Mr Plant Geek chats to Richard Jackson


We’re excited to be welcoming our new garden expert Michael Perry (aka Mr Plant Geek) to the QVC family! You’ll be seeing a lot more of him in our upcoming garden shows and also in his blogs he’ll be posting on here in the coming months, so make sure you look out for those.

Take it away Michael…

“Hi everyone!

I’ve had a great few weeks settling into my role as one of the gardening experts at QVC, and can’t wait for my shows later in April, and to get started on some exciting new offline projects. I hope you’ve enjoyed the shows so far, and have noticed some of the small enhancements we’ve made.

I certainly can’t forget Richard Jackson though. He has been such a support to me ever since my first show way back (probably almost 10 years ago!), and I’m still relying on him for lots of tips and advice.

For my first vlog with QVC, I wanted to show a different side to Richard, so I was given permission to interview him ‘uncut’, and he wasn’t given any script beforehand!! I think you’ll enjoy seeing what he likes off camera.

Watch this video – I’ll be digging into Richard’s past, finding out more about why he does what we does, which plants he first grew, what he thought of me when I first arrived, and why he often carries around a ‘banana handbag’!

We also discuss the Product of the Month for April, Flower Power Bio-active, AND I surprise him with a quick-fire question round right at the end!!

This is a must-see!”
