Home & Garden Plus is growing!


The UK's newest gardening channel is now on air SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, bringing viewers exclusive offers EVERY DAY. Launched in March, the channel is already blossoming and extending its weekly broadcasting hours from 5 to a massive 70. It will be 'televisions only daily gardening destination!


The launch has shown strong customer interest in its first month during its partnership with teleshopping giants JML.


From Tuesday 8th April, Home & Garden Plus will be available from 0800-1800 daily on Sky Channel 642/Freesat 809.


Popular selling lines so far include fruit, potatoes and strawberries. The channel will expand its extensive range to TV viewers to include a wide variety of best-selling bedding plants, bulbs, grow your own fruit and vegetables and garden hardware.


To celebrate the expansion, Home & Garden Plus are hoping to start a ‘Grow Your Own’ revolution. They will offer FREE P&P on their special promotional veg seed pack. In addition, the promotional pack is on offer at only £5.99 for 10 packs!


Managing Director and lead presenter, Andy Hodgson and horticultural expert Peter McDermott both appear as presenters on the daily Home Garden Plus TV hours.


Andy said, “It’s great news that customers love our unique brand of gardening banter from our shed! Clearly our free tips and low price offers are catching the imagination of everyone with a garden, patio or yard. Now it's recommended we eat 7 portions of fruit and veg a day, we decided to open 7 days a week.”


Peter McDermott said, “We hope everyone claims our FREE P&P offer and starts a ‘grow your own’ movement in their street.”


This is only stage one of our planned expansion. We have a lot in store for viewers and customers alike as we continue to grow our own!”


The Home & Garden Plus website, available 24/7, shows a range of garden essentials, grow your own and garden hardware, most with a 5 minute video attached to watch the offers come to life.

Will Wright and Allan Graham from KPMG’s Restructuring practice were today appointed joint administrators to sit-up Limited, the digital broadcaster behind Price Drop and Bid TV.


The company’s two television channels, which broadcasted to more than 12 million homes with over 300 hours of live demonstrations each week, has ceased transmission, and the company’s online shop will close as the business ceases to trade with immediate effect. Unfortunately, a total of 229 employees, all of whom are based in London, have been made redundant as a result of the administration.


Will Wright, partner at KPMG and joint administrator, said: “It is really disappointing, given the hard efforts of the company and the support of the majority of its creditors, that a satisfactory conclusion to the restructuring could not be reached. Despite the recent approval of a Company Voluntary Arrangement agreement with creditors, a significant and unexpected fall in sales over the course of the last month meant that the company was simply unable to continue to trade.


“The small number of affected customers who have purchased items from sit-up limited within the last few days are advised to refer to the company website, which will be updated with more information in the coming days.”



The creditors of sit-up Limited, the digital broadcaster behind Price Drop and Bid TV, have today voted overwhelmingly through the proposed company voluntary arrangement (CVA), which will enable the business to restructure its fixed cost-base.


Will Wright, partner at KPMG and ‘supervisor’ of the CVA, said: “Today’s ‘yes’ vote gives sit-up Limited the green light to renegotiate its infrastructure supply contracts, rightsizing its fixed cost base and giving it a platform to trade on a more competitive basis.


“Over 75% of creditors had to vote in favour of the CVA to pass the resolution. Today’s vote saw us secure significantly more than this, with 99% of all creditors voting in favour of the CVA.”
