UTIA Editorial Guide: Referring to the UT Gardens

Note: For all units, UT, rather than University of Tennessee, is acceptable on first reference when the full name of the university is apparent to the reader.

The UT Gardens has three locations: the UT Gardens, Knoxville; the UT Gardens, Jackson; and the UT Gardens, Crossville. Designated as the official State Botanical Garden of Tennessee, the collections are part of the UT Institute of Agriculture.

Capitalize Gardens when used as a second reference to the UT Gardens. To provide clarity to the reader when multiple sites are mentioned in the same context, the Knoxville Gardens, Crossville Gardens, and Jackson Gardens all are acceptable names on second reference.

The UT Gardens, Crossville, was previously known as the Plateau Discovery Garden. Take special care to note the previous name when needed for clarity.
