What's different is that Met Home seemed robust and full of good work up until it disappeared. Garden Design has been through an odyssey that diminished it - moving headquarters to Florida, turning into more of a garden decorating and industry publication than a mag for home gardeners - but, still, it was beautiful and there's not much else out there.
April will be the last issue of Garden Design. It's parent company Bonnier explains the obvious "The economic climate, compounded by the significan industry transition to digital, have limited the growth in advertising needed to make this brand viable for our future."
Did anyone else see the recent Sixty Minutes where they began a piece on the New York Times with the fateful words "Newspapers are an industry in free-fall"? Unfortunately, that applies to print-on-paper all too widely.......RIP Garden Design, we'll miss you.
