Nursery at the Garden

Saturdays in May
8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.

Good news for all Mid-South gardeners! Our new volunteer-run nursery will be open on Saturday mornings in May, offering many of the same plants available at our Spring Plant Sale. Through the season, keep an eye out for one-day Super Sales, as we reduce inventory for summer. The Nursery at the Garden is now a year-round production nursery that focuses on herbs, perennials, flowering shrubs and plants that will draw birds, butterflies, and bees to your garden.

The vast majority of plants are potted by our volunteers, and all are grown with the loving care of a plant enthusiast. You’ll find hundreds of varieties of perennials, the largest selection of herbs in the Mid-South, many new varieties of shrubs and much, much more. Every dollar you spend helps support the horticulture department and maintain this wonderful Garden.

Entry is free to Garden members or with paid Garden admission. Garden members receive 10% off all purchases, and our volunteers can earn huge discounts upon fulfilling their hours.

Growers' Choice Fall Plant Sale: October 7  9am-4pm

The Fall Plant Sale will be a one-day opportunity for you to shop from a variety of plants, trees, shrubs and edibles propagated in our own nursery and greenhouse. These selections are ideal for our regional growing conditions, and are grown for their hardiness, adaptability, and unique characteristics.

We will also offer a limited selection of colorful annuals to add that pop to your home landscape and container plantings.

Expert staff and volunteers will answer your questions and offer care and growing tips.
Admission is free.

Spring's Best Plant Sale: 2018 Date TBD

Year after year, plant nerds, couch potatoes, novice and expert gardeners flock to the Garden's Spring Plant Sale. It is THE EVENT that every greenthumb (and not so greenthumb) looks forward to each spring.

We are proud to offer perennials, annuals, tropicals, trees and shrubs. You'll shop from a vast selection of plants grown in our own greenhouses, so you can be sure that they are healthy and suitable for our Mid-South growing conditions.

As always, we’ll have local artisans with specialty garden items and gifts, talks by local gardening experts, and our horticulture staff and Tennessee Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions and help you make plant selections.
