Home & Garden Plus has launched in the UK and immediately announced a partnership with the UK’s number one as seen on TV company JML on Sky Channel 642. The new partnership will begin airing this Sunday (March 9th) on JML Sky Channel 642 from midday.
The dedicated gardening lifestyle business will be the only destination for gardeners’. The new venture incorporates a media production and retail arm under one umbrella to services all the needs of the gardener.
The launch of the new venture was the brainchild of former Bid TV Controller of Channels and TV presenter, Andy Hodgson and horticultural veteran Peter McDermott. Both will appear as presenters on JML and Home Garden Plus.
Andy 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”, explains Andy. ”We’ll also produce programmes for broadcast on TV and online. We’ve already secured several famous faces to front the new shows.”
“This is just the start. We have extensive plans for the brand and plan to be the portal for lifestyle gardeners in Europe.”
The Home & Garden Plus website, www.HomeGardenPlus.com, will begin by offering a range of garden essentials, grow your own and garden hardware.
“It’s a hugely exciting time for television gardening”, says Peter McDermott, who is one of the business co-founders.
“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 2 veterans in the field of horticulture and TV shopping.”
