NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rutgers Gardens are operating under and are fully compliant with Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 107, CDC guidelines (including social distancing), as well as federal, state, and university regulations to support agriculture, nurseries, and food sustainability.
To browse plants, scroll through the catalog below, click on any of the plant categories, or use the search bar to find specific plants. We’ve sorted plants into convenient categories, including edibles, as well as denoted native, deer-resistant, and pollinator plants. When you find something you want, just click “add to cart.” You can adjust quantities in your shopping cart before submitting your final order. Credit card information will not be submitted during checkout. Instead you will receive a link via email to process your payment securely online.
All perennial plants need to be ordered before Monday, April 27th, but we plan to have our online shop open a bit longer for plants grown in-house at Rutgers Gardens (such as herbs and vegetables, tropicals, succulents, and annuals). We will be in touch after your order has been paid to schedule your pickup. Timed pickups will start on Thursday, May 7th, at Rutgers Gardens, under all social distancing and active public safety rules. If for any reason we are unable to provide a plant you ordered, we will refund the cost of that plant. Otherwise all orders are final. All plants are non-returnable. We provide healthy plants but cannot guarantee successful growth after planting.
Thank you very much for your continued support during these very challenging times! The income from the plant sale and memberships supports our programs at Rutgers Gardens and helps us to stay open to the public. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us by email.
Please try to consolidate your shopping into as few separate orders as possible. Multiple orders will generate multiple invoices. It is not possible for us to merge orders.
