time for a makeover! T

his issue introduces our new masthead and a new look for Ontario Gardener. It’s about time for a makeover and we are thrilled to use it to mark our 80th issue.

And did you notice? We are back to being just plain Ontario Gardener, cele-

brating our garden roots, and being all about plants, gardens and our passion for growing things. I have already introduced you to Tania Moffat, our new editor. Drop her a

line ( and tell her how she is doing. I know you are going to love her! In case you are wondering, I will still be here, thinking and writing, support-

ing Tania and answering your questions. Happy gardening!


Going back to our roots


hange is good; over time our opinions change, our looks change but deep down our roots remain the same. They are the core of who we are, they give us life. They are the basis of our beings.

Over the years, Ontario Gardener has continued to evolve along with our read-

ership. Our roots, however, have always remained in the garden. We are garden- ers; a group of people who love to spend time digging in the dirt, watching plants grow, sharing our expertise and rejoicing in the beauty created by others. That's why this spring we are returning to our roots, reborn once again as

Ontario Gardener. Why? Because at our core this is who we are and what you, our readers, have asked for. You may have already noticed new features and writers contributing to our

publication. In addition to bringing you features on local gardens, and expert advice, we will be providing increased focus on upcoming gardening events and local club information. Each issue will share our picks for great gardening products, show you how to get the kids or grandkids involved, provide you with great recipes for the foods that you grow, and keep you informed on all of the latest trends. We continue to invite you to share your comments, queries, photos or recipes.

We are always happy to hear from our readers. We grow because of you. If you want to learn more about us please follow us on Twitter and Facebook,
