If you buy regional garden magazines you are probably reading about specific information for your planting zone.
I want to encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone and consider a regional magazine that doesn't have your city name on it.
Instead, focus on your garden zone and select a magazine that shares the same zone.
It may be in a different state, or a different country!
That's what I do!
