Hi everyone, how are you doing this month? The weather has been absolutely glorious where I’ve been. Hope it’s been the same for you where you are. I’ve had a busy few weeks at QVC and really enjoyed myself; I feel like I’m really getting my feet under the table – or should that be potting table!
I’d love your comments on the shows and some feedback on what we could improve. You may have noticed that we are adding a few different features here and there and you may have even seen a flash new touchscreen, where we show your photos of the plants in your gardens!
I’m about to have a couple of weeks off and going across to Asia for a couple of weeks, with a sneaky trip to a plant paradise that I’ve always wanted to go to as well, so I can’t wait for that! Follow me on social media to see what I get up to!
During this month’s blog, I wanted to draw your attention to the different garden styles that we have been talking about at QVC for a little while. We’ve been doing more on this over the next few weeks and you’re even seen a few themed shows too. I should have the airing dates of those quite soon.
By grouping our offerings into four different styles this season, we really can help you to design your garden like a professional! We know that not every style is for everyone, but I’m sure you’ll find something for yourself amongst these!
This is the perfect style for anyone that loves the look of the cottage garden, with pastel colours and breezy-looking plants. It can also be a wildlife haven!
The whimsical style can be enjoyed with some of the new fairy dust decorative items that we are listing – great for cosy corners of the garden or for kids starting their own flower patch.
After all, our gardens are somewhere to escape to and relax, and we want our minds to wander, so allow yourself to dream a bit!
This style is kind of the absolute opposite of Whimsical, because it’s for someone that likes a more modern sleek appearance in their outdoor space. Urban Jungle is all about big personalities and lush foliage plants, with a few exotic blooms thrown in for good measure.
We have some brilliant modern looking furniture and decorative pieces, which would fit into any space, whether that is a small garden or a balcony. You may even find that you want to use some of those inside your home too!
In terms of plants, there’s a really fun range available, and a few tropical plants that you may not have imagined you could grow at home! Go and have a browse right away.
This style is being much talked about at the moment, as mindfulness has become a real topic and the link between physical and mental well-being is becoming more recognised. With this style, we have some amazing calming decorative pieces to help you unwind a bit. Plus, there are some simple but effective plants.
Did you know that zen gardens are one of the most searched styles of garden on the internet? With our Mindfulness theme, you can start your own right now!
Here we go – this is the part where we really relax in our gardens, when we have parties and such! The al fresco style is all about using your garden for entertaining. Whether it’s a picnic on the lawn or a big spread on a patio table, the alfresco style is more achievable than ever, thanks to some really lovely pieces.
The al fresco style can be further enjoyed by useful screening plants, which can create that feeling of intimacy and privacy. We also have some lovely table top plants that will really get people talking at your next BBQ!
So there you go – there is a short tour of our different gardening styles. But which style do you think suits you the most? Leave a comment below, and tell me why you think!
Happy shopping! xx
