Temperatures are dropping and the scents of fall gardening fill the air.

To help people with their landscaping needs, the South Carolina Botanical Garden’s annual fall plant sales will be held from 2-6 p.m. on Friday, September 23 and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, September 24. . The Friday sale is for members of the Friends of the Garden. Memberships are available at the door as well as online at https://iamatiger.clemson.edu/giving/scbg. The Saturday sale is open to the public. Sales will be held in the operations section of the Botanical Garden, located at 154 Lacecap Loop near Perimeter Road in Clemson, South Carolina.

“Our semi-annual plant sales that take place each fall and spring are a major source of revenue for the South Carolina Botanical Garden,” said Misty Shealy, nursery manager for the garden. “The proceeds are used for special projects that would not be possible without the income generated from plant sales. We welcome everyone to the garden.

Plant sales include trees, shrubs, fruits and berries, grasses, marsh plants, perennials and ferns prepared by garden volunteers and staff. Native plants and landscape plants will be available for purchase.

Buyers are requested to follow a few simple instructions. Signs will be posted at each entrance to the garden. People are asked to follow these signs to the nursery and park in front of the gate. Staff will direct parking. Once inside, Shealy said people were free to start shopping.

“There are a limited number of carts available, but everyone is welcome to bring their own,” she said. “Checkout tent volunteers will happily hold their purchases while shoppers continue to shop.”

When shopping is complete, volunteers at the cashier tent will give them a ticket to present at the cashier, where cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.

“People can then drive their cars to the crate tent where volunteers will load their plants for them,” Shealy said.

Along with buying and selling plants, Shealy said sales are also great educational opportunities for anyone interested in gardening. Garden staff and master gardeners will be available on both sale dates to assist with plant selection.

A catalog of plant material is available at https://bit.ly/SCBG_Fall2022PlantSales. This catalog will also be available at the door.
