Normally I would delete an email with the words "New Gardening Shows on DIY Network" in the subject line. And even if I did open the email, I would be highly suspicious of an opening line like: "Being a Northern Californian, I’m not sure you’re as excited as I am for the warm weather and sunshine — but here in NY, this week definitely marks the beginning of Spring and we’ve got our sights all set on Summer. And of course, that means getting our yards ready. As a gardening afficionado yourself, I thought you’d be interested to hear about…"
And here at GardenRant, we go all year long, baby. Even if that means pounding our fists on the block of ice that is our front yard in the middle of January. Get ready? We’re always ready.
And besides, I just hate the idea of someone’s viral marketing campaign actually working.
But I gotta say, Ahmed Hassan’s kind of hot. And he hangs around garden centers and asks if he can go home with you.
