There's only a few here to buy in the UK I think. There's Grow Your Own, Grow It!, Kitchen Gardener and possibly Gardener's World. I'm sure there might be others I've missed.

 

So if you do, which one/ones do you regularly read?

We get the Kitchen Garden. Subscribed after the editor Steve Ott came to ours to do a photoshoot about Fiona.

That wasn't what prompted us to get it. It's simply the only magazine of its type that I found really interesting and a good read – and I am not a gardening enthusiast, so that's saying something. 

F also gets Country Living every month, one of our few "luxury" spends these days. Excellent Throne Room library material. ok

Occasionally gardeners world but the price here is silly. I subscribe to practical poultry at the moment

sorry, nor do I nowadays. I find they are very repetitive as well as being very expensive. I can get all the information I need online, without paying for it. I also appreciate seeing ordinary peoples gardens in their blogs rather than garden designers or companies trying to sell me something I don't need.

Gosh I sound like a grumpy old woman.....sorry about that !!   big_laugh

Well, I must be your (younger!! winkwhistle) sister then, Nadine, because I'm exactly the same!!  I haven't bought any magazines or papers for.....must be a couple of years at least, I read everything online too.  My mother (who doesn't do computers, despite having recently bought a laptop, which she's so frightened of she won't actually use without someone sitting beside her roll_eyes) occasionally takes pity on me and sends me some mags through the post, bless her.

Used to have Gardener's World, but I guess Danny you must be right (cheapskates) - I can't see the point of them now, and as Hattie says anything you need to know is online anyway.

Easier to find things online, too ..

I agree with all that online stuff, much easier.  I do still get Country Living but often wonder why I bother - can't be ar*ed to find out how to cancel the subscription probably.  

I'll try that again!

It is weird, isn't it - it seems to have a mind of its own!  laugh
