2023 Spring Upstate Native Plant Sale

April 15 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm   Conestee Park, 840 Mauldin Road, Greenville

The In-Person Plant Sale is Back!

The annual Spring sale is a large, in-person style sale again this year at Conestee Park, 840 Mauldin Road in Greenville.

The date is Saturday, April 15th from 9:00am to 1pm.

There will be a wide variety of native shrubs, trees, perennial wildflowers, ferns, vines, grasses, water plants, and much more. Knowledgeable advisors will be on the sale floor to assist all customers with plant selection. Assume lots of impulse buying, and bring your own cart or wagon. (Regretfully, we won’t have any to loan out this year.)

Cash, credit cards, and checks accepted. A 3% surcharge will apply for credit card orders to cover our Square expenses. (Sorry! But, you know: non-profit, and all that!)

Guest Vendors and special exhibits

Guest vendors will include Carolina Wild, Jeff Miller with his carnivorous plants, and Saturnia Farms. These are always among our most popular booths. (Well, besides the plants themselves!)

There will also be educational exhibits including some of our favorite beekeepers; a bookstore stall with engaging tomes on Native plants (for both perusal and sale); and a public service booth focusing on exotic invasive species (“Get thee Gone, Fig Buttercups!”).

Volunteers Needed

We still need a few more volunteers to run the sale. (You wouldn’t believe how many it takes!)  We will train you on the various jobs from moving plants, assisting customers, writing up invoices, holding plants while customers continue to shop, and loading plants into vehicles.  Click HERE to see all the ways you can help make the sale a success.
