Another magazine for northern gardeners

– Posted in: Miscellaneous

Another magazine for northern gardeners is People, Places & Plants. This started out as a magazine for Maine gardeners, then expanded to cover all of New England. Checking their website before posting this link, I see they are about to start a second magazine for the Mid-Atlantic region. I haven’t actually seen an issue since the first year of its publication. At that point I found it to be a magazine worth browsing for the inspiration of other northern gardens, but not having enough how-to to make it worth paying for. Obviously they are doing well, so there must be plenty of people who do find them worth subscribing to.

I have also looked at Northern Gardener, the magazine of the Minnesota Horticultural Society. They had an informative article on hardy evergreen rhododendrons being bred in Finland in the sample issue I looked at, and I almost subscribed. I probably found a plant I needed more that month. Definitely worth a look.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.
