, and have bought various items during that time. I would like to tell you how great I have found your Flower Power I bought it last summer and have been using it ever since, this year my flower bed is looking stunning, the hostas I planted last year are enormous and my garden could be mistaken for an exotic jungle with the size of the hostas and ferns etc. Many thanks for making the Flower Power!

    Hi Richard.
    I Have an acer in a container on my patio. Which, if any, of your feeds can I use for it please? It was bought for me by my family and is very precious to me, so I’m desperate not to harm it but to help it flourish!
    Many thanks,
    Lesley B.

    Hi Richard, I purchased a tub of your amazing flower power last year, I was amazed with the wonderful. Results, I had lots of hanging baskets up in late spring and all through the summer and well into autumn, ive never been able to keep a same basket full of masive, big, bright, wonderful flowers well over 3, 4 months without them looking scruffy and need replacing, thank you for your pot of magic Richard,
    Any way Richard this is my reason for messaging you, I left my tub of flower power outside in all weathers, when I come to use it the other day, it was over half full of water from raining all winter, the lid cracked with the cold weather, Will I stil. Be able to use it? Can I let it dry out then use it?, or has the magic seperated from the ingredients in the tub and it’ll be no good to use?,
    I will be waiting for your answer and hopeing its ok to use, if not then ill get straight on the phone to order another tub, thank you Richard.
