New shopping programme for gardeners launches
Home & Garden Plus will air for the first time on Sunday, with a range of bedding plants, trees and shrubs, fruit, vegetables and gardening equipment on offer.

Home & Garden Plus is a new business venture by Bid TV controller of channels and TV presenter Andy Hodgson and horticultural veteran Peter McDermott.

The business is going into partnership with TV shopping expert JML and the show will have a regular slot five times a week. Both men will also present the show.

Mr Hodgson said: "Having spent years presenting various TV shows, I realised that there was very little gardening content on TV. In fact, the offering was incredibly poor.

"Gardeners will love our one-stop shop for all gardening needs, including a mixture of informative shows and brand new offers. We'll also produce programmes for broadcast on TV and online. We've already secured several famous faces to front the new shows."

Mr McDermott added: "It's a hugely exciting time for television gardening. There are so many outstanding programmes on terrestrial channels that are creating a new interest in gardening to all age groups - but we're hoping to bring a complete gardening solution by combining top-quality programming and information with everything a gardener needs in one place."

Rob Falconer, sales director at JML said: "It's the perfect time to launch a new gardening offering for our viewers. We're delighted to be partnering with two veterans in the field of horticulture and TV shopping."

Home & Garden Plus will broadcast on JML Sky Channel 642 from Sunday, March 9 from 12pm.
