Spring comes early to the Dixon!

The garden staff works diligently each fall/winter to plant as many bulbs as possible to guarantee a glorious spring showing of flowers and blooms throughout the Dixon property. Our garden staff are some of the hardest working people in Memphis and they control a lot of what you love about the Dixon!

Something the garden staff cannot control, however, is Mother Nature! She has a mind of her own! This year’s weather has been unpredictable and the Dixon gardens are sporting blooms sooner than we would have hoped.

So, spring has come a bit early this year, same as it did last year, but we aren’t fighting it! We are enjoying it! We want you to enjoy it too!

Daffodils, cabbages(yep, you read that right), and many more blooms have popped up around the Dixon, and we want you to see all of their spring glory – even if it isn’t quite spring!

Join us every Saturday morning and walk the gardens for free until noon. Tuesday is pay what you can day  – pay a donation and visit the gardens every Tuesday! Allow plenty of time to see the exhibitions too! Then mark your calendars for these upcoming garden events!
Reserve your spot at the Rose Seminar on March 10. Munch and learn with Michael Shadrack as he discusses Eight English Gardens at noon, March 14. Join us for Art After Dark March 15 as we Toast the Daffodils! Sign up for the Watercolor Workshop to paint “en plein” air in the gardens on March 16 and 17!

See our garden calendar for more garden events and come by to have an early taste of Spring!
