Arkansas April blooms with MG plant sales

Master Gardeners love to grow things, and the next best thing to that is sharing plants with others. The spring months show that exuberance with the plethora of plant sales around the state.

The plant sales general serve two goals: as a fundraiser for local programs and as an avenue to educate the general public about the MG program and gardening techniques.

So whether it’s a short ride or a longer road trip, you’re sure to find something for your garden or MG landscape project!
