UT Arboretum Society Fall Plant Sale

The Forest Resources Research & Education Center
Oak Ridge
Saturday, October 11, 2014
9 am - 3 pm

Fall is the ideal time to add plants to the landscape, so gardening enthusiasts and those wishing to add to their landscape are invited to attend the UT Arboretum Society’s Fall Plant Sale, Saturday, October 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Ave. in Oak Ridge.

Milder temperatures, more dependable rainfall, and the fact that plants are devoting all their resources to developing a stronger root system, will all combine to give new plants a head start in the spring and a much better survival rate.

The sale will feature high quality plants from Beaver Creek Nursery, East Fork Nursery, Riverdale Nursery, Sunlight Gardens, as well as the UT Arboretum Society’s members and friends. Will Witte, the Society’s “Answer Man,” will be there to answer all of your plant questions. Dano’s Hot Dogs will have his popular dogs and lemonade.

New this fall is Brad Greenwood, a copper and blacksmithing artisan from Clinton, with his unique, botanically-themed home and garden treasures.

Proceeds from the plant sale and other UT Arboretum Society events go to support and secure the future of the UT Arboretum in Oak Ridge.


Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to the public.
