PRESS RELEASE: 19th NOVEMBER 2018
Richgro and TV horticulture expert Charlie Albone are joining forces, and the country’s gardens are set to benefit!
Albone, best known as co-host of Foxtel’s much-loved Selling Houses Australia, is a passionate landscape designer and has been winning over audiences for more than a decade with practical advice on improving outdoor areas.
The award-winning presenter and designer is working with Richgro to create a range of educational resources to help at-home gardeners troubleshoot a variety of common problems.
It was more than just Richgro’s 150-strong product range – consisting of everything from fertilisers to soil conditioners, potting mixes, water savers and plant protection – that encouraged Albone to establish the partnership, it was also the family-owned company’s approach to doing business.
“I’ve been using Richgro products for years – they’re well-made and consistently deliver results, however, what I really like about the company is that the people behind it genuinely care, both about their customers’ gardens and about the environment,” Albone said.
With a series of explainer videos, blog posts and newsletter articles due to launch over coming months, Richgro’s National Marketing Manager Heath Okely described the partnership as exciting for Richgro customers.
“We know our customers are generally looking for solutions when they hit the gardening aisles of their local hardware store or garden centre, so we thought ‘how can we give them even greater confidence in their choices?’ Getting someone like Charlie, who is so knowledgeable and has such a down-to-earth way of explaining things, seemed to be a good way to do that,” Okely said.
Fans of the TV star and gardening enthusiasts alike can have Albone’s advice delivered direct to their inbox monthly by signing up to Richgro’s monthly newsletter using the form at the bottom of this page.
