Here’s a nice long look at the question we’re always asking: Is gardening on the up or the downswing? And it seems that PW takes the National Gardening Association’s assertions about gardening’s popularity at face value, unlike Rant readers, who tend to dismiss it as hype because the NGA counts people who mow their lawn as "gardeners".
But moving on, all the gardening publishers weigh in with their strategies and – no surprise – the primary focus is appealing to those Internet-savvy young folks.
Bonus items: Domino Magazine is mentioned, and in a good way (cue Michele), and Jeff Gillman gives a nice plug for GardenRant and Cold Climate Gardening. (Thanks!)
