The Mandarin Garden Club is hosting their annual Garden Festival & Plant Sale on Saturday, April 26th from 8:00 – 2:00 at 2892 Loretto Road. Admission is free and additional parking is available next door at the Masonic Lodge.
This is the place to get reasonably priced pass-along plants such as annuals, antique roses, butterfly garden plants, native plants, ornamental grasses, shrubs, trees, perennials, succulents and cacti.
Many garden-related vendors will be on hand to offer garden art, handmade herbal soap, unique recycled denim creations, glass totem garden sculptures, and life-like hand carved birds. Of course, Jacksonville’s own herbal expert, Linda Cunningham, will also be there with herbs for your herb garden.
You might also want to snag a copy of the 65th Anniversary Mandarin Garden Club Cookbook while you visit their booth.
Best of all, a slew of experts will be on hand to answer all your garden questions — the Duval County Master Gardeners — who will be easy to spot with their blue cord necklaces and name tags.
Please take time to tour the garden club grounds behind the clubhouse. See what the Mandarin Club Gardeners have lovingly created: a butterfly garden, an herb garden, perennial garden, veggie garden, bromeliad garden, native plant garden, ornamental grass garden, and the children’s Bumblebee Circle Garden. Sit a spell on one of the many garden benches and breathe it all in.
A barbecue lunch will be available for purchase, along with delectable homemade sweets made by garden club members. Coffee and water will be available at no charge inside the building.
