KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Dogwood Arts is encouraging Knoxville to take part again in the community-wide dogwood tree planting day on Saturday, December 3, as part of the Bazillion Blooms program.
Dogwoods Arts asks people to keep their neighborhoods and communities beautiful by not only planting dogwood trees, but flowering trees and shrubs, bulbs and perennials during the fall gardening season.
Disease-resistant dogwood trees are available for purchase by visiting http://www.dogwoodarts.com or calling (865) 637-4561 for $25 each or five for $100 through November 18.
Trees must be picked up on Saturday, December 3, from 9 a.m. to noon at the UT Gardens off Neyland Drive. They will not be distributed at any other time.
Larger blooming trees, as well as other flowering shrubs, bulbs, and perennials will be available for purchase at participating Bazillion Blooms garden centers this fall:
