Re: Well, today.../ Midwest Gardening

Probably a big part of it, Zem. I used to think HD was merely stupid because in early spring it loaded up with snapdragons and zinnias and the like--stuff that would be tapiola by Easter. But now I think it's for the transplants--they all go back to Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Ontario at Easter, so it doesn't matter.

Interestingly enough, Midwest Gardening is sold in the Schnuck's grocery stores in Memphis, which is definitely the mid-south. My guess is that's because so many midwesterners have been transplanted here. I have also noticed that many of the garden centers now carry lilacs, which is really ridiculous because they cannot take our heat and humidity. Guess that's also for all the transplants.

Hello Donna,
I, too, knew about Midwest gardening going to hit the stands for some time before it actually happened. I contacted Greg and Sue, actually made a point to introduce myself at a conference where Greg was speaking. Wanted to get in on writing an article and/or supplying slides. After all I do garden in the middle of the area the magazine covers. Reaction has been quite cool and no follow-up contacts from them, so at this point does not look as though they are interested in paying outsiders. .. or they have plenty lined up for some time to come. They do call and want me to advertise in the magazine.
I heard him make a comment about Midwest Gardening going to be a "man's " magazine without all the frilliest and fluff, more substance.... thus far looks as though someone else has a voice in the publication. I have not subscribed as of yet. Not different enough to warrant another subscription coming to the mailbox.

Interesting that they were passing out Midwest gardening magazine, but it
doesn't surprise me. Greg and Sue have always promoted their products this
way. This magazine was a long time in coming to print. It was originally
promoted over a year ago. I have known Greg and Sue for ages as they owned a
local nursery near me called Crystal Palace Perennials.
