BBC Gardeners' World magazine chose Turning Earth as its "website of the month" for January 2004.

"Wandering around the web can be like taking a railway journey, giving you a sneaky look into the wonderfully eclectic world of other people's gardens. Just as in life, virtual gardens vary enormously in quality and size, but this month's top site is a real five-star find.

As well as being packed with ideas, photos and personal recommendations, it's a fast, elegant and well-designed site to boot, setting it apart from many of its net neighbours. Written and compiled with a sensitive poetic spirit, there is much to read, from an absorbing monthly diary of this small Yorkshire garden to intelligent articles on favourite plants combined with sound horticultural advice. The author is particularly passionate about shade, climbers and evergreens, and if, like so many gardeners, you're also mad about cats, don't miss the feline section of the site."
