The SCNPS Fall Plant Sale is just around the corner and we could not be more excited — we’ll be bringing you some of the best plants in the Upstate, so that your gardens can continue to grow and support the ecosystem that you love! This year we are returning to our roots, focusing on bringing you the best species for supporting native wildlife. We are turning back the clock on cultivars and searching out selections of plants with the wide genetic diversity that nature intended.
We are very excited to continue to offer credit card purchasing in addition to cash and checks. As always we will have a great selection of perennials, flowering shrubs, vines, grasses and edibles. This year we will also have a very nice selection of native trees that both support wildlife and provide fruits for the humans that frequent your garden as well. We will have North America’s potassium source, the Paw Paw, as well as exciting nut trees like the American Filbert and Black Walnut. Our grass selection will be as good as ever with plants grown from SCNPS seed collection trips over the past Spring and Fall. These grasses are as native as you can get and will be great hosts for butterflies and skippers.
We also have many volunteer opportunities including publicity, plant staging and labeling among many others roles so be sure to sign up early at our monthly lectures, or email our volunteer coordinator, Lynn Davis, at firstname.lastname@example.org. — Ryan Merck
