BBC Gardeners’ World has record-breaking month

BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine 2023 May issue has become the highest revenue generating monthly in the UK in 15 years, selling 164,576 copies on the newsstand (generating £1.4m in Retail Sales Value, an increase of 6.3% YoY).

The magazine’s success was supported by an extensive trade marketing and promotional campaign, as well as a PR campaign that generated national television and print coverage. 

One of the standout features of the May issue is the reusable 2-for-1 gardens entry card and guide, which offers readers 2-for-1 entry to 416 gardens nationwide.  

Catriona Bolger, Managing Director of BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine commented: “We were thrilled to see such a positive response from gardeners and garden visitors alike to our May 2023 issue.”
