The big event in Jackson takes place today, so get to the airport and fly in to Memphis and get over to Jackson before the day is over.

Memphis-area gardeners… flock to Summer Celebration at the University of Tennessee’s West Tennessee Research and Education Center to hear speakers, see tough plants that thrive in the heat and buy a few to take home.
