Plant Sale

Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“Come one — come all” to our spring Plant Sale, held in the Cross Estate Gardens. This is a great opportunity to find new plants or replace your plants that didn’t survive this past winter. Our Plant Sale will be filled with divisions from our shady native plant garden and from our sunny walled garden, plus donated plants from our volunteers’ and members’ gardens. In addition to perennials, we will have a selection of small trees and shrubs. All funds raised at this sale will help the volunteers of the NJHGF care for the Cross Estate Gardens. Your support of our Plant Sale is greatly appreciated!
