The winner of our presenter lily challenge is…


Dale Franklin with his liliesSince mid-May our presenters have had to face quite the challenge – a lily challenge in fact! We gave each of our presenters Thompson & Morgan lilies to tend to and grow.

The prize? For the winning presenter to name the new lily variety, to later be sold here at QVC!

After a poor start, with a wet May and June, eventually the buds started blooming, and boy did they!

Ultimately, beating out some stiff competition (check out the pictures below), our winner was…Dale Franklin (pictured with his lilies, left), who decided to call the lilies 'Ruby Dale'.

Congratulations Dale! Check out how Catherine Huntley, Julia Roberts, Craig Rowe, Simon Biagi, Charlie Brook and Debbie Flint got on below!
