A New Garden Magazine Well Worth Reading

I have just received the premiere issue of a new magazine titled Gardenmaking. Boy am I surprised!. The editor and staff  have rejuvenated, or should I say, re invented, the art of garden magazine publication.

The graphic design is beautiful, the title banners are witty and the signed articles are written superbly by experts in related fields. The pages overflow with useful, interesting, eye-catching information, with high quality color photos illustrating  every topic.

I found no useless filler here, no cookie recipes, no arts and crafts projects, just beautifully presented, serious and abundant gardening information. This magazine is published in Canada but it is world class.

Don’t wait! Contact the publisher now to subscribe and insist on obtaining a copy of the premiere issue, if that is still possible. It will blow you away.

Here is the link to the magazine and its subscription site.

A garden magazine with no filler content? Fantastic! Is there a section devoted to food? Perhaps kitchen gardening or potagers?

Thanks Allan, I am going to send for it right away. In regard to your post on the organic weed killer, is it safe to use of weeds that are embedded in the grass. I presume it won't harm the grass??

Thanks for the recommendation - without naming any names, certain North American publications have been on a definite downward slope - I look forward to reading Gardenmaking.
