What is the difference between My Garden and Sun Garden? What about My Garden Mix-N-Match?
Designed to co-ordinate with each other, it seems that all three patterns were introduced in 1999. Sun Garden has a solid yellow crackle band on the rim of the plate, while My Garden is predominantly white. My Garden Mix-N-Match adds a central decoration, and its most distinctive feature is a rope motif circling the centre of the plate.

Cups, saucers & bowls provided with Sun Garden are identical to those of My Garden, and do not have a yellow rim. It is uncertain whether a different platter was offered in Sun Garden; the My Garden platter was probably meant for both. Corning Ware cookware and accessories like cream & sugar sets were named after My Garden, but they suit Sun Garden equally well.

Both My Garden and Sun Garden were available as complete boxed sets, but My Garden Mix-N-Match seems to be just an open stock product, and the only piece might be the 7¼" side plate. It is not known whether dinner plates or luncheon plates exist in this pattern.

French White Corning Ware shapes also exist in My Garden, and they usually have Spring Green tinted clear Pyrex lids. Ordinary clear lids were provided for square Corning Ware.
