In the 1950s and 1960s, gardening magazines began publishing, with many of the magazines focusing on gardening as a profession.
The earliest gardening magazines were produced by the UK’s British Gourmet Magazine, which launched in 1959.
By the 1970s, magazines such as Garden Life and Garden News were created to publish articles about gardening.
The last major magazine for gardening, which appeared in the UK in the 1990s, was the American gardening magazine Garden Magazine, founded in 2002 by journalist and author John F. Ketchum.
The magazines started as a hobbyist magazine, but then diversified into a professional magazine, gardening magazine and a magazine for gardeners.
Garden Magazine was started by gardening writer, and gardener and author, Paul Ketchuem in 1983.
In 2005, Ketchm was knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to the hobby.
In 2011, Ketuem was awarded the Order of Australia for services as an author.
In 2017, he was honoured with the Order for Service and Merit in the Conservation and Conservation of Nature.
In 2018, he won the National Award for Excellence in Science and Technology.
