No. We don’t sell or share your email information with anyone else.


If it’s free, how do you make your money?

Our revenue source is from our advertisers. Click on any of the ads and you’ll go to that gardening business’s website to see everything they have to offer. Check out more local gardening businesses in our Gardening Directory.


My email address changed. How do I change my subscription?

Just send your new email address to me at and I’ll make the change.


Why should I subscribe? Can’t I just read the articles on the web site?

When you subscribe, every week you will receive an email telling you that there is new content. Subscribing is the best way to make sure you don’t miss anything. And it’s free! If you prefer to just read the articles on the website, that’s great too!


I don’t live in Western New York.  May I subscribe?

Of course! We know that tourists, residents of neighboring counties and states, our friends in Canada and former Western New York residents are interested in gardening, too. Our magazine, like Western New York itself, is too wonderful to try to keep to ourselves. If you enjoy our magazine, you are welcome to subscribe.

    I’m so sorry you had a problem. It should work from your iPad. I don’t see a problem at my end, so I’m not sure how to fix it. It may have been a temporary glitch. I appreciate you letting me know. In the meantime, I have subscribed you. Thanks!
