Plant lovers, save the date for the annual Metro Master Gardeners’ Plant Sale!
The sale will be held Saturday, April 22 at Mynelle Gardens, from 8 a.m. until noon.
Each year, members of the Metro Master Gardeners come from all over the Jackson metropolitan area. The Master Gardeners have propagated a wide variety of native and naturalized heirloom plants, perennials, shrubs and trees that are perfectly suited to our southern soils and climate. Many of these heirloom plants have come from project and demonstration gardens located throughout the metro Jackson area. Shoppers will find a wide variety of plants at unbeatable prices!
Master Gardeners are a volunteer branch of the Mississippi State University Extension Service that advises and educates the public on gardening and horticulture issues. Members of the Metro Master Gardeners will be on hand at the plant sale to answer gardening questions.
After finalizing their plant purchases, shoppers are invited to enjoy a leisurely stroll through Mynelle Gardens.
Proceeds from the plant sale go to support gardening projects located at the Doctor’s Herb Garden at the Agriculture & Forestry Museum, the Oaks Home on Jefferson Street, Greenwood Cemetery, the Jackson Zoo, and various demonstration, educational and scholarship projects (including a Hinds Community College scholarship) in the metro Jackson area.
