There are several monthly gardening magazines that feature ‘reader’ gardens, but as Editor of Garden Answers I can only look for gardens for my own magazine.  

What am I looking for?

  • Gardens with plants in – not just hard landscaping
  • Gardens with a good transformation story
  • Gardens where the owner has done most of the planting themselves
  • Gardens with attractive planting combinations
  • Gardens with a good succession of seasonal colour
  • Gardens with good autumn colour and winter structure

If you would like your garden to be considered for a feature in Garden Answers magazine email me at
