Gardeners know that fall is a great time to plant many hardy bulbs, perennials, shrubs and trees. Cooler temperatures mean that plants are less stressed as they are getting established (and that gardeners are less stressed when planting!) Less water is typically needed than when planting in spring or summer, so you have less maintenance involved. And, the plants are available to focus their energy on strong root growth rather than putting out foliage and blooms. This leads to a stronger plant the following year.

Come and shop our sale for some unique and cutting-edge plants for your garden. There will be a variety of edibles, hardy bulbs, perennials, shrubs and trees to choose from. You can view a list of the plants that will be available at the sale. Quantities may be limited, so shop early!

The public sale will be held from 9am - 2pm on Saturday, September 16 at the UT Gardens in Knoxville. Garden members can shop the preview sale on Friday, September 15 from 4 - 7pm. Memberships may be purchased or renewed during the preview sale or the public sale. In addition to having an early shopping opportunity, garden members receive 10% off their plant sale purchases during the preview or the public sale.


All sale proceeds will benefit the UT Gardens.​
