Stay pest free and enjoy the Easter break!


I hope all’s well and you’re all looking forward to your Easter break?

We’ve had some wonderful weather recently and fingers crossed for more this weekend. Only I would decide to redecorate a room in this weather!

However, whilst out walking the dogs, I’ve been sensibly applying my Ultrasun Face SPF50+ protection, our Beauty Pick of the Month for April, and the warmer days have coaxed the adders out of hibernation – so I’ve been keeping a close eye on Toby and Ellie sniffing at ‘sticks’ with a zig-zag pattern!

This Easter Saturday at the Q – I’ll be busy launching a wonderful collection from my pal and QVC’s Gardening expert Mr Richard Jackson.

Richard has helped so many of us get the best out of our plants and flowers with his brilliant Flower Power plant food – currently this month’s Gardening Pick of the Month. Well, Easter Sunday’s Today’s Special Value (TSV) offer helps us to control many pests! Namely slugs, snails, ants and a wide range of plant pests such as whitefly, greenfly, lily beetle and spider mite.

What’s more impressive is that it’s all organic! The Slug Pellets, Ant Granules and Pest Control are all suitable to be used in organic gardens.

The collection comprises Slug & Snail Control advanced formula, and you get two new products! Ant Control Granules and Pest Control Concentrate  are both brand new, plus you get a new and improved precision Hand Sprayer – this can also be used with Richard’s other products such as Plant Invigorator.

Needless to say Richard has given us an ‘egg-cellent’ Easter value and I hope you can join us at midnight this Saturday.

Until next time stay pest-free with a ‘spring’ in your step…

    Hi Dale.
    Just wanted to say thank you for a great Pampered Pets Show last night and for your support.
    As always, I really enjoyed showing the benefits of Forthglade Foods to your viewers. It gives me a fantastic sense of pleasure and pride that we could be making really beneficial changes to the lives of dogs and their owners, and now after 4 shows I hope you feel that I’m starting to get the hang of it?

    I hope to see you again soon, and best wishes to Toby and Ellie!

    Hi Dale . You presented the new Panasonic fz82 with Mat Trim as qvc was part of the uk launch in March, I have just purchased one from Qvc as missed out on the Tsv as working what I was wondering as you seem to know about photography as you said that you go out and take photographs quite a
    Lot and I myself is just an amateur and what you thought yourself about the camera.

      Hi Catherine, I’m glad you bought that camera, as I was very impressed with Mat’s photos – I didn’t get a chance to use it myself but Mat was waxing lyrical about it and it seems an excellent choice if you don’t want to go to the cost of DSLR lenses etc – give it a try and don’t be scared of playing around with all the great features!
