HH Garden Club to host plant sale

Nick Della VolpeEast Knox, Our Town Outdoors

The Holston Hills Garden Club plant sale is back! The sale will be this Saturday, May 6, from 9 am to 2 pm, at the Community Park located on the corner of Chilhowee Drive and Holston Hills Road, just opposite the Holston Hills golf course.

We know those green thumbs of yours have been twitching, now that the threat of frost has passed. So, come to Holston Hills and examine the wide variety of flowers and plants, garden accents and white elephant wonders, seeking a new home. Stop by and enjoy coffee and home-baked goodies – something to please the whole family – as you peruse the plantings and colorful grounds of the park, and meet some of our gracious volunteer hosts.

The event will include information about gardening from our knowledgeable members and local tree guru, Terry Raby, whose Knoxville-based Airtech Tools business supplies garden tools that reduce labor and assist in planting and nurturing tree health.

Parking is available on the side roads adjoining the park.

The garden club was formed back in 1937. It plans to use funds generated by the annual sale to improve the park as well as neighborhood pillars and monuments. Bring the whole family and enjoy the outdoor fun.

Nick Della Volpe is a lawyer, a gardener and a former member of Knoxville City Council.
