    Postponed to June 6, 2020


    Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Metro Master Gardeners have postponed their annual plant sale at Mynelle Gardens (4736 Clinton Boulevard, Jackson, MS 39209) from Saturday, April 25, 2020 to Saturday, June 6, 2020. The plant sale begins at 8:00 a.m. and will end at noon. 


    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 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, and various demonstration, educational and scholarship projects in the metro Jackson area. 


    If you need 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 For updates on the plant sale, please follow Metro Master Gardeners on Facebook.
