The MMA Gardens Spring Plant Sale begins on Saturday morning, April 29, and is open to the public; however, Garden Circle Members are invited to a special preview event on Friday, April 28.
The event will include a preview of the plants plus a talk by Bob Brzuszek, ASLA, of Mississippi State University. Bob will discuss the attributes of Mid-South native plants, explain why they are essential to our area, and show how best to use them in garden designs. MMA garden staff will be on-site to answer questions and help Garden Circle Members pick the best plants for their home gardens, on sale during the event at a Members-only price.
