Homes & Gardens adopts smaller format and more pages in time for spring

LONDON - Homes & Gardens, the IPC Media title, is introducing a new look and format from its April issue.

The magazine is moving to a smaller format than previously and introducing extra pages to make room for more features.

IPC has timed the changes to capitalise on the busy spring period, when sales of gardening titles usually rise significantly. The changes will be promoted with a giveaway of a garden diary.

Other changes to the title include the introduction of a new typeface for its log. The April issue goes on sale on March 3.

Deborah Baker, the editor of Homes & Gardens, said: "We like to think of it as a new look for a timeless classic. In the course of its 86-year history Homes & Gardens has seen it all -- property highs and crashes, the DIY boom and the rise and fall of the TV makeover."
