Launching My New Garden Collection on QVC

Be sure to tune Monday, September 25th, at 6pm ET when I launch my new Fashion Collection on QVC! 

Earlier this week, I launched the first items from my Garden Collection. I am so proud of what we've developed and designed. The products include my Easy Grip Secateurs, a Hori Hori knife, an Electric Trimmer & Edger, my Pressure Select Pressure Washer, a Lightweight Compact Multi-Purpose Blower, a Multi-Angle Chain Saw, and my Kink-Free Lightweight All-Purpose Garden Hose. All these great tools come in four wonderful colors - mint, sand, black, and slate. They're all so easy-to-use, and so lightweight - I know you'll love them! 

Over the next several weeks, I will be appearing on QVC to unveil many of my new product offerings in fashion, skincare, garden and food. I'm thrilled to share these new and innovative products with such a large QVC audience - QVC engages shoppers via 15 television channels reaching more than 360-million homes, seven web sites and 195 social pages. Below are the dates and times for some of my upcoming QVC appearances. I will also provide more information on my Twitter page @MarthaStewart and on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48. Enjoy these photos.

Schedule of QVC appearances:

Touring My Gardens with the Bedford Farmers Club

Today is the first day of fall - a wonderful time of year to walk through the gardens of my Bedford, New York farm.

As you all know, every now and then I agree to a handful of special guided walks to show visitors how we care for all the many plantings at the farm. Most of them are conducted in the spring, but a select few are also scheduled at the very end of the season, as leaves begin to fall. This week, I welcomed a couple of groups, including the Bedford Farmers Club, one of the country's oldest farm organizations, which works to foster awareness of the area's remarkable agricultural heritage.

Here are some pictures of what they saw - enjoy.

A Garden Tour for the Pacific Horticulture Society

There's always something new to see during tours of my Bedford, New York farm.

Yesterday, I opened my gardens to the Pacific Horticulture Society, a non-profit resource for west coast gardeners, designers, horticulturists, and other plant enthusiasts. PHS works to inform and inspire members through its quarterly publication "Pacific Horticulture", its web site, and its local and international study programs. One of the events was a five-day tour of several botanical institutions and private gardens in New York City and the Hudson River Valley, including a visit to Cantitoe Corners, my farm in Bedford. The group of 25 was led by Bob Hyland, accomplished plantsman, designer, and owner of Contained Exuberance, Contemporary Pots & Plantings for the Garden in Portland, Oregon.

Before leaving for a busy day at the office, I stopped to greet the group and to welcome them to my home. My head gardener, Ryan McCallister, then guided everyone through my many gardens, groves and allees. Here are some photos - enjoy.
