Fall is for Planting Native Plant Sale Sat & Sun, Oct 6 & 7

Sat & Sun 10am - 4pm

The heat and humidity are gone and fall weather is finally here. Did you know that this is the best time to plant perennials for next year? Planting now gives plants the opportunity to establish themselves without the stress of reproduction efforts, heat, drought, bugs and disease. This also gives gardeners the opportunity next year to spend less time planting and more time enjoying their already established gardens.

This weekend will be our final Open Garden sale of 2018. It is also an opportunity for our customers to save on native plants. In appreciation for our customers planting natives in their gardens, we are offering the chance stock up on native plants with tiered pricing discounts. The more you buy, they more you save. Our $3.75 square potted perennials will be:

 5 for $18, 10 for $35.00, 15 for $50.00, and 20 for $65.00. Additional plants are $3.25 each.

We still have over 50 species left to chose from, some that were not available last spring. There are plants for every yard, be it coastal, pine barrens, moist, dry, sun, shade and just average gardens. Some plants include Asters, Goldenrods, Sunflowers, Cardinal Flower, Rhexias, Irises, Grasses, Rudbeckias, and Mints.

 We also now carry trees and shrubs like Swamp Rose, Red Maple, Steeplebush, and Sweet Fern and specialty plants like Coral Honeysuckle and Nodding Ladies’ Tresses orchids. These plants are $10.00 each.


Our gardens are still in bloom and offer a glimpse of how plants look in their natural habitat.

The Earth First Native Plant Nursery is located at 4054-A Tremont Ave, Egg Harbor TWP, NJ 08234  609-287-5090

ACUA Native Plant Evening with Raven Ahmed July 24, 7pm

Native Plants Society 
of New Jersey
Southeast Chapter  
Raven Ahmed on Native Plants at the ACUA
7 pm, July 26th
Thursday July 26, 7 pm

Join the ACUA for an evening walk, talk, and garden upkeep session. Raven Ahmed, founder of Earth First Native Plant Nursery, will share her knowledge of native plants by guiding participants through the garden and pointing out native species along the way.  We'll talk about the importance of planting native plants and also have the opportunity to remove some of the pesky species that need to be controlled.  The idea is for participants to be able to take this information back home and apply it to their own backyards - keeping those invasive species in check!
Gloves will be provided, but please feel free to bring anything else you like to garden with!  The evening should involve walking, sharing knowledge, and light yard work. 
If you would like to be updated with details about our future meetings, please contact Jesse Connor at:  (Contacting this site will put you on the list for monthly meeting information, field trip info, and timely updates.)
Jesse Connor, Jack Connor, Barbara Fiedler, and Steve Fiedler.
