The following are events that are going on this weekend and into next week. Some did not make it in the last newsletter. Lots to do….

Oct 18 – SC Upstate Native Plant Sale 9am – 1pm. University Center Parking Lot. Plants bought in the fall may have begun to lose their leaves, there are no flowers on most species, and they just look drab! But let’s remember the hard work we’re asking that plant to do, just to get established. The establishment work is easier for a fall-planted perennial plant. Then you get to enjoy next spring’s growing, flowering and fruiting season in its full glory. So go to http://scnps.org/event/upstate-fall-native-plant-sale-2 , get the info on the SCNPS Upstate Native Plant sale, and get a list of plant species that will be available. And happy fall planting!
