(Kansas City, Missouri)— The Wornall/Majors House Museums prides itself on presenting innovative, needed programs and services to the Kansas City community. However, occasionally programming traditions must end. Due to changes in the nature of how people shop for herbs and plants, the Wornall House will not be hosting it’s seasonal Herb & Wildflower Sale in 2018. The Herb & Wildflower Sale traditionally took place in April of each year.

However, gardening enthusiasts are encouraged to join the Museums for its 2018 Garden Tour. Attendees can support historic education and preservation efforts by touring some of the finest gardens Kansas City has to offer. This year, the tour features seven distinctive gardens in different beautiful and historic neighborhoods, including Crestwood and Hyde Park.

Attendees can also shop for native plants and wildflowers by stopping at the John Wornall House (6115 Wornall Rd.) the day of the tour to purchase plants from Missouri Wildflowers Nursery. Several members of the Master Gardeners of Greater Kansas City will also be present on site to visit with Garden Tour attendees.

 Tickets are $25 in advance, or $30 at the door. Information is available at www.wornallmajors.org/GardenTour2018
