Re: now Horticulture

Scientific journals...........Don't get me started. OK, they really do have some fascinating info in them. I've been critiquing articles for my professors since I started my degree program and some of them are SO YAWN! LOL! But, some of them are truly fascinating. I'm into coevolution of insects and plants at the moment so I've been devouring articles on that. Fortunately, my $3500 tuition gets my into the Texas Tech e-journals that so I can download those articles for free, I mean for $3500, from all sorts of different hort and plant journals. If anyone needs anything let me know! ----- Original Message ----- From: "Kitty" <kmrsy@comcast.net>

I don't always mind repeat articles. 4yrs ago I might not have been interested in a particular topic, but now I am. But I do agree that I don't devour the whole Hort mag the way I did 20 yrs ago. One feature they print only occasionally but is something I really look forward to is "Hort Journal" which usually discusses some new findings. I think readers who find mainstream hort magazines ho-hum, been there-read that after many years are looking for something new, something that keeps them learning. For that, I think they should look to scientific journals, or at least a newsletter compilation of them. I used to get one, can't recall the name, and there was always something of great interest in it. But again, not every issue was riveting as I'm not terrifically interested in every aspect of horticulture.

Hello Auralie,
I once asked an editor about that.... was told they do, indeed, come back to the same old same old, for that is what gardeners want and there are always new ones coming into the fold and wanting the magazine. Ever noticed how one mag will cover a certain plant and it will be in an issue of another mag the same month or close to it? Couple of times when I have suggested something not in the mainstream as yet ... the answer is no on a feature article... frustrate too many gardeners for they will not be able to find the plants easily. You can not get too far of the curve........
   Internet is changing things... stay tuned.

I find that is a problem for me, more and more. Also, I have found that after about four years a magazine begins to repeat topics. I can understand this more now that I have been writing a newsletter for my club for the last 16
years and find it harder and harder to find a new topic.  I think our
problem may be that we have already read and studied so many things
that what appeals to the "average" person seems elementary to us.
