GoY News: 'Favourite Photos' For Your Garden


By peter


Hi Everyone,

For those plantaholics that have been busy adding plants to your GoY garden we’ve added plant ‘favourite photos’ so you can customize your garden page.

Previously we always showed the oldest photo of plants on your garden page. With favourite photos, you can choose which pictures are displayed on your GoY garden.

To choose your favourites, simply click the ‘Choose photo’ links on your GoY garden page, or go to each plant individually and there is a link to choose a favourite just above your photos.

My GoY Garden

If you haven’t started using your garden on GoY, take a look at the gardens created by some of our most prolific plantaholics…
AndrewR has over 600 plants, Spritzhenry has more than 800 and BlueSpruce has an incredible 1,060 plants!!

We hope you like the change. Now you can take photos of your plants and their progress in all seasons but keep your GoY garden in full bloom all year round :o)

Happy gardening.

I like adding plants to My Garden too. It's great fun, but hard to choose favourites. Still, I'll try!

BBB, you can still add lots of photos for a plant, you just get to choose which one is shown now :o)

Fab new addition, guys! I'm just sad that I can't have more fun with this, due to the way I use my Garden section. :-(

But, can well understand the frustration when, faced with upwards of 30 pics of one plant, deciding which should "go through to the next round!". Another gr8 innovation to help us - Many Thanks!
