Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum

The Friends are having a 24-1/2 Annual Plant Sale this Spring! Although we still won't be able to throw a big Silver Anniversary Party this year, as we'd truly like to do, we've decided to indulge your passion for plants by hosting an online sale of select plants. If you've been watching our programming, you've already started planning for this year's garden season by attending our free talks during February and March (links in the box at right)and you can visit our Online Plant Sale and schedule a time to collect your hand-picked plants curbside by the big tent at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum during the first weekend in May. And don't just stop with plants on your list, get one for your mother, your best friend, your neighbor. Spread a little joy! All social distancing, mask mandates, etc. will be followed and timed pickup will be implemented to reduce the number of cars at any given time. Get in touch if you have questions at mennist@arboretumfriends.net, lbencivengo@arboretumfriends.net, or leave a voicemail at 973-937-8803. Happy gardening from the Plant Sale Team!
