When buying wildflowers, make sure they are propagated, not removed from the wild! If you have any doubt, ask! Some plant species have been driven to extinction in the wild due to the collection of wild plants!

This event is free and open to the public and there will be native plants and seeds for sale.

Toadshade is primarily a mail order nursery, and the farm itself is not open to the public. We have, however, recently partnered with our wonderful local hardware store (Frenchtown Home & Hardware), which is now a ‘pick-up’ point for orders, allowing order pickup 7 days a week in beautiful downtown Frenchtown . If you would like to pick up your order rather than having it sent by mail, please simply let us know (with 24 hour notice, M-F), and you will be able to pick up your order at the hardware store’s address (Frenchtown Home & Hardware, 11 Kingwood Ave, Frenchtown, NJ 08825) after receiving pickup details and confirmation from us by phone or email.

Has your group considered a Lecture, Seminar, and Workshop? Randi is an accomplished lecturer and popular public speaker. If you would like her to come share her knowledge with your local group, be they a garden club, a university class, master gardeners, etc let us know.

Part of our mission is Education so we offer a series of articles as blogs

Let us know if you would like a copy of our printed catalogue

Our plant descriptions let you know how difficult each species is to start and we have a helpful guide that describe the various techniques that you can use to start native perennial seeds.

There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.
