D&R Greenway Land Trust announces Spring Native Plant Sale for Earth Day

D&R Greenway announces over fifty species of healthy local plants are ready for purchase at their annual Native Plant Sale sales taking place on Thursday, April 20, 12noon – 4pm; Friday, April 21, 1pm – 4pm; and EARTH DAY: Saturday, April 22, 9am – 11:30pm at the Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, Princeton, NJ.

Planting natives enhances home gardens in natural beauty, attracts butterflies and birds in the landscape, and contributes to protection of a healthy bioregion. The Nursery is on the grounds of D&R Greenway’s Conservation Campus at the Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, [off Rosedale Road] Princeton, NJ 08540.  Native Plant Sale proceeds support D&R Greenway’s preservation and stewardship mission. www.drgreenway.org.

Tina Notas, Director of Land Stewardship for D&R Greenway, remarked: “By adding locally-grown native plants to your garden, you’ll be rewarded with a melodious chorus of pollinators, including native birds. There are so many gorgeous native plants to choose from that will benefit wildlife and support our ecosystem.”

D&R Greenway’s comprehensive online catalog for review provides thorough plant descriptions, and pro-tips from D&R Greenway’s experienced Stewardship team. The catalog clearly addresses specific home garden conditions, such as filtered sun and varying soil conditions. Possibilities include “Wildflowers, Herbaceous Shrubs, Trees, Ferns and even Grasses” as well as popular Cardinal flower, Purple Coneflower, Winterberry Holly, Blueberry, and Oaks.  https://drgreenway.org/shop/native-plants/

D&R Greenway’s native trees, shrubs, perennial wildflowers, grasses, and ferns are grown either on-site or purchased from reputable local native-plant growers. Native Plant Nursery specimens are grown from locally sourced starter plants, and are free of harmful nicotinoid insecticides. Planting natives that evolved locally requires less maintenance in terms of fertilizer, water and pesticides.
