METRO MASTER GARDENERS’ ANNUAL PLANT SALE


METRO MASTER GARDENERS’ ANNUAL PLANT SALE

The Metro Master Gardeners will hold their annual plant sale at Mynelle Gardens (4736 Clinton Boulevard, Jackson, MS 39209) on Saturday, April 27, 2024. The plant sale begins at 8:00 a.m. and will end at noon. Cash and checks are welcome (no credit cards).

 

Members of the Metro Master Gardeners come from all over the Jackson metropolitan area.  The Master Gardeners have propagated a 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. Due to the last 12-15 months of extreme weather, the quantity and variety of plants may be more limited than in previous years. 

 

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 free stroll through Mynelle Gardens.

 

Proceeds from the plant sale go to support gardening projects located at Mynelle Gardens, the Doctor’s Herb Garden at the Agriculture & Forestry Museum, the Oaks Home on Jefferson Street, Greenwood Cemetery, Clinton Visitors Center, and various demonstration, educational and scholarship projects in the metro Jackson area.

 

If you want additional information, would like to schedule an interview with Master Gardeners, or capture them in action at Mynelle Gardens, please contact Laura Lillard at 601-613-5223 or sadiecat17@comcast.net. “Like” Metro Master Gardeners on Facebook for updates.
