I feel like it's ages since I had a magazine through the post so am trying to to work out what the most recent issue I have read is to determine if/when my subscription ran out without me noticing. Can someone give a brief synopsis of AT's last word article for the Dec and Jan issues? 



  • Evening PoddingtonP - the latest issue is the January edition, with a sparrow on the cover (heading: Save our Sparrows!). AT's Jan last word is on New Year Resolutions, and what he'd like to change about the gardening world.

    Other content in the issue - Monty on how to have 12 months of interest in your garden; Carol's guide to clematis, planting and pruning; StartIng a veg plot, with Adam Frost's tips on getting the most from your space; and 50 new gardening ideas to try in 2017. Plus the world's top wildflower destinations, and we ask: Can gardening help to save the NHS? 

    Hope this jogs your memory! If it doesn't sound familiar, and you want to see the latest subs offers, try here:

    Thanks, and have a good weekend...

    If you do subscribe make sure it's delivered by Royal Mail, not courier.  They changed my delivery to courier and I didn't receive a single copy on time during that period.  In fact I didn't receive a couple of the courier deliveries at all!  A couple of calls to the subscriptions office got it sorted.  No more problems since it reverted to Royal Mail.

    Are they still sending out reminders that your subscription is up for renewal? When I didn't receive December magazine I rang subscriptions and found it had lapsed so renewed it then. I was told I would receive December and January but haven't got either yet! Mine come through Royal Mail/La Poste.

  • Well in the past I have had a reminder in with a mag, but haven't noticed one recently. I assumed it was just me not noticing in the chaos of Christmas, but perhaps you're right and i haven't has a reminder. 

    Thanks all!

    My subscription is done by Direct Debit and I don't recall seeing anything to tell me it was due for renewal.  To be honest, there is so much bumph (the polite version) in the pack that I don't look that closely.  It all just goes straight into recycling.

    We don't get much"bumph" here in France KT53 so I know I didn't receive it, if there was one. Maybe others could say if they have stopped. Still waiting for December and January issues though.
