March is officially here! I am excited about the Spring Fling 2018 Garden Show and Plant Sale sponsored by the Memphis Area Master Gardeners! This year's theme is "Plant Power". Join us on Friday and Saturday, March 23rd & 24th, from 9 am - 5 pm at the Farmers Market Big Red Barn at the Agricenter. Admission and parking are free.
The 2018 Spring Fling Garden Show and Plant Sale has an impressive lineup of speakers for you to enjoy, including Dale Skaggs Director of Horticulture at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens and UT Extensions own Carol Reese and Jason Reeves. Chris Olsen, a nationally known home and garden guru, landscape designer, author and television personality will also be there along with several local speakers. Demonstrations will be a big part of this event as well. There will also be activities for the entire family. Children will enjoy participating in Kid's Corner activities on Saturday, March 24th, from 9 am - 5 pm.
The Spring Fling 2018 Garden Show and Plant Sale will highlight over 45 vendors offering unique plants, artisanal crafts, accessories and garden-related items for sale. Gardeners will be unable to resist the unique finds and bargains at our Master Gardener Plant Sale with more than 2,000 plants.
Memphis Area Master Gardeners will also be on hand to answer your gardening questions at our "Ask a Master Gardener" booth.
We will also be celebrating Extension Month! March has been designated as Extension Month here in Tennessee. Stop by and visit with the Shelby County Extension staff and hear about their educational programs. They will be more than happy to assist you!
