Great! I'm up for a plant sale- can anyone come up with an address? I'm totally not familiar with Knoxville!

Racheff Gardens are located on Tennessee Avenue, off Western Avenue between I-640 and downtown. It's down in the old heavy industry area just north of downtown Knoxville, the last place you'd expect to find a public garden.
More info on the gardens at the website below.
Interesting history. The gardens were created by the founder of a steel mill who lived on the mill property and had them created at his house for his family and the workers. They are beautiful and worth the trip.

Neat! Is it a big sale, like one you should bring your own cart for?

It's a very small sale, but usually packed with very interesting plants -- especially natives. They have wagons available. Be sure to get there early!

I can't remember nearly all of the stuff I've bought there over the years, but a few that come to mind right now are Rosa palustris, dwarf blueberry, Corylopsis spicata and Corylopsis pauciflora, Western sand cherry, herbs, and many others.
