A sad day for country gardeners

I’m genuinely sad to discover that the Country Gardener series of magazines is folding after the April issue due to a combination of falling advertising revenues and a rise in production costs. If you’re not familiar with the titles, they are the newspaper style magazines that you could pick up free in gardens, garden centres or tourist information centres. Launching in 1997 with the Devon Country Gardener, other titles included Somerset Country Gardener and the Cotswold Country Gardener. I was a subscriber to the Cornwall Country Gardener. Not that I’m from the county, but I do like to visit and whenever the title fell onto my doormat it put me in holiday mode. For just £5 a year this title gave me a lot more enjoyment than some magazines that cost almost this much for a single issue each month.
