"This is by far THE BEST nursery in Knoxville! I've bought plants from all the typical discount places, variety stores, grocery stores and "hardware" stores, but no one can beat Thress' plants. Their garden shop has really unique gifts and varieties that you won't find anywhere else. It's worth the few extra miles you may drive!"

"This family business is a wonderful place to buy flowers and such for landscaping. A great family of people who know what they are talking about. They carry everything and their nursery is very nice. I love the way they make things look. Their staff is wonderful and a great family feeling is there. They have great prices and I highly recommend them to anyone. We will be giving return business for sure!"

"We visited Thress Nursery Gardens this past summer after moving into our new house. Needless to say, we needed lots of landscaping material and they had a great selection. The staff was so friendly and helped us make great decisions for our new back yard!"
