Over the years, I've subscribed to almost every garden-related magazine out there. It's a lot less expensive than purchasing individual copies, and it's fun to have them delivered to your door. Is there someone on your shopping list who is hard to buy for? If they enjoy gardening, consider a gift subscription.
These are some of my favorites:
Subtitled "The Art and Science of Smart Gardening," this magazine is aimed at the serious gardener, but has plenty for the novice, too. True to its name, Horticulture is one of the most respected magazines for garden-lovers who want in-depth information on plants.
Another magazine for the garden connoisseur, Fine Gardening is filled with plant information and tips from experts and home gardeners alike. Lots of articles you'll want to save - I ended up getting binders for all my favorites.
For the sophisticated gardener, Garden Design is famous for its lush photography. Its features cover the latest information on trends in products, plants and landscape design.
GreenPrints, subtitled "The Weeder's Digest", is a must for any garden lover. The book pictured above is a compilation of some favorites from the magazine. Similar to Readers Digest in form, each issue is an anthology of garden-related stories, some hilarious, others heart-warming. Read sample stories here.
