Event details: APLD New Jersey Chapter
In our over-scheduled world, it is often difficult to carve out time to explore different plant options for landscape design challenges. Nurseries that specialize in new and exciting introductions can help you keep up-to-date and innovative in your plant choices. They also have hands-on experience with the actual growing conditions which plants require for long term success in the landscape.
At Pleasant Run, we make it our mission to find and grow the most exciting new selections of both perennial and woody plants, and to re-acquaint our customers with heirloom, tried-and-true plant options. We work hard to test a large range of perennials and woodies in our display gardens, so we know first hand what does well in New Jersey. We also focus increasingly on finding solutions to problems in the landscape resulting from specific conditions, such as deer predation, dry shade, salt exposure or waterlogged soils.
We are looking forward to hosting our APLDNJ friends at our nursery on April 29th.
