Uploading images from ipad

Posted: 18/03/2016 at 08:28

Hello Missy Krissy,

Apologies for the problem you're experiencing - this is an issue we're aware of with image uploads from an iPad.

A solution isn't far off - we'll be launching a mobile- and tablet-friendly version of the forum in April (more details shortly), when you'll be able to upload images.

In the meantime, I'm afraid the only solution is to upload from another device - if you need any further assistance please drop us a line at

Thanks for bearing with us.

Secret Garden

Reply to Norman7: I've just checked your GW website and your Secret Garden access has been activated, so you should now be able to view the content (you need to be logged in first):

If you still can't view the page, please try refreshing it (Cmd + F5 on a PC, Cmd + R on a mac, or using the reload icon on a tablet). Do please drop us a line at if you have any further problems.

Reply to flowerpower15: You have two email addresses registered against a GW site account, and the Secret Garden access is activated against one of these. It could be that you can't view the content because you're logged in with the other address - I'll send you an email at both addreses to let you know which of the accounts to use.

New 'Secret Garden' emails

Posted: 08/02/2016 at 15:13

Hello jekylandhide,

All of the content published in the Secret Garden is brand new to the site, and exclusive for Gardeners' World Magazine subscribers. You will find links within these new projects and features to other content around the site, but all of the content on the Secret Garden landing page is new (currrently 47 items, with plenty more to follow).

This content is the first to use our new page designs, which will be rolled out on the rest of the site over the next few months. These new designs are 'responsive' i.e. they'll adapt to the device they're viewed on, so will work equally well on a desktop computer, a tablet or a smartphone.

Do visit regularly as new content - videos, projects, features and subscriber-only offers - will be added each week.

Hello Purple Queen, thanks for the query - a member of the team will be in contact with you on Monday, when they're back in the office.

Reply to Lyn: I'm very sorry that you've not heard anything about your subscription. I've passed your message on to the subscriber customer service team and asked somebody to contact you as a matter of priority on Monday.

Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

Posted: 20/11/2015 at 16:55

Hello everyone,

There wasn't any censorship involved here - the thread was deleted solely because it had degenerated into bickering. We haven't had to enforce the 'no bickering' policy for a while, I'm pleased to say, but we will continue to remove threads if we have another outbreak of negativity / personal attacks etc

As dovefromabove suggests, do please feel free to start another thread on this topic.

Hello Stephen. Our technical team is currently in the process of rebuilding the forum, to make it fully 'responsive' so it works better on all devices. This project will include an upgrade of the email notifications, to stabilise the service and iron out all of the bugs that people are currently experiencing. The technical team is focusing entirely on the new version at the moment, so I'm told there won't be any more work on the current service. Do please bear with us while this work is going on - it's a big project, but it will go live later in the year.

Hello Stephen / NGLittleSeedlings,

I'm sorry you're not receiving the email alerts - I'll double-check with the technical team if there are any problems with the service. I've also asked our data team to check why your weekly email newsletter isn't coming through.

Reply to annmarie: the faces/emojis only appear if you choose 'Advanced editor' in the forum section of 'My settings', which you can access by clicking your username, top right-hand corner of the screen.

Gardening gloves and sweaty hands

Posted: 11/08/2015 at 09:33

Hello everyone,

Cathy43 is quite right to point out that "there are no such thing as stupid questions, only questions we don't know the answer to yet and the only way to find the answer is to ask."

It's important that everybody feels comfortable posting a question here, particularly if they're new to gardening, without fear of ridicule. We all have to start somewhere!
