Time to Garden

The Spring 2019 issue of Harrowsmith is now ready to print, and scheduled to hit newsstands on March 4th, 2019.

Art Director Meredith Mackinley has created another winning cover.

Harrowsmith is on a roll.  Last year’s Spring issue was up 24% from prior year in units sold.  Plus:  because we raised the cover price to $6.99, revenue was up 45%!  That follows revenue gains of 11% in 2017, and of 22% in 2016 on our Spring issues!

Great covers, and great content, packaged beautifully can do that.
