Amateur Gardening is a British magazine dedicated to gardening, including the latest gardening news, advice, feature articles and celebrity columns and interviews.

Famous writers for the weekly magazine have included Alan Titchmarsh - who also worked there as deputy editor; Monty Don, Charlie Dimmock;Bob Flowerdew, Anne Swithinbank, Percy Thrower and Peter Seabrook. Tim Rumball is the current editor. Among previous editors were Adrian Bishop (also editor-in-chief and publisher); Graham Clarke; Peter Wood; Arthur Hellyer and Shirley Hibberd.

The magazine was launched in May 1884 and is the UK's oldest consumer gardening magazine. It is Britain's best-selling weekly gardening publication. In recent years, its editorial office has been in Poole, Dorset.

To mark the Millennium, it launched its Allotments 2000 campaign, which called for - and achieved - a Parliamentary inquiry into the future of allotments.

It has a successful consumer show, The National Amateur Gardening Show (NAGS) which takes place at the Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, each September.
