Upcoming Events

If you are interested in something specific, please contact us by Friday evening prior to the event and we will be sure to bring some with us. In fact, many people find it convenient to pre-order so that they simply need to pickup their plants and seeds on the day of the event.

Sunday, September 16th from 9 am-1 pm. Toadshade will be at the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market at Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine Street, Flemington, NJ 08822. We'll be there every Sunday after that through September; come see us, and don't forget to give us a call or email us (sometime before 9 pm Friday, please!) if you'd like us to bring some specific plants for you that Sunday!

Saturday, September 29th from 10:00 – 11:30. Randi will be leading an Ecology Hike in the Wildflower and Forest Preserve at South Mountain, ‘Fall in the Meadow- Flowers, Seeds, & Butterflies’. We will look at fall flowers, consider seed gathering and fall planting, late season butterflies and other pollinators, and discuss maintaining a wildflower meadow. Meet at the Wildflower and Forest Preserve/Dog Park parking lot, 11 Bear Lane, Maplewood, 07079 (off of Crest Drive). Native plant seeds from Toadshade will be available for purchase at the end of the hike.

Saturday, October 6th. We’ll be at the Metuchen Country Fair from 10am to 4pm, along Main & New Street in Downtown Metuchen.

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.

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!

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