The theme of the July 2017 issue is Managing Social Media.
We'd love to hear how you are using Social Media in your garden. Social Media, when used effectively, can be a great tool to connect your Garden to the wider world. It can be time consuming, and it's ever changing.
Educating, Attracting and Inspiring Visitors? Do you highlight your Garden, and/or individual employees in your Garden? What are the major tools you use? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Apps or other forms?
What have you learnt from Social Media, how to manage it, and where it will take Gardens in the future? We'd love to hear from your Strategies, Successes and less successful uses of Social Media.
