Secret Garden is an exclusive online space for Gardeners’ World Magazine subscribers, packed with extra features, videos, offers and competitions.

To access Secret Garden you’ll need a gardenersworld.com website account and an active Gardeners' World Magazine print subscription. For help in activating your access, please check the information below.

If that doesn’t resolve your issue, please get in touch via one of the methods listed further down the page.


I'm being presented with the error, "Apologies there appears to be a glitch with your print number, please contact support"

Your Secret Garden access can only be activated against one gardenersworld.com website account. If you’re getting this message it could be that you’ve already activated your subscriber code for Secret Garden access against another website login, using a different / old email address, or you may have mistyped your email address when first registering.

If you think you’ve previously activated Secret Garden access, please click ‘Log out’, top right-hand corner of the page, then click ‘Log in’ to log in with your alternative email address and password.

If you’re unsure if you have more than one login registered with gardenersworld.com or think you may've mistyped your email address when registering on the website, please send us an email and we'll check for you.

Your subscription could have lapsed and you need to renew in order to access the Secret Garden.

You could be entering an incorrect subscriber code. Please note, your subscriber code begins with a 4, and is followed by nine other digits.

If you have previously successfully added your susbriber number to your account then you may just have been signed out.
