Dazzling Dahlias

Posted by Scott On August - 27 - 2010

The Fall 2010 issue of GardenMaking (the new launch by Beckie Fox and Michael Fox) hits shelves this week.
The third issue of the “reader-focused” gardening title is packed with inspirational advice, plant portraits, and breath-taking photography.
Look for retail promotions at Chapters/Indigo and Wal Mart.
Also note that on page 77, a full page ad gives gardening addicts a sneak preview on what issue #4 might look like.

  1. Paul Jones nails it when it comes to Church and State.

    When it comes to the covers and cover topics, we all need to work together as a team in order to maximize the newsstand sales of any magazine. “Sales” to the business side of magazine is equal to “Readership” on editorial. A great cover that maximizes newsstand sales will also influence our subscribers to pick it up off the coffee table and read it.
