New Gardening Publication Launches in the Triangle

Raleigh, NC Starting in April, Triangle gardeners will have something new to read.

Triangle Gardener™, a local guide to enjoyable gardening, is a free bi-monthly newspaper that will be available in the Triangle region starting with the April/May issue.

The inaugural issue features gardening stories specific to the Triangle growing season and climate. Among the topics in the April/May issue are stories on rain gardens, vegetable gardening, invasive plants, roses, fire ants, and a top 10 list of plants for this year’s garden. Each issue also features news from the gardening community, a two-month calendar of garden events and tours, and a garden maintenance calendar.

The stories are written by gardening professionals, county extension agents, horticulturists, and others who are experts on gardening in the Triangle.

The publication will be available free of charge at local garden centers, garden specialty stores, arboretum/botanical gardens, bookstores, coffee shops, and more throughout the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area and surrounding communities. A complete list of distribution spots will be available on http://www.trianglegardener.com.

The publisher and editor of Triangle Gardener is Beverly Hurley, a Triangle resident who has a background in garden scouting and writing, marketing and public relations. She started Triangle Gardener as a way to bring the variety of gardening information available at multiple sources into one resource publication that gardeners can keep and refer to throughout the gardening season.

She is also a member of the Garden Writers Association, which will hold its 2009 convention in Raleigh this September.

To kick off the first issue, Triangle Gardener is a sponsor of the upcoming Southern Ideal Home Show, April 3-5, at the State Fairgrounds. Show attendees can stop by the Triangle Gardener booth in Dorton Arena, pick up a copy of the free newspaper and ask gardening questions of volunteers from various Triangle area plant societies, along with experts from the JC Raulston Arboretum, North Carolina Botanical Garden, and the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.

For more information on this new publication, contact 919-926-7501.

    I wish them the best of luck. At a time when gardening publications and the gardening sections of most newspapers are in contraction — to start a new effort is very brave. Hopefully they are ahead of a new curve.

    I have tried unsuccessfully to find the order form for Triangle Gardener that according to a free June/July/August 2009 copy is online-“simply fill it out and mail $12 for one year’s subscription.

    Please advise as I really enjoyed this paper. I got the copy recently at Witherspoon Rose Gallery.

  6. The subscription to Triangle Gardener is $12 for six issues. This covers the postage and handling to mail the free publication to you. Just click on “Subscriptions” on the Triangle Gardener home page (www.trianglegardener.com) to download the form.

    Or you can just send a check and a note with your name/address/phone/email to:
    P.O. Box 91132
    Raleigh, NC 27675

    Triangle Gardener is launching an e-newsletter with garden news and advertiser discounts/specials. Sign up at http://www.trianglegardener.com.

    Hope you are enjoying your time in the garden.
