    I give mine to the local gardening group - they put them out on club nights for people to help themselves.
  • thanks for that. i'll find out where mine are

  • I offered mine on my local Freecycle site. A very nice couple came and took away about 20 years' worth - they won't run out of reading material for a while!

    They're all probably too modern to be accepted by your local GP or dentist image

    My local charity shop refused them as they take up too much room & people read them not buy them. image

    I'm a bit of a hoarder with them, but sometimes I give one to my son who's a dentist! In France but he says they are popular with his English patients.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Although I subscribe now-I managed to get 3 yrs worth in pristine condition from free cycle. The gentleman who gave them to me was fab with an admirable garden! I love reading them. I take mine to the hairdressers, it blends in very nicely with Hello and OK mags.

  • You could try schools, there is a lot of talk at the moment about getting young people interested in gardening.
