Edge of the Woods Native Plant Nursery is the only nursery in the Lehigh Valley specializing in native plants. Our horticultural staff is the best in the area. Simply put, we know plants.
Re-opening with regular retail hours April 1, 2014. Sorry we do not ship plants. Please visit us to make your selections.
Native plants provide natural and sustainable beauty and a welcoming habitat for birds, butterflies and other insects, ensuring a future filled with a healthy diversity of plants and wildlife.
We are committed to sustainable growing practices. We use a certified organic, compost based potting mix for most of our container plants. Our plants are not forced with growth hormones, we use minimal pesticides in the nursery and practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management).
We offer quality container grown native plants including trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns, and wildflowers for the mid-Atlantic region, as well as a small selection of native aquatic plants. We specialize in matching the right plant to the right place, whether you are working on a home landscape, woodland, wetland, hedgerow, or rain garden. We offer small-scale contract growing for wholesale customers and assist landscapers in design and plant selection for their clients.
We do not ship plants or offer a catalog. Please visit us to see our plants and make your selection.
For a general idea of the plants we carry, please click here. We carry trees, shrubs, perennials, ferns, wildflowers and grasses that are native to the mid-Atlantic/northeast areas of the U.S.
In addition to our selection of over 300 species of native plants, we carry Organic Mechanics certified organic potting soil, Liquid Fence Deer and Rabbit Repellent, garden gloves and a small selection of gardening books.
Each season we bring a slate of speakers to help you learn about native plants and conservation landscaping. For 2014 we’ve added an event for creative arts folks. We have an events page on our website and also list all events on edgeofthewoods.eventbrite.com. Once the season gets in full swing, the web site is not updated as often as the eventbrite listing.
Some events are free and others require a fee (which helps us pay the speaker and our employees for the time setting up for the event.) Registration is appreciated in advance so we can prepare. Donations are accepted to help offset the expense of these educational programs.
Gift Certificates Available
