How To

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!


Pre-orders for both weekend events must be received by noon on Friday

Sunday, September 12 from 9-1 Toadshade will be back at the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers Market, 111 Mine St, Flemington NJ! We’re excited to be back, and we’ll be bringing a whole new list of plants with us ( for you to check out. Fall is an excellent time to plant perennials, especially woody species, and it looks like it’ll be a beautiful weekend!
We’ll be at the Farmer’s Market on Sunday between 9-1 for the next three weeks, so make sure to stop by and see us.

Saturday, September 18th, from 10-2 Toadshade Wildflower Farm will be selling native plants and seeds in Founders Park (265 Valley Rd, South Orange NJ) as part of the NPSNJ Essex Chapter Fall Garden Tour. You can preorder or come shop in person.

Don't see what you're looking for on our online catalogue? Check back soon! We frequently make changes over the course of the season as more species become available. And if in doubt, ask! We'd love to hear from you!

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 . Any pickup order costing more than $50 must be pre-paid, but pickup is always free! 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.

Let us know if you would like a copy of our printed catalogue or sign up for our blog.

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.
