Ordinarily, I pass over Birds and Blooms at the newsstand, because I find it too simplistic for my tastes and interests. However, I was desperate for a garden magazine fix today, and Birds and Blooms' "Gardening Made Easy" special edition was the only thing I hadn't read yet. I bought it, and although it's still not a perfect fit for me, I think it's by far the BEST beginning gardening special issue from any publisher I've ever seen. The information was concise, there were some very good tips, and the magazine was well-put-together. The copy was neither condescending nor overly technical.

I have four young children and can't justify a purchase of Birds & Blooms when I know I can read moms for free when she is finished with it (monthes later)
For Yule (Christmas) she got me my very own subscription!!! Yeah, now I don't have to read hers with the dog eared corners, coffee stains, and missing pages because she just "had to keep a really cool idea"
I wait for the mail man every day, I love reading it and look forward to it anyway I can get it. Thanks Mom you rock!
Oh, and thanks B&B you rock too

Birds and Blooms is grate. It is the most beautiful magazine I get. It is like Dave's Garden just people helping others by what they have done themselfves.You do not even have to read it to get a lot out of it, you just have to look at the pictures. Joan
Our whole family loves Birds and Blooms
the kids love the pictures and how tos
it gives us a chance to see other areas
that we may not get to otherwise.
plus the new Birds and Bloom extra
means we get it every month.

Absolutely one of my favorite magazines! No ads is a big plus! I love to read about all the plants and birds that we dont get here. I can live through this magazine.

I don't want to say anything bad about Birds & Blooms, it's just not what I expected.
The magazine doesn't seem to have much to offer a Southern California gardener.
Rather than a "how to - what to - when to" kind of magazine it's more of a community of garden enthusiast sharing personal photos and expereinces.

What's not to love "Birds & Blooms" all in one magazine!! Now to tease us more they have come out with an "Extra" edition. Another magazine I keep. My husband loves to find the acorn and tolerates me going "look, look you've got to see this picture!"

This is probably my favorite magazine. I can't wait for each issue to come. If I don't have time to sit and read the articles. I can flip through it just to see the beautiful photographs.
