What does your dream Southern garden look like? Is it covered in Mandevilla plants and Black-Eyed Susans? Do climbing roses crawl up a wooden swing set? Are you surveying it all while sitting under the shade of magnolia tree and sipping a cool glass of sweet tea? At Southern Living, we believe there’s not one particular style that defines a great southern garden; city or country, modern or traditional, formal or casual—we love them all.

We’ve pulled together the best of everything—iconic Southern plants, residential garden design, great containers, and even a roundup of the South’s best garden tours in Best Southern Gardens. This special edition features 223 ideas for containers, beds and borders. When we recommend a certain plant or technique, you can bet it’s because the editors have tried it at home themselves; the information and advice coming from the garden department is first-hand, accurate, and reliable. Acquire a green thumb with our guide on how to grow hydrangeas, azaleas, roses and more. Our container section will teach you how to grow a garden under a glass, create easy pots of color, and fix a magical hanging basket. Check out our “Essential Gardener’s Checklist” for a monthly to-do list organized by season for the ultimate guide to keeping your garden looking great all year long. Finally, have a laugh at our “Bless Our Hearts!” section where we feature chuckle-worthy blunders from our past gardening issues.
