Upstate Plant Purchasing Update

Posted on by SCNPS Website Team

The upstate greenhouse steering committee has worked out a temporary, limited way for members and friends to purchase plants from the greenhouse.  It must be done by appointment.

Here is the newsletter article explaining the new process:

The all-volunteer Greenhouse Steering Committee has been working alongside the volunteers in the Greenhouse Gang and the Maintenance & Operations Team to prepare the nursery for sustained operations during the peak pandemic months during which we will be hosting an unusually high number of plants. Normally we would have sold 75% of our usual 4,000 plant inventory during the Spring Sale; however, this year due to the cancellation, we have a full house.We’ve installed several new beds and irrigation to help keep our plants healthy until the Fall sale which were hoping to have in late September or early October. In order to assure the health and safety of everyone  the Greenhouse is closed to all but a small maintenance crew for the near future.

During this time access to the property will be restricted to only those volunteers on the Maintenance & Operations Team and the Greenhouse Steering Committee.  We feel it is important to try and continue to provide plants to our membership and friends during these difficult times. Some of the Steering Committee members have volunteered to try and help facilitate sales on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to purchase a plant during the Spring planting season, you can reach-out to one of those listed below to make a request. We ask your patience and flexibility in working with these volunteers.  Their priority will be ensuring a safe transaction for all concerned. The link to the price list is above and also on the web-site calendar for April 18.  (
