What do you think of Carolina Gardening magazine?

I used to get it years ago but quit when it started to seem like it was recycling stories. I still have several old issues though, including a profile of the sisters's garden on Gimghoul Road in Chapel Hill. (I have been a fan of their garden ever since I first saw it when running in their neighborhood over 20 years ago.) But I do wish it had more numerous and in-depth stories about local gardeners and even nurseries.

I also let my subscription expire several years ago. Some of the newer garden writers they used needed a refresher (or in some cases, Basic training), in the Horticulture field. It reached a point where it was no longer interesting.

I liked some of the articles, but it should be called North Carolina Gardening. Not much in it specific to SC gardeners, especially retail nurseries, garden centers, etc.

It is the type of magazine I subscribe to, drop and then resubscribe.

I enjoy it when it arrives but as others state, it does seem to recycle articles. If you have not received it in the past, I say it it a shot.

even though i pick it up for free at a local garden shop, i still find it boring. dully written, no personality. they need to jazz it up.

Being from the North, I do find it interesting so far. I also enjoy the ads and find some good information in them. Just my opinion. Nancy

I found too, too many mistakes in the magazine and stopped my subscription. I am a daylily nut and an old garden rose nut. Every time they would have an article on either of these I would find statements that would have me seeing red because they were so WRONG! I realized that the articles about other plants that I don't know so well probably had mistakes too, and so I couldn't depend on anything I read. I quit reading. Denise
