Harrowsmith Gardening DigestAs many of my readers know, I love a good renovation, home decor, or outdoor living magazine.  There are so many to choose from and being in the business, I spend a  lot of my time reviewing what’s engaging to the reader.

One publication that I thoroughly enjoyed was HARROWSMITH’S GARDENING DIGEST 2015.  The current issue is available at newsstands and online until September 1, 2015.

The issue was released just in time for Canada Blooms, the nation’s largest gardening and landscape exhibition, Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest is filled with inspirational ideas for the coming months. Whether it’s growing your own heirloom vegetables, finding the best ways to serve them up for supper, or advice on the best gardening gear from our very own Mark Cullen, Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest is an ideal early spring companion for anyone wanting to flex their green thumbs.

With its 194 pages of information on how to get the most out of your lawns and gardens, Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest will appeal to rural and city folks alike, with practical tips that can be put to use, whether you tend a ten-acre garden or are content to fuss over a window box.

Inside the 2015 edition of Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest you’ll also learn more about:

  • The Seeds of Survival: A look at the Svalbard Seed Vault and the world’s seed bank system;
  • The Polish Pepper Prince of Flamborough: Hot peppers are a fun addition to any garden–we even offer a couple of ways to serve them up;
  • Tomatosphere: As kids across Canada are learning, the future of space travel will depend on being able to grow food in space;

Harrowsmith, and its parent company Moongate Publishing are also solid supporters of Canada Blooms. This year it will host the Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest Learning Stage, featuring a number of interesting and informative speakers and presentations.

The 2015 edition of Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest continues the traditions that generations of readers enjoyed in the, the former Harrowsmith Country Life magazine. Whether you live in the country or wish you could, the Harrowsmith family of publications, which includes Harrowsmith’s Almanac and the soon-to-be-released online magazines Harrowsmith’s My Kind of Town and Harrowsmith’s Homes, has something to pique your interests. The freshly redesigned Harrowsmith Website (www.harrowsmithalmanac.com) will serve as an additional source for the readership.

Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest evolved largely as the result of feedback from readers who were looking for the kind of gardening content that made Harrowsmith Country Life renowned,” says Harrowsmith’s Editor Maurice Crossfield. “We are always aiming to provide the Harrowsmith community with a combination of interesting and useful information on country living and how to tread a little more lightly upon the earth.”
