The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



I hope that many of you will agree with me: I just had to say how much I like the changes to our website. So much easier to see and navigate. Of course we need to get used to the changes, but that shouldn’t take long. Well done whoever was responsible. x

I'm loving the larger print and the new layout. It seems to be so much easier to get around the site now.

I also love the fact that there are more photos visible at one time on the 'Garden Pictures' pages ... takes less time to skim through them. It's great that when you do want to take a closer look at one of the photos, it's now much larger for your viewing pleasure.

I know some people find the background colour annoying ... I don't mind the light blue ... it doesn't jar my eyes at all. I visit quite a few gardening sites and this one still remains one of the best!

yes, just like in adverts that says" if I can do it... you can do it". LOL it might be my imaginations... but I could see some grinning teeth and fists as I read those opinions. Most of them complained about the white background, I admit it's a bit glaring, but I adjust the brightness of my monitor. One shouldn't be upset on this changes, I'm sure the one who did this wants us to be happy, not sad . He wants us to be more inspired in our garden. Let's just be glad that this site is born for garden lovers, like you and me...

Sorry but I really dislike the icy blue colour, and the bird adverts ( I have a phobia of birds ) It's very off puting. Suppose I'll get used to the layout although I think it looks rather childish.

Oh thank goodness......and so do I Felinfan, I have never read so many negative comments in all my life, after all, we asked for changes, I love the better pictures, and the larger text, and the white is not a problem either, have got used to the blue, and as I said in my blog so much easier to find your way around, much better than some of the other sites I belong to, and they certainly would not take kindly to as much criticism as the Boys have had to endure.
Hywel have not seen any bird adverts, in fact have only ever seen one advert since the new site started

DD - I see lots of birds and lots of ice blue. I find it depressing. When you visit someone don't you enjoy it better if their house is nicely decorated and welcoming. Well I do, but GoY isn't like that any more :o(
Sorry but that's how I feel about it.

Sorry Hywel I like blue and have used it many times in our house, green is not my favourite I am a happy bunny lol

I like blue aswell. It's my fav colour of all, - but that pale shade looked icy to me lol.
Glad it's changed now. I've thanked them :o)
