Do get in touch if you have a book or product that you believe is suitable for middle-sized gardens.
I’ll only publish reviews about products, books etc that I really feel will help readers of the Middlesized Gardene blog or viewers of the Middlesized Garden YouTube channel. So I can’t guarantee a review, but I’ll try to assess this before you send the product or book. I don’t want to waste your time!
I always state if a product or book has been sent free for review. The Middlesized Garden doesn’t accept payment for reviews.

Fifteen years ago, I moved into a walled English town garden that measures 100ftx80ft (at its widest). I knew nothing about gardening, but I’d been a journalist all my life. I’d written for some of the most famous newspapers and magazines in Britain – Good Housekeeping, Harpers & Queen, The Times, the Daily Telegraph and many more.
It was my job to find experts and filter information. And to extract the elements that were important to my reader – to find out what really mattered to them and deliver information they could use easily.
So I took those skills and applied them to my middle-sized English garden. I talked to top gardeners, read the best gardening books and went on inspiring workshops.
Everything I learned had to pass the middle-sized garden test. How easy is it to do? How long does it take? Will it make the garden look good? Is it affordable? Can you fit this into a family garden or a busy life?
