Canada Wide Media Ltd. Unveils BC Home & Garden Magazine

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 16, 2012) - Karen Foss, President, Canada Wide Media Ltd., is pleased to announce the repositioning of GardenWise magazine and BCHome magazine to create BC Home & Garden magazine, effective with the May/June issue.

"Combining the two magazines into one comprehensive product allows these products to evolve and respond to our readers' needs. We need to ensure both publications continue to be relevant to our audience of home-owners who are looking for ideas and inspiration to enhance the inside and outside of their homes," explains Foss.

Publisher Samantha Legge adds that, "BC Home & Garden magazine's mandate is to inspire its high-income, well-educated readers with the latest in design trends, furnishings, style advice, garden and landscape ideas."

The circulation will remain at 35,000 and be distributed to 18,000 engaged, paid subscribers, as well as select retail and garden centre newsstand outlets and premiere showrooms throughout B.C., reaching homeowners who are currently engaged in making improvements to their homes and gardens.

Readers will still find gardening tips from Sharon Hanna on what to do in the garden every month; wise and witty Earthwords by Des Kennedy; native-plant insights by Richard Hebda; Zero-Mile recipes and tips by Carolyn Herriot; and plant advice from Conway Lum, Wim Vander Zalm, Sheena Adams, Christina Symons, and horticultural editor Carolyn Jones.

BC Home & Garden magazine is available for subscription by calling 1-800-663-0518. The one-year rate is $19.95 plus GST for six issues. It is also available at newsstands and garden retail outlets.
