Upstate Fall Plant Sale

Posted on |

The Upstate FAll PLANT SALE will be held October 14 and 15, 9am to 2pm each day.  This year, the Fall Sale will help kick off the first ever statewide Native Plant Week!  We will have the Fall Sale at the greenhouse/nursery located at Kitty and Miller Putnam’s house over the 14-15 weekend, followed by Native Plant Week, Oct. 16 – 20.

Fall is the very best time to plant.  More plants put in in the fall reach their second year than do plants planted in the Spring.  The Greenhouse committee has been working hard all summer refilling our inventory for the Fall Sale.  To download a PDF listing the plant inventory that will be available, click here.

The greenhouse is at a private home where parking is limited.  Please carpool if possible.

There will be a wide selection of trees, shrubs, vines, native wildflowers and some ferns and grasses.  You may pay by check, cash, or credit card.

The greenhouse is at 180 Lakewood Drive, Greenville 29607.  From I-85, get off at Mauldin Road, exit 46 (exit for So. Carolina 291/Pleasantburg Dr., Mauldin Rd.)  Mauldin is actually exit 46C.  Go south on Mauldin Rd. for 3.0 miles.   Once you pass Conestee park sport complex on the right (where we hold the spring plant sales) and Conestee Lake Road on the right, look for Lakewood Dr (small street only on right) Turn right on Lakewood.  (If you miss it, go to next street/stop light which is Conestee Rd. and turn right.  That will bring you back to Lakewood)  On Lakewood go 0.4 miles to 180 on the right.

The mail box numbering jumps a little and is not easy to see.  Putnams have dual mail boxes and a split driveway.  There is a sign for Native Plant Society Greenhouse attached to the mail box posts.  There is a pond visible from the road.  We usually go in the right hand drive around the pond and come out the opposite driveway.   Parking will be tight.  Look for a parking volunteer to help you find a spot.

IN ADDITION TO THE FALL SALE
In September we are repeating the “Online Pre-Sale” that was very popular after the Spring Sale, where we ran out of Azaleas the first hour!   In this special “pre-sale” you can order shrubs, mostly azaleas, pay for them on Pay Pal.  If you place a pre-sale order by October 6, we can guarantee that the plants you want will be waiting for you. Pre-ordered plants will be available for you to pick up at the Fall Sale  (14-15 October) and several subsequent pickup days.  If you would like a list of the pre-sale shrubs and trees available, email or call Miller Putnam at 864 325 9700 or [email protected]  Orders for the pre-sale must be placed by OCT. 6.

Upstate: FALL GREENHOUSE NATIVE PLANT SALE

Posted on |

The Upstate chapter’s FALL GREENHOUSE SALE is set for Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1 from 9 am – 3 pm each day.  A wide variety of native perennial wildflowers, vines, grasses, shrubs, and trees will be available at discounts of 10%-30%.

Native plants are a good option for homeowners wishing to create more sustainable, wildlife-friendly landscapes.  Native plants are those that originated or evolved within a region over thousands of years and are well-adapted to the local climate and soil conditions. Wildlife, including pollinating insects, butterflies, and birds, are adapted to native plants. Research indicates even a modest increase in native plant cover significantly increases the number and species of breeding birds.

Fall is the best time to plant your new perennials, trees, and shrubs. Without the stress of summer heat and drought, plants can more easily become established in your landscape.  Plant roots will continue to grow throughout the long cool fall and winter even after plant foliage goes dormant.

The sale takes place at Miller and Kitty Putnam’s greenhouse, just a mile from Conestee Park. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.   Parking is limited at the greenhouse.  Please carpool if possible. For further information, call Miller Putnam at 864 325-9700.

Directions to Miller and Kitty Putnam’s home:

Miller and Kitty Putnam’s home is at 180 Lakewood Drive, Greenville 29607.  From I-85, get off at Mauldin Road, exit 46 (exit for SC 291/Pleasantburg Dr., Mauldin Rd.)  Mauldin is actually exit 46C.  Go south (turn left) on Mauldin Rd. for 3.0 miles.   Once you pass Conestee Park sport complex on the right and Conestee Lake Road on the right, look for Lakewood Dr (small street only on right). Turn right on Lakewood.  (If you miss it, go to next street/stop light which is Conestee Rd. and turn right; that will bring you back to Lakewood.)  On Lakewood go 0.4 miles to 180 Lakewood, on the right.

The mail box numbering jumps a little and is not easy to see.  Putnams have dual mail boxes and two driveways.  There is a pond visible from the road.  We usually go in the right-hand drive around the pond and come out the opposite driveway.

October is the best time of year to put new plants in your landscape. The heat and stress of summer is over and plant roots will have the cool months to grow and take hold in your landscape.
