The 2019 Spring Fling Garden Show and Plant Sale has an impressive lineup of speakers for you to enjoy including Jason Reeve, Horticulturist and Curator of the UT Gardens in Jackson and UT-TSU Extension’s own Walter Battle and Lucas Holman.  Marty DeHart, host of “Volunteer Gardener” 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 30 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The Spring Fling 2019 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 some of their educational programs.  They will be more than happy to talk with you!  More information about this year’s Spring Fling can be found on our website, www.memphisareamastergardeners.org or give us a call at 901-752-1207.  We hope to see you there!
