Edge of the Woods Native Plant Nursery is the only nursery in the Lehigh Valley specializing in native plants. Our plants are grown by horticulturists, with strict attention paid to producing a plant with healthy roots.  Many of the natives we carry are rarely offered by other nurseries.  Some are grown from seed, a process which can take up to three years from seed to sell-able plant. We limit the use of chemicals, hand weeding our plants, and managing many pests with organic or natural methods.

If you would like to attract birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, or pollinators to your landscape, native plants are the way to go.  Native plants evolved with birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and pollinators and provide the habitat and food they need in your own backyard.

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.  Our plants are not forced with growth hormones, we use minimal pesticides in the nursery, and practice Integrated Pest Management.  We do not use systemic pesticides and our plants are safe for visiting bees, insects, and wildlife.

We offer quality container grown native plants including trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns, and wildflowers for the mid-Atlantic region.  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.
