Thompson & Morgan returns to QVC

T&M will be on air for the first QVC gardening show of the year, on Jan 2.

QVC presenter Richard Jackson said; "They’ll be offering some exclusive lines, as well as some of their top sellers."

Plants to be offered include Begonia ‘Majestic Mixed’ and Fuchsia ‘Mr Blue Sky’.

T&M formerly had an exclusive agreement with QVC, but when that ended the Ipswich-based seed and plant company moved to Ideal World.

The company left Ideal World in July 2015 after the channel brought in other suppliers.

T&M will be competing for air time with the other plant suppliers. QVC will be broadcasting more than 200 hours of gardening shows next year.

Jackson added: "The QVC line-up of suppliers looks very strong for next spring. Ken Evans’s Plants 2Gardens and Rupert Precious’s Montrose of Guernsey  have just had  a particularly successful year at QVC , so they’ll probably be the biggest suppliers for 2016. Other suppliers returning for next season include Hayloft, Clare Austin, Unwins/Marshalls  and De Jager. We’ve also got our first ever gardening event day in March with 18 hours of live gardening shows."

Jackson's Flower Power range of products was selected as one of eight top British Brands at QVC at a reception for MPs at the House of Commons this week.

Thompson & Morgan horticultural director Paul Hansord said:

"We’ve worked closely with QVC in the past and it’s great to be teaming up with them again in 2016, it’s a perfect brand fit. We pride ourselves on our catalogue and online offering but to be able to show live product to viewers on screen allows us to really show their quality and performance while providing some excellent offers for gardeners. We are a multi-platform gardening retailer and working with QVC provides a further outlet for gardeners to shop at their convenience."
