Read all about it


Online. Most garden magazines do not provide their print content online, or give only a sampling. So it's news that Upstate Gardener's Journal, an excellent resource for people in Central and Western New York, is now providing a digital edition for free on its website. UGJ is not a glossy but it has great information, including a yearly resource directory (that's what's up now), plant profiles, gardens of note, advice for cold climate gardeners, and more. UGJ is the creation of publisher/editor Jane Milliman, who founded it in 1995.
