Horticulture Week passes 750,000 readers and approaches a million since coronavirus lockdown

Unprecedented interested in Horticulture Week, which has published more than 1,000 articles since coronavirus lockdown, has led to record readership figures.

Latest innovations are a new podcast, with this week's featuring gardening legend Peter Seabrook speaking about his new RHS Hyde Hall show, Chelsea Flower Show and his views on horticulture.

While some gardening publications have had to cut their coverage, Horticulture Week has provided more business-critical writing than ever during the pandemic.

This includes accurately predicting when garden centres would reopen, a month ahead of the Government announcement. 

Horticulture Week has also fought the corner on behalf of growers and parks, and featured campaigning journalism on ethnic diversity in horticulture.

International coverage of horticulture by Horticulture Week is unique in the UK, while interviews with leading gardening figures including Alan Titchmarsh as well as industry names have been prominent at hortweek.com, which has consistently been first to tell the industry about policy updates.
