Feedback from Our Readers: Spring 2017

Humbled by both the praise and advice from our valued readers, we want to share some feedback we’ve received.

  • This bouquet says "thank you" in flowers to a one-of-a-kind friend. Grape hyacinths convey the message of usefulness, tulips stand for compassion and sweet virtues, and scented geraniums mean comfort.

  • Chamomile blooms convey comfort and patience in the traditional language of flowers.

Mobile Convenience

The Almanac department is wonderful. I have found that having it in the garden on my phone is so handy. I never would have guessed how handy it actually is! -Cynthia Rand-Thompson: Watsonville, California

Great news, Cynthia: It’s now easier than ever to access the Almanac — and all other Heirloom Gardener articles — on your phone with our new digital issue! Look for it in Apple’s app store and the Google Play store.

Timeless Interest

I have pretty much every issue of Heirloom Gardener that has been published since 2008. I like the articles that have history with them, such as “The Language of Flowers” (Fall 2016). I’ve saved them all because, while I may not be interested in some article or another at the time I receive the magazine, I may pick that same magazine up another time to find that article fascinating, or find something I missed the first time reading. Thanks so much for this marvelous magazine. Keep up the great work. -Survey Comment
