Your Questions About Gardening

Mandy asks…

Which gardening magazine would you recommend (in the UK)?

For a beginner (in her 20′s) who is keen to learn about gardening and get practical advice
That’s great guys, thank you! I do have a Tesco clubcard but have never used it so not that familiar with it… how do I go on about getting the subcription through them??

I have had a flick through a couple of their issues and I do actually really enjoy reading it.

GardenersCardiff answers:

Gardeners World magazine, you can get a years subscription through Tesco clubcard rewards vouchers for only £10.50.

You have to use your clubcard when you purchase anything instore or online with Tesco, you get so many ponts depending on how much you spend each transaction, that way every so many months they send you out rewards vouchers, i use mine online to purchase my magazine subscriptions, without this you would be best getting books out of the library and occasionally purchasing a weekly issue of Amateur Gardening or the newspaper Garden News, they will all tell you something useful but i always find the books i have bought or borrowd to be more informative, its just books can get slightly out of date whereas the magazines are up to date but its really just minor things that will be missing from the books like new variations of plants on the market.

Chris asks…

What kind of magazines do women like to read ?

Financial magazines? Home and Garden magazines? Entertainment magazines? Fashion magazines? PC magazines? etc.

Do you buy them? Or read them while waiting for your appointment? Or do you have a subscription(s)?

Anything you like to share is appreciated

In case you wonder… the questions are for my business plan I’m writing. Thank you in advance for answering my questions.

GardenersCardiff answers:

Personally, I think it depends on what kind of stuff you are into. For example, I was at a kiddie soccer match today and saw that the gentleman sitting next to me was reading – of all things – a gardening magazine! I had never seen that before.

Anyway, if you are interested, I subscribe to Consumer Reports. When flying, I always buy the following magazines: Redbook, US, People, Ladie’s Home Journal and Shape.

James asks…

Do the chemicals you see advertised in gardening magazines claiming they will keep snakes out of your yard rea

GardenersCardiff answers:

NO it’s a waste of money, snakes are as much as we hate them, natural. A part of life. A natural border will keep the snakes out of your personal area. They hate mothballs (so do alot of people!). Snakes Hate Merigolds! (flowers). Use keywords like Natural borders /gardens, etc and you will find a natural way to keep unwanted animals out of your yard. I had to book, I just can’t remember the title.
