The number of gardening based programmes on prime-time TV has helped the Gardening sector, although UK news stand sales are down for all titles. Amateur Gardening showed the only real growth year on year, with a total ABC of 55,417, up 3.4% year on year. BBC Gardeners' World outperformed the year on year trend, falling only 3.4%, to a total of 310,770, against 8.9% for the sector. Publisher Marcus Arthur says: "The adverse autumn weather had a significant impact across the whole gardening industry and this was reflected in the gardening magazine sector, so it is a fantastic achievement for the magazine." The Garden was up 4.9% year on year but other titles ­ Garden Answers, Garden Inspirations, Your Garden and The English Garden, all saw substantial sales losses. {{CTN }}
