Which magazine do you enjoy the most?

My favorite is Fine Gardening. I love the articles, the features and the fabulous photos (one pictured here). I find it inspiring.

gardening in southwest is very tricky and different from other climates. Phoenix home and garden magazine has monthly gardening calendar as well as a feature on some one's home garden. It also has trouble shooting articles as well.
Sunset has nice ideas--garden plans for southwest region as well as travel places ..etc.

Fine Gardening, Horticulture and Country Living Gardener.

By the way, this is clematis Multi Blue, compliments of pirl! Love wandering the garden and smiling when I see a gift plant from a fellow gardener, makes it special. :-)

I must have lost my memory. I have no recall of that at all.

Such a lovely photo, Sue.

I absolutely agree about thinking of friends when I see a plant given to me by someone.

Is Country Living Gardener still in print. I thought it went out a few years ago. I will surely be interested if it is still available.

I still have my old ones too. Country Home Gardener which became Better Homes and Gardens Country Gardener also went by the wayside. I loved them both. Like going on garden tours in my own living room. I like Horticulture, Fine Gardening and Garden Gate but the personal aspect is missing.

New to me as well. Time to investigate it.

I'm still catching up with some old Gourmet and Bon Appetit...from the 70's and 80's, as well as five years of untouched Food & Wine.

gardening mags have been a disappointment b/c they seldom cover my zone9. Then the local publications are so full of advertising, there's very little of interest to read. Besides, since I got hooked to the PC, I don't read printed matter nearly as much as I used to.
