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!

Welcome to the new year!

If you're looking for a way to stay involved with plants this winter, there will be plenty of opportunities, and we'd love to see you at one of these upcoming events!

On Saturday, February 4, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Eastern Branch of the Monmouth County Library (1001 NJ-35, Shrewsbury, NJ), Randi will be running the workshop "Spring Into Native Plants: A Seed-Planting Workshop" hosted by the Monmouth chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey". Learn techniques and tricks for growing native perennial plants from seed. Randi will discuss seed dormancy, scarification, stratification, and other special seed treatments sometimes needed to coax seeds to grow. Each workshop participant will go home with several species of natives all planted and ready to grow. Register online at the following link: https://www.eventkeeper.com/mars/xpages/M/MONCO/ek.cfm?curOrg=MONCO&curKey1=Eastern%20Branch&CFID=68467994&CFTOKEN=23db2fe4f916100a-C1B05494-D4AE-528A-5350B5001A72ECED#7134940"

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.
