Spring Native Plant Sale

PPA holds a native plant sale every April. Plants native to the Pine Barrens and South Jersey are offered for sale.


2020 Native Plant Sale

Check this web page for plant sale updates given the COVID-19 crisis. We are working on a plan for the plant sale that would allow us to hold the sale and respect public health guidelines.

March 30, 2020 Update: We will not be holding the plant sale in April due to the new stricter travel advisory.  Right now our goal is to hold the plant sale mid-May as long as things improve and travel restrictions are lifted. Stay tuned!

A great way to help preserve our native flora is to plant native vegetation around our homes and businesses. Luckily, New Jersey residents have lots of beautiful and interesting native plants to choose from.

When you landscape with native plants, not only are you likely to save money and resources by using less fertilizer, soil additives, and water, you are also helping to strengthen the complex web of connections linking native species and ecological processes in your local ecosystem.
