Thanks so much for playing, everyone. The comments were truly enlightening for me, even given that you had to say something in order to win. If these comments are any indication, about 99.9% of you want to continue reading print, with digital as a supplement. About 90% of you are missing something in the current crop of gardening magazines.
And about half of you think this publication may be too pricey, and that is the only area in which I disagree. I have it, so I know that receiving 4 of these would be like getting 4 high-end-paperbacks full of interesting and often unusual garden content per year. With that in mind—and knowing what paperbacks cost—the price seemed unremarkable to me. I may buy a subscription and I would definitely consider this a great gift.
As Carol/May Dream Gardens stated in her comment, if this is the type of publication we say we want, it will only survive if we support it.
Here are the winners:
John Connolly (John please comment here and add your email–it will not be public)
Jo Ann (who mentioned Laura Ingalls Wilder–in case there are 2 Jo Anns)
The winners were chosen by picking random numbers, not for the quality of their comments. But the comments were really great! Thanks for sharing them.
