If you want to buy plants to enhance your garden this spring, but want to avoid crowds, visit the UT Arboretum Society’s Annual ONLINE Spring Plant Sale which will be open from March 19th to April 3rd with pickup dates April 9th and 10th at the UT Arboretum. Our plant sales are some of our biggest fundraisers of the year and help support the Arboretum’s community education, trail improvements such as our Nature Book Trail, and children’s programs.
At checkout you will choose a pickup day/time option for either Friday, April 9th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. or Saturday, April 10th, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge. You must schedule a pick-up time on these two dates. The website may offer other dates, but please choose April 9 or April 10. Arboretum Society members will have your plant orders ready for pick-up. This is a no contact pick-up system. When you arrive at your scheduled time, you will come to designated pick up spots and your order will be brought to your car. Please contact UT Arboretum Education Coordinator, Michelle Campanis, for questions or issues with your order at firstname.lastname@example.org
