The UT Gardens, Crossville, part of the State Botanical Garden of Tennessee, is located at the UT Plateau AgResearch and Education Center. The Gardens are open throughout the year during daylight hours and is free to the public.
This parcel of land beside the Center’s main building has grown from its beginnings as the Plateau Discovery Gardens to become a demonstration garden designed for visitors and residents of the Plateau. It is a collaborative effort of the Plateau AgResearch and Education Center, UT Extension Cumberland County, and the Cumberland County Master Gardeners.
