Our guide attracts visitors from all over the world - we know that because we often receive feedback. We started the guide as a hobby in 2002, as at that time there were few resources on the internet to help people plan their visits. The first region we covered was Cornwall and by the time 12 months elapsed more than 200 gardens had applied to join. Over the last year we  have had around 1 million  viewers from almost every continent on the world, with 6 million page views. As a result we have generated significant income for our members. With over 500 properties on our guide and more applying to join we should maintain our place as a leading resource for garden lovers.
