The University of Tennessee Arboretum Society’s Fall Plant Sale will be held Saturday at the UT Arboretum in Oak Ridge.
The sale is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, October 19, at the UT Arboretum, which is at 901 South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.
“Fall is the ideal time to add plants to your landscape because of milder temperatures and more dependable rainfall,” a press release said. “In addition, the fact that plants are not putting energy into their top growth but devoting all their resources to developing a strong root system will give them a head start in the spring and a much better survival rate.”
East Fork Nursery, Riverdale Nursery, and Tennessee Naturescapes, as well as the UT Arboretum Society, will be offering quality plants at this sale, the press release said. Cash, checks, and credit cards will be accepted for payment.
Dr. Will Witte, the Society’s “Answer Man,” will be there to answer all of your plant questions, the press release said. For refreshments, Dano’s Hot Dogs will be back with his popular dogs, burgers, and lemonade.
Proceeds from this sale and other Society events go to support and secure the future of the University of Tennessee Arboretum in Oak Ridge, the press release said. To learn more about this sale or the UT Arboretum Society, go to www.utarboretumsociety.org or call (865) 483-7277.
