This page looks more like what the NZ gardener is all about: gardening. The other looks like just one more food magazine. Although I do think the bench may look better looking at it from more of a front-on angle. thanks for us the opprotunity to vote.
I like this cover, as it shows the garden as well as the harvested veges.
A Barrow load of good garden food, says it all for the fruits of our labour.
Gardening is very good and I love home back gardening very much.jobs in new zealand
Having a photo of things in a garden is for growing and gardening. Having a basket of produce, is a cook book cover.
It would be nice if the diary didn't have a year on it so we could keep adding to it if it wasn't full & just date our notes as we go.Just a thought.....
I have had one of the garden diaries 2 years ago and it is a fantastic and easy to understand publcation and a must for all gardeners.
All these veges from your own garden!
All thses veges from your OWN garden!
The cover on the L is preferable because it shows the veggies in the context of a garden. The veggies on the cover on the R could well have come from a supermarket, because they are displayed in a container on a bench or table. No proper context for growing your own here.
Some colour looks better than the plain white background. Both are great designs though :)
love the wheel barrow we cant do without :-))also the green lawns :-))relaxing looking at it.patreena
I love this pic for the cover of the 2012 Diary...it is so "abundant"..yet so restful!
this one is way more "homely"
Love this picture - it gives an overall picture of the garden while also giving an indication of all the hard work that goes into it!
More convincing..."get back to growing"...
Love the wheelbarrow - my grandmother had one just like it!
Love this cover, the other ones boring!
I liked the look of this cover as it shows not only vegetables but flowers and is more colourful
The first cover with barrow shows both vegetables and flowers which covers all aspects of gardening.Is colourful also. Gay T Gisborne.
I prefer this cover because gardening isn't just about vegetables
This cover reminds me of all the things I loved when growing up with the garden loving Dad. It would start my day with a smile each day. Mary, Masterton
Just love the old wheelbarrow!
Great photo, this is what every keen gardener has in his/her backyard yard. Looks like work and that is what gardening is. Pleasing work with a reward at the end.
Perfect cover for the gardener. Love the content and the colours of the cover. very eye catching.
This one connects me to my garden experiences a more lasting real feeling. The other pops at me more visually but I look at it and think someone could have just bought that stuff from the supermarket.
Absolutely this one. Looks like gardening for your own veges...
That picture just makes me want to get out in the garden.
The barrow looks like you have been around your garden gathering both veggies and flowers while tendering at the same time with the tools and watering can.
these, are unmistakably grown at home, the other could be the result of a trip to the farmer's market—it perfectly captures the romance of growing veges (which most non-gardeners just don't understand) :-)Next year I vote for a picture of an urban farm!
To enter plantings and harvests into a diary you are indeed a serious gardener.I love watching from one year to the next when successes occurred, or the odd failure and the remedy used at that moment. Real gardeners like to be shown gardens.
Agree with what everyone else has said - the garden and wheelbarrow pictured together with freshly harvested produce sums up what it is to be a gardener!
I think this pic says it all about gardening. Flowers, vegies, tools, the ever essential wheel barrow, of course the absolute must have 'watering can', a lawn . . well done with this pic. *bows*
This cover photo is different style to other years diaries..new year and a new approach seems appropriate,
Like the homeliness of this photo rather than the other, the other looks a little clinical. And look at all those vegies... yum!
The balance between the green lawn and produces in the wheelbarrow meaning work is well done and more inspirational for me than the basket of produces. I have been using the diary for the last 2 years and it is rather interesting to go back and read what we did in details. I'll definitely will get another one this year.
Remind me when I was a kid(many years ago)My Dad was a great gardener & had a barrow just like that one & he could fill itno problem & then give most of it away to our neighbours.Reg C
This cover looks more natural to me, which is what gardening is all about, getting in touch with and adding to nature. The stark white background of the other makes it looks like is was shot in a lab. The flowers are a beautiful addition underneath the wheelbarrow too. :)
Great cover idea
This one looks more in keeping with NZ Gardener magazine. Real homegrown veges, nothing posh. Love it!
hi, the other cover is boring. looks like every second gardening mag and book. thanks
This photo puts it all into perspective...where the veges come from.I liked the "seeds/punnets to grow now" section in the 2010 diary. Wasn't in last year..hope its ocming back
I agree with one of the other comments. Yellow text on a white background is regarded as a big no no in the packaging business (as on the other cover) as it is totally unreadable from any distance. This barrowload cover is much better.
This is me and my mates type of gardening :-)Have after 5 weeks away in Morocco and Spain and it is so good to be home in the green green pastures of Home. Just getting my veg garden ready today and off to buy my goodies, just check your mag to see what I need before I go. Thanks a million for being YOU.Karen Gordon
Definitely the better option - all about a day in the garden. The clarity of the other cover is eye-catching... but too "seen that before advert-type picture"
Great cover as it visualises the fruits of great gardening
This cover shows that gardening is about more than just growing vegies. (The other one could be a gardening, shopping, or health diary.)It has all the important elements of a garden. :D
I totally agree with all the other comments.This is so what gardening is all about. The picture sums it up - flowers, veggies, watering can, tools and that most essential "wheelbarrow". This picture makes me want to buy a diary, the other doesn't.
The wheelbarrow suggests the work involved in gardening. The garden in the background shows the beauty of the environments some gardeners enjoy and others aspire to. And the veg in the barrow is our reward for our labours.Option Two could be a box of veg from the supermarket
The wheelbarrow and other tools suggest the work that gardeners do. The beauty of the background shows the environment some gardeners enjoy and others aspire to. And the veg in the barrow is our reward.Option Two looks like a box of veg from the supermarket.
Ideal for the Get Growing Garden Diary cover Get This barrow of vegetables - is more suitable to me for "GET GROWING"
the other cover is a generic cover...how many times have we seen almost the same pic???The wheelbarrow at least shows some sweat to it...
Veges, garden and flowers. Just what makes me get into the garden...all aspects of it!!
I love this page as it's different to the usual but really says what the diary is about - the work and the reward.
