Learn everything about gardening
Gardening magazines are designed to help the new and the experienced gardener grow lush and beautiful gardens, and enjoy their hobby even more. There are a great many gardening magazines to choose from on newsstands these days, and if you count all the Internet magazines related to gardening, there might even be hundreds of choices. Some are written primarily for the serious hobbyist and others are aimed at the casual gardener. Some are about gardening in general, while many are specialty publications or websites like organic gardening magazines and water gardening magazines.
General Gardening Magazines
General gardening magazines aren't hard to find. Fine Gardening is aimed at gardeners in general, with no specific type of garden or gardening as their focus. But all articles are written by expert gardeners, so you can be sure the information isn't recycled from another source, or second-hand.
Gardening How-To Magazine comes out bi-monthly to members of the Gardening How-To club, and isn't available on newsstands. If you're looking for no-nonsense step-by-step advice in a magazine that's like a hands-on gardening manual, consider joining. You'll enjoy more benefits than just the magazine, but the magazine alone is worth it.
Country Gardens is a specialty publication of Better Homes and Gardens aimed at – you guessed it – the country gardener who gardens chiefly for enjoyment and beauty. Horticulture is a good choice for the committed gardening enthusiast who wants to go beyond lovely pictures and landscape diagrams to get to the how and why of gardening. With a much more academic tone than a magazine like Country Gardens, Horticulture aims to convey detailed knowledge and information to readers who take their gardening very seriously.
Organic Gardening Magazines
The top of the organic gardening magazines seems to be Organic Gardening by Rodale. Each monthly issue is packed full of well-researched articles about how to garden organically while keeping it fun and fairly easy. This magazine has been published since its inception in 1942. Mother Earth News is a bi-monthly country lifestyle magazine that's focus isn't gardening, but very often it contains high-quality articles about organic gardening and the organic lifestyle.
Water Gardening Magazines
Water Gardening Magazine is a bi-monthly magazine aimed specifically at those who grow water gardens in their landscape ponds. Water Garden Journal is a quarterly journal filled with the same kind of information, all about how to help your water garden flourish, and is the official journal of the International Waterlily & Water Gardening Society.
Other Gardening Magazines
One of the best gardening magazines for those interested in hydroponics is Growing Edge. In-depth articles on indoor gardening and hydroponic gardening of all types, greenhouse growing and commercial growing are found in this bi-monthly magazine. And a magazine suitable for all outdoor gardeners is Garden Design. The articles often contain innovative ideas and information about what's new in gardening design as well as garden plants, making this one of the leading edge gardening magazines for those who like to stay on top of new developments.
