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!

This Weekend with Toadshade!

Come see Toadshade from 10 am to 5 pm this Saturday, May 21, at the Glen Ridge Arts and Eco Fair (Ridgewood Avenue, Glen Ridge, NJ, 07028)! It looks like the weather will be lovely and summery, but the rain date is Sunday from 10 to 5 (just in case!). Please feel free to place pre-orders for pickup at the Eco Fair, but make sure to send those orders in to us before noon on Thursday (May 19). We look forward to seeing you all at this great event!

Toadshade will be at the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers' Market from 9-1 every Sunday between now and the end of June! You can always place pre-orders for pickup at this event, just make sure to place your orders by noon on Thursday before the market where you plan to pick up!

This lovely flower is Starry False Lily of the Valley, also known as Starry False Solomon's Seal (Maianthemum stellatum), which we'll be bringing along with us on Sunday!

Spring has arrived, and with it, our schedule is quickly filling! Our shipping season begins on April 4th, but we're already gearing up for a number of events. If you live nearby, we'd love to have you join us for some of them!

Eastern Shooting Stars (Dodecatheon meadia) like this one will be in bloom soon. Their leaves are already poking up out of the soil! It's time to look around your garden and see what's starting to sprout...

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, partnered with our wonderful local hardware store (Frenchtown Home & Hardware), which is 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.

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.

Check out our series of educational blogs!

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.
