“Green Prints:” Another Garden Magazine

HerbDoc has discovered another garden mag:

About two months ago I came across a reply card in one of my herbal magazines, urging me to try a publication called “Green Prints, the Weeder’s Digest”.  Intrigued I put the card in the mail.

This small magazine is published four times a year and is full of charming stories illustrated with black and white art work.  It has been in existence for almost two decades now, but this was my first experience with it.

The stories range from humorous to heartwarming, and a good dose of gardening information is sprinkled throughout.  I was delighted with my first issue and a “special issue” containing sixteen of the editor’s favorite stories.

Each one can be read in ten or fifteen minutes, and I found it to be great way to relax with a cup of tea after spending the afternoon in the garden.

    Sort of a Chicken Soup for the Gardener’s Soul, right?

    Definitely, and here and there are some truly embarrassing situations that gardeners have put themselves in! My favorite is about a guy who planted azaleas which grew and bloomed prolifically for a couple of years and then appeared to stop growing. He added everything he could think of to make the poor things grow, and they finally just up and died. When he decided to pull them all out and replace them with something else, he found a tag on one that said “Dwarf Azalea”. Oh my!
