The UT Gardens fall plant sale promises to deliver a spectacular fall selection. The sale will be held this weekend starting with a preview sale Friday, September 18, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for all UT employees, garden volunteers and Friends of the Gardens members. The sale opens to the general public Saturday, September 19, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Selections will include Tennessee native plants, fall and winter interest plants, and winter container gardening plants. The sale will also feature blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, evergreens, assorted trees, shrubs and perennials. Garden art and outdoor garden ornaments will also be for sale.
Sue Hamilton says shoppers are assured of finding plenty of cutting edge, special plants that they won’t find just anywhere. “Fall is the ideal time for planting new additions to a garden. We’ll offer design inspiration with container displays and experts on hand to answer questions and offer advice.”
Round out the shopping experience with a self-guided tour of the gardens.
Visitors will be able to see plants that thrive and flourish in the Tennessee climate and get ideas on garden design and use in their own landscapes and gardens.
All proceeds will benefit the UT Gardens. The sale will be located at the UT Gardens.
