Spring Garden Tour 2020
Our Spring Garden Tour 2020 was to feature five private gardens and three homes in beautiful Eastover and Massena Heights in Northeast Jackson.
Although our tour had to be canceled, we wanted to share these beautiful gardens with you.
The Secret Garden Shop
With the necessary cancellation of the tour, we are grateful that we can still raise funds for the revitalization and beautification of Greenwood Cemetary through our online Secret Garden Shop.
The shop is now closed. We thank you for your support.
GCJ wrapped up the fourth year of our Weed Wrangle project with the planting of 90 native plants in LeFleur's Bluff State Park. This project has been funded by the GCA Partners for Plants initiative the past three years, for a total of $5,000. The native plants were procured from the Huntsville Botanical Garden nursery and Hutto’s. Forty native azaleas both pink and yellow, Fringe tree, Possum haw (Ilex decidua), American holly (Ilex opeca), Beauty Berry, Sweetbay magnolia, Southern perennial hibiscus, Sweet shrub ‘Carolina Allspice’, and Mayhaw trees were planted in the park. This project has removed non-native invasive plants (Chinese tallow trees) and replaced with native plants that thrive in this area and are better for our animal and insect friends. A huge thank you to all who have helped with this over the past four years
