Seasons of Change

With the July/August issue of Washington Gardener Magazine, we will be moving to a quarterly publishing schedule. You will note that it is renamed the Summer 2009 issue. Since March/April 2005, we have been published bimonthly (six times a year). It has been a struggle to keep up with the five postage increases and high printing/paper costs during this period. We have looked carefully at alternatives and believe this is the best choice for keep the magazine alive and healthy. In the future, we may revert back to our bimonthly schedule or issue a bonus issue. We will continue to keep you, our loyal readers, updated with any further changes.


If you are currently subscribed, we will honor the same number of issues for which you paid. So that if you still have three issues left in your subscription, we will extend you through to next spring and so on. If you have any questions about your subscription status, please do not hesitate to contact me at (301) 588-6894 or washingtongardener (at) rcn.com.


Our quarterly print issues will be supplemented with a relaunched and expanded Washington Gardener Enewsletter. The monthly enewsletter includes local garden event listings, garden to-do lists, new plant introductions, and much more.

In addition to the print magazine and enewsletter, we continue to bring our readers together through our online discussion group, blog, and twitter feed. To learn more about these online resources, please visit http://www.washingtongardener.com/.


Finally, we encourage to enter our annual Garden Photo Contest. We hope to see you in-person at one of our many events including our annual Seed Exchange in January, Philadelphia Flower Show trip in March, Plant Swap in June, Tomato Tasting in August, and at our free monthly garden talks hosted at the Historic Society of Washington.
