The Friends Are Going to Scotland

Plant Sale Over for This Year!

Just a quick note: this year's Plant Sale was pretty terrific for all who participated. The weather cooperated, the experts were wonderful and it couldn't have taken place without all the great volunteers and visitors. Thanks to all and just wait till next year.


This Year's Plant Dividends

One of the benefits of membership in the Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum is that you get a plant dividend each year. Chosen from a number of beautiful specimens, these plants are great introductions to wonderful specimens.


Early Spring

As you have probably seen in your own garden, everything is blooming at once. Our gardens at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum are no different. Volunteer Phil Dahlen has begun his regular update of the What's In Bloom list where you can keep up with nature's race.

On a related note, the 34th Annual New Jersey Daffodil Show scheduled for next weekend (Apr. 23-25) had to be cancelled as the early Spring and hot weather caused the daffodils to come and go before the show.


Friends Annual Report

Each year, the Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum produce an Annual Report recapping the past year's activities, as well as setting forth the financial statements of the organization. We are proud to make this report available here on the website. Click here to view the document (pdf).

Four Seasons of Color

Four Seasons of Color

On Sunday, April 25th, we are lucky to present a talk on "Four Seasons of Color for the Garden State" by Pegi Ballister-Howells, a noted author and radio host. Her talk runs from 1:00 - 2:00 pm, and is followed immediately by our Garden Art Swap.


New Retail Partners

As many of you know, a benefit of membership in the Friends of Frelinghuysen Arboretum is that you can enjoy discounts at our Retail Partners. This growing list of horticultural merchants offers discounts to all presenting their membership cards at time of purchase.


We added two more Retail Partners last week and have updated the list which you may view by clicking here.

Plant Sale Updates

There's only a little over a month till the annual Friends Plantsale and our co-chairs Ilona Ontscherenki and Sue Acheson are deep into the ordering and scheduling. Nevertheless, they have taken the time to add lots of content to the Plantsale Page.

Click on the link and see all the additions -- movies, Plant Tidbits and the on-line plantlist. We'll see you there in a month!
