Nursery (Volunteer)

The Delaware Native Plant Society has a one acre nursery located at the St. Jones Reserve just south of Dover. The nursery is dedicated to growing primarily trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants that are native to the Delmarva Peninsula. A large percentage of our plants are grown from seed that is locally collected on Delmarva by volunteers. The rest of the inventory is rounded out with plants purchased at regional nurseries that specialize in offering material that is native to the region. Our nursery has a greenhouse, shadehouses, and several open beds. Most of the plants grown here are used in restoration projects on DNERR properites around the state.
