Seen a great garden lately? Maybe it's your Mom's. Maybe it's your neighbor's. Maybe it's right in your own back yard.

Wherever it's located, it's time to share its beauty with others by nominating it in our annual Beautiful Gardens contest. Every year, Home + Garden seeks out the best private, residential gardens, then publishes the winners throughout the non-gardening season. Each winning garden will be displayed on the cover of the Home + Garden section and online at startribune.com.

So help your favorite gardener get the glory he or she deserves. It's easy to nominate. Just send a few snapshots of the garden, along with a brief description, including who tends the garden, where it's located and what makes it special.

We'll be accepting entries through June 18, 2012. Send entries to: Beautiful Gardens, Star Tribune, 425 Portland Av. S., Minneapolis, MN 55488. Or e-mail them to beautifulgardens@startribune.com.
