D&R Greenway’s annual plant sale blooms into town next week

by Community Contributor

The public is invited to welcome spring by visiting the Native Plant Nursery at the Johnson Education Center during D&R Greenway’s Spring 2024 native plant sale, Thursday, April 25, 12 – 4pm, Friday, April 26, 12 – 3pm, Saturday, April 27, 9am – 12pm.

D&R Greenway’s stewardship team and volunteers will be on hand to help visitors choose the perfect plants that will flourish in different garden soils and conditions. All sales are in person this year and visitors are invited to spend some time to enjoy the beauty of nature by exploring the grounds surrounding the Johnson Education Center and walking the labyrinth.

D&R Greenway’s comprehensive online catalog for review provides thorough plant descriptions, and pro-tips from D&R Greenway’s experienced Stewardship team and can assist you in selecting the right native plants, shrubs and trees for your garden habitat.  Consider Swamp milkweed (host to monarch butterfly), New England aster (seeds are eaten by birds), black cherry tree (host plant for 450+ species of butterflies), cardinal flower (provides natural nectar source for hummingbirds), marginal woodfern (host plant for caterpillars), foamflower (native groundcover) and many more.  Visit https://drgreenway.org/shop/native-plants/ for the full list of available plants. “How better to show you care about the future than by planting a tree? asked Tina Notas, Director Land Stewardship.

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.
