How to give feedback about the new site

Posted: 29/03/2012 at 10:25

Update for puppykash. I've had the following response from Tamsin on the magazine team, who works on the Design Made Easy series with Joe, which I hope will please you:

"Thank so much for your comments. It’s really helpful to receive feedback on our features, especially when we launch a new series. Joe’s next feature in the design series, which will be in the May issue, is on L-shaped and Wide & shallow gardens, so hopefully there will be some tips that’ll help you in your garden.

In June, we’ll be looking at a  tiny courtyard garden and an irregular shaped garden.

Thank you, also, for your comments on hard landscaping and front gardens. As you say, these are common problems. I’ll try and work in ways to tackle these in future issues."

Hello puppykash, many thanks for taking the sharing your wishlist. I’ve passed your comments on to the magazine team, who produce the design series with Joe.

Regarding your other point about gardening on a budget, or with limited time, we’re currently working on ‘tagging’ all of our site content. This will enable us to pull all content on a given topic into one page. For example, we’ve tagged projects by how long they takes, so we’ll easily be able to create a page of ’30 minute projects’ or ‘afternoon projects’, which would be ideal for weekend gardeners. We’re hoping to implement the tagging on the site in the next couple of months, so do watch this space.

Gardening on a budget is very much in our minds at the moment. You might have noticed the ‘Get thrifty’ series in the magazine – we’re also inviting readers to submit their money-saving tips here on the forum.

Best wishes,
Daniel

Hello again, Anniseed. Point taken re: the seed trials. I think you're right that we should find other ways to involve visitors in the site. One of the best ways of sharing the growing process with others is through images. We are planning the addition of user image galleries later in the year, so this would be one way to check how everyone is getting on with the sweet pea and tomato seeds.

Regarding advice on raising plants from seed, we actually have a whole project section, including videos, on this subject already. Some of the advice is plant specific, e.g. grow tomatoes from seed, while some is more general e.g. sowing seeds indoors, and will apply to a broad range of plants. Please find some links below, that you might find useful:

Seeds and bulbs project section (includes lots of crop-specific projects and videos)

Greenhouse section

Plant propagation projects

Sowing seeds indoors

Sowing seeds outdoors

Blogs on sowing seeds

I hope this helps!

Reply to meiow and SebUK: please accept my apologies - I somehow managed to miss your original messages when responding to Botticelliwoman yesterday. There seems to be an intermittent glitch with the site - I've requested that it be resolved as a matter of urgency, and I'll notify you as soon as it's fixed. In the meantime, you can contact our customer service team on 0844 848 9707, who will be happy to process your order for you. Thank you for letting us know about the problem, and apologies for the inconvenience.

Reply to Jen10: It does sound as if the problem here is the file size of your image - the maximum file size for uploads is 10MB. In order to upload the image you'll need to reduce the file size. Are you on a mac or PC? If you're on a PC, there may well be an application called Paint installed, which will allow you to do this.

There is more info on Paint here.

If you have any further problems, do please let me know!
