KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Everyone is invited to learn from University of Tennessee Gardens experts about some of the most beautiful evergreen trees and shrubs available and how best to use them in your landscape. The event is indoors, Sunday, November 15, 2015, at the University of Tennessee Brehm Animal Science Arena at 2506 River Drive on the UT agricultural campus. This is near the UT Gardens, Knoxville.

Visitors are invited to attend a free lecture by UT plant science faculty members Sue Hamilton and Andy Pulte from 1:30 - 3 p.m., to be followed by a conifer sale from 3 – 5 p.m.
