Reach enthusiastic gardeners looking for new products and ideas
The most effective way to advertise to gardeners is to position your marketing message in the welcoming environment of Garden Making magazine and website.
We celebrate the joy of gardening for home gardeners.
Garden Making is the trusted source of comprehensive and clearly presented information and ideas for home gardeners. We provide a respected environment for marketers to connect with gardeners.
The gardening audience
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 Canadians age 50 or older who are spending more time and money on their surroundings.
