Specialty Plants Available While Supplies Last
JACKSON, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee Gardens, Jackson, is hosting their annual amaryllis sale on November 16 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the West Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center.
Shipped from Holland, over 650 bulbs across 25 varieties can be purchased for your home or to be given as gifts this holiday season. Terracotta pots, potting soil and plants from the fall plant sale such as conifers and spider lilies will also be available.
“Amaryllis are a rewarding, brightly blooming flower that are often planted indoors during the winter,” says Jason Reeves, research associate and curator of UT Gardens, Jackson. “We have everything you need to get started growing these remarkable plants, including soil, containers and even an info card with instructions for taking care of your newly acquired selections.”
