D&R Greenway Land Trust

Announces In-Person
Spring 2022 Native Plant Sale

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 19, 2022, Princeton

D&R Greenway announces over fifty species of healthy local plants are ready for purchase at their annual Native Plant Sale. Planting natives enhances home gardens in natural beauty, attracts butterflies and birds in the landscape, and contributes to protection of a healthy bioregion. The Nursery is on the grounds of D&R Greenway’s Conservation Campus at the Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, [off Rosedale Road] Princeton, NJ. Native Plant Sale proceeds support D&R Greenway’s preservation and stewardship mission.

Tina Notas, Director of Land Stewardship for D&R Greenway, remarks, “Spring is a great time to add the joy of native plants to your backyard. There are so many gorgeous native plants to choose from that will benefit wildlife and support our ecosystem.”

D&R Greenway’s comprehensive online catalog for review provides images of in-stock plants, thorough plant descriptions, and pro-tips from D&R Greenway’s experienced Stewardship team. The catalog clearly addresses specific home garden conditions, such as filtered sun and varying soil conditions. Possibilities include “Herbaceous Shrubs, Plants and Trees” as well as popular Swamp milkweed, Sweet pepperbush ‘hummingbird’ and Echinacea, (Purple Coneflower).

D&R Greenway’s native trees, shrubs, perennial wildflowers, grasses, sedges and ferns are grown either on-site or purchased from reputable local native-plant growers. Native Plant Nursery specimens are grown from locally sourced starter plants, and are free of harmful nicotinoid insecticides. Planting natives that evolved locally requires less maintenance, in terms of fertilizer, water and pesticides.
