Upstate Fall 2022 Native Plant Sale
October 1 @ 8:00 am - October 22 @ 5:00 pm
Upstate Fall Native Plant Sale
October 1 – 22, 2022
The annual Upstate Native Plant Society Fall sale will once again follow the model we used for sales during the Covid epidemic.
How to Order
The plant list will be posted on scnps.org approximately a week before the sale. Orders can be sent directly to Kathy Harrington at [email protected]. Payments can be made by credit card and the orders will be placed into a holding area at the UNN for contact-less pickup.
Reservations for an onsite/buying visit to the Upstate Native Nursery during the sale will be accepted and scheduled depending on volunteer availability. We welcome both members and non-members of the SC Native Plant Society. Please contact Kathy Harrington directly at [email protected]or at 864-310-1144 to set up a date and time.
Special Shopping Days for SCNPS Members
As we have done before, SCNPS members will get first dibs on these great plants on the first three days of the sale (10-1, 10-3, and 10-4). You must be a paid up member by 9-30-22 to order during the “members only” days at the start of the sale.

Many volunteers are needed to run the sale. We will train you on the two jobs: 1. pulling plants and moving them to the holding area or 2. as a team Leader in the holding area who will double check the accuracy of the order and then invoice the customer. Email or call Sale Chair Kathy Harrington to volunteer (864 310-1144).
DIRECTIONS TO THE UPSTATE NATIVE NURSERY:
Directions to the NPS Greenhouse at Kitty and Miller 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 Augusta Rd/ 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 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 left turn onto 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 with an “NPS Greenhouse” sign. There are two driveways on either side of a pond visible from the road. Take the right hand paved lane around the pond and follow the signs.
