Southern Living 50th Anniversary Issue

If you haven’t heard yet, this is the 50th Anniversary of Southern Living Magazine, the one magazine that has kept the south together all these years, no matter where you move. Just wait until you pick up the SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION on newsstands now.

We are so humbled, yet happy to be included in this beautiful and exciting, keep-forever issue. They loved our container idea we used at our old house to keep privacy yet still be useful. However, to be included in the Best Southern Gardens…well that just took the cake!

Our property at Rockcastle River has always been open to the public (Monday-Saturday, CLOSED Sunday, April-December… please honor our hours for our privacy) since opening in 1955 and it gets better and better each year with new plantings for you to enjoy. It’s not funded by anyone but us, with no volunteers nor grants, so it is truly a labor of love.

Thanks, SOUTHERN LIVING, for including us in this monumental issue and here’s to another 50 great years!

“This special 50th Anniversary Issue is just full of everything you want and need to know about gardening in the south… the when, the what, the how of southern gardening. Plus, they have filled it with designs for everyone from formal to rustic to country to urban…it’s a real gift for any gardener.”
