My Garden Escape at QVC provides everything from indoor and outdoor plants to water features, garden equipment and outdoor furniture to lighting and décor. Authentic recommendations, personalised plant care tips and interactive live streams from the shopping channel’s resident garden experts will help turn any outdoor space into a Garden Escape.

Laura Southern, Commercial Director for My Garden Escape at QVC says: “The My Garden Escape Border reflects that gardens can be a sanctuary for quiet reflection, peace and tranquillity as well as being places to socialise with friends and family. QVC is a great place to find garden inspiration, ideas, and products, and we’re sure that the Border will inspire BBC Gardeners’ World Live visitors to create their own Garden Escapes at home.”  

The Beautiful Borders are a popular feature at all BBC Gardeners’ World events, providing small-space inspiration and achievable, budget-friendly ideas to take home. This year’s event will feature twenty Borders, each with a completely different style but all packed with creative design features and interesting planting schemes. For some designers, the Beautiful Borders are a first step into show garden design and build, with some going on to design larger Showcase Gardens at subsequent BBC Gardeners’ World events.

Rachel Poletti-Gadd, Portfolio Director at Immediate Live, organisers of BBC Gardeners’ World Live, said: “We’re delighted to have QVC joining us for BBC Gardeners’ World Live this year, sponsoring the wonderful Beautiful Borders. Visitors really enjoy the creativity that goes into these special gardens and chatting with the designers and teams behind them too. I think they’re really going to love Kitti’s eye-catching design. Being able to ‘shop the look’ through QR codes will add a really exciting element too.”
