Some 2,000 customers who were stiffed last year by the sudden closure of Harrowsmith Country Life and who bought their subs through the Rogers subscription service are being sent Garden Making magazine for the balance of their term, according to a story in Mastheadonline.
"Garden Making is a relatively new but already award-winning quarterly magazine directed at Canadian gardeners. The magazine is published by Inspiring Media in Niagara-on-the-Lake, with Michael Fox, a senior vice president at Rogers Publishing, listed as publisher. However, Garden Making is independent and not affiliated with Rogers.
"The letter states subscribers will receive Garden Making for the duration of the Harrowsmith subscription they have already paid for. Following that, subscribers have the option to continue receiving Garden Making for $19.95 a year."
