    Default Is February actually January?

    bear with me - silly question alert

    February issue of GYO mag came out today - soooo my question is, is that actually covering what we should be doing in February or does it cover what we are/should be doing now, as in January jobs?

    On a silly question scale of 1 to 10 I'd give that 9&3/4 - but I'm really not sure

    I think the idea is to give you time to prepare. The advice in the Mag is actually for February - lots of publications do this. Also, you do need to take account of local conditions. What is right for where you live will certainly not apply to the North of Scotland, for example. Read, enjoy, and pick out the best bits that apply to you and your growing conditions.

    Hello Piskieinboots and happy new year to you and everybody else.....
    may I give a stupid answer to your question... I presume that all the magazines are prepared for release at least one month before, not to mention newspapers which are ready the day before, especially the weekend ones...in the early 1980 we could get sunday newspapers on saturday evening.....so really we were reading whatever happened before and nothing new.....on the brighter side regarding GYO we are reading whatever should happen in the near future and a bit of the past.... and if we grapevines really we like something almost new.....we have got this great forum!!!!
    Regards
    Don Vincenzo

    Just to let you know that Gardeners World Mag info relates to the Month that is printed on the cover and its the same month as its release. They made a big thing about it a year ago when they re-launched it.

    For Example the Feb issue out has info, advice etc... for the month of Feb. But as we all grow our own we would not be interested in this mag.

    I have a subscription for GW, and I love the fact that the advice given is for the month it comes out. I wish they'd all do that - as someone who grows in a northerly area, it can get very confusing when they're telling you in April to plant out stuff, which really means May, but up here is actually June...

    I'm a GW subscriber also, first time round it was bought as a Christmas present two years ago, I have kept it going ever since. Tis very different from GYO but then variety is the key to life, the universe and everything
