UPDATE: THIS ROUND OF RESEARCH IS NOW CLOSED. WITH MANY THANKS


I’m helping Daniel and the Gardenersworld.com team explore ways to make this website more useful.

If you have 20 minutes to spare for a phone call over the next few days, I’d love to chat to you about how you decide what to do in your garden.

All abilities and ages warmly welcomed!  This is purely a short research project; there are no hidden sign-ups or surprises. 

Please drop me a line at [email protected], or better, please fill in this short form which will help me to make sure I chat to a good range of gardeners.

    Morning Mike, I've worked at Immediate Media with the GW team since about 2011 when we relaunched this website and set up the first version of this forum. I help to try evolve our websites based on what will be most useful for readers.

    Right now I have the very enjoyable job of talking to GW readers about how they approach planning and staying on top of what needs doing in their gardens. That way, if we create new content or online tools to help with planning, we'll do it based on an understanding of the range of ways people approach their gardens, not just our best guesses.

    Planning. Now that's a new concept for me :)

     :D 
    I now have the luxury of being able to do some planning because I've retired. 
    As to keeping on top of what needs done - it's largely weather dependent, and whether I can be bothered.  ;)

    I would do this if it could just be by email. I don't like phones   :)

    And me.  Plus it's nigh on impossible to give a time when I would be available for a phone discussion more than about an hour or so in advance.

    And me ! That was my first thought,  l hate phone question things. I once did a preliminary job interview over the phone and it was really difficult. I didn't get through to the next round !

    Sean, l don't know what the response has been to your request , but if you want some more feedback  it might be worth considering the email route  :)
