SHOPS Where the Wild Things Grow

As summer tapers into fall, gardeners know it’s time to plan and plant again, and the South’s bountiful nurseries stand ready to help. While most of these seven exceptional shops will ship a pot of their heirloom roses or tea camellias, a visit in person can mean wandering among fall-blooming azaleas, discovering a native plant that butterflies love, or saying hello to a blossom-eating tortoise. And you’ll probably pick up some green-thumbed wisdom, too. “Putting roots in the ground when it cools down gives a plant the chance to get established, to develop before new growth,” says Jason Powell of Petals from the Past, in Jemison, Alabama. “The life lessons we need are right here in our gardens.”
