What We’re All About

We provide our readers with the ideas, information, resources, inspiration and sense of humor needed to grow ornamental and edible plants successfully in our fast changing, unpredictable climate. We emphasize waterwise and environmentally sound practices.

We publish an Education Issue at the beginning of February, plus four issues at the beginning of April, May, June and toward the end of August.

Editorial Profile

Colorado Gardener is an independently-owned, creatively designed tabloid-size gardening newsmagazine. Packed with practical information, resources and engaging features on local flora and fauna, gardens and gardeners, it provides readers with the ideas, information, encouragement, and resources they need to grow perennials, annuals, bulbs, vegetables, herbs, shrubs and trees in our fast changing, unpredictable climate. We emphasize environmentally sound and waterwise practices, and let our readers know where they can find the plants, tools, supplies, and services they need – locally.

Many of our writers are prominent horticulturists and award-winning garden authors.
