The 2016 Fall Flower and Garden Fest takes place on October 14th and 15th, in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. The festival, which focuses on “Healthy Living” and “Healthy Gardening” will fill the Truck Crops Experiment Station in Crystal Springs with flowers, people who love flowers, and ideas for bring more flowers into your life.
A 2-Day Soiree South of Jackson
Located just 25 miles south of Jackson, Crystal Springs is a great venue for vewing and talking about flowers. Folks who live in Jackson, and tourists to the area, have less than an half hour drive to get to what is the largest home gardening show in the Southeast. Previous Fall Flower and Garden Fests have seen an average attendance of 5,000 people over the course of the two-day event. There will be three acres of garden to explore and contests will be held for best vendor display, one will end with a lucky winner receiving an All-American Selections award.
The Fall Flower and Garden Fest will feature opportunities to visit three themed gardens: a vegetable garden, an herb and ethnic garden, and an herb bed garden. There will be a Truck Crops Experimentation Station, chances to learn how to grow greenhouse tomatoes, and people to talk to you about growing stunning plants for low-maintenance landscapes.
