Semiannual Plant Sales
Fall Plant Sales
September 18 Private Sale for Friends of the Garden
September 19 Public Day
The South Carolina Botanical Garden Fall Plant Sales will be held on Friday, September 18 from 2-6 pm (open to Friends of the Garden, memberships available at gate), and Saturday, September 19, from 9 am -1 pm (public sales). All sales will be held in the nursery section of the SCBG located at 154 Lacecap Loop.
Garden volunteers and staff are hard at work preparing for the sales. A large selection and variety of plant material will be available including: summer annuals, organically-grown vegetables and herbs, bog plants, perennials, shrubs, grasses, trees, fruits, berries, and ferns. Many native plants will be available. A majority of the plant material offered for sale is produced in our nursery, and many selections are propagated from our SCBG plant collection.
The Children’s Garden will be selling annual herbs to raise funds for improvements, and the Upstate Daylily Society will be offering prize-winning Hemerocallis selections. Also available will be hanging baskets, hypertufa containers, birdhouse gourds, and luffa sponges. Hourly raffles will be held for hanging baskets and planters.
Garden staff, Master Gardeners and Clemson Horticulture faculty will be on hand to assist with selection of plants for your home landscape. A catalog of plant material will be available online at www.clemson.edu/public/scbg/ several weeks before the sale. Catalogs will also be available at the gate.
Plant sales are the major fundraising events for the SCBG, and all proceeds support operations and enhancements in the garden. For additional information, please contact Jeanne Briggs, Nursery Manager, at 864-656-3405, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the nursery’s Facebook page (SCBGNursery) for updates and pictures.
