A new editor has been appointed at Bauer Media’s weekly title Garden News.
Clare Foggett takes over from Neil Pope. She has worked on the title for four years, most recently as Gardening Editor.
Gardening is booming despite the recession. Sales of gardening products at garden centres were up 31% year on year in April.
Foggett says: ‘I’m thrilled. There will be some exciting and challenging times ahead as we try to make the most of this new mood, and rake in new readers!”
