We inspire people to enjoy home gardens.

About us


We call our tiny company Inspiring Media Inc. We’re based in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.  Our perspective is North American.

Our audiences include expert and beginning gardeners — anyone who really wants to know the what, when and how of gardening.

We invest in excellent content that people can trust and act upon. Our articles and photography are commissioned from accomplished professional contributors. We assign articles and photography and pay for the published contributions. Articles are fact-checked.

We publish Garden Making magazine, and the My Garden Containers app.

We celebrate the joy of gardening while presenting comprehensive and clearly presented information and ideas. As a trusted source, we provide an excellent environment for marketing messages.

Gardeners seek new products and ideas. You can effectively reach enthusiastic gardeners in the welcoming environment of Garden Making magazine and website.

Your advertising will reach experienced as well as neophyte gardeners who enjoy gardening as a satisfying recreation.

Increasingly, men and women in their 30s and 40s are eager to learn more about gardening to enhance their personal landscape. At the same time, gardening continues to be a popular activity for people age 50 or older who are spending more time and money on their surroundings.
