Gardening by Region

Gardening in the Southwest is very different from gardening in the Midwest, Mountain West, Northeast, South, Northwest, or even Southern California. What works for one state -- or even for one county -- may not work elsewhere. We've taken the work out of it with a region-by-region guide to achieving garden success. The first step is to understand your USDA Hardiness Zone: Guides and maps will help you find your magic number and learn more about what's typical for your region. Use the Zone map to pick the best plants for your region. Other helpful information includes a guide to fuss-free plants; top wildflowers and roses by region; and great vegetables, herbs, and perennials for wherever you live and garden. The one thing that virtually every gardener in every state in the country needs help with is deer: Go here to find plants that deer don't like to eat in your region. Public gardens are a great source of inspiration; you'll easily locate your nearest public garden with our Garden Locator. In addition, take the worry out of how to care for your garden with a month-by-month collection of gardening tips by region.
