Q. Where can I purchase native plants in the NYC area?
Generally you can purchase native plants at many nurseries throughout the Northeast US. If you have a nursery near you, ask about their native plant selection. They may not have a huge variety but there should be something to choose from. An excellent resource in NYC is the Greenbelt Native Plant Center on Staten Island. This is a City run organization who's mission is to provide locally appropriate seeds and plants and
offer guidance with planning your projects.
If you do not live in the NYC area, or you are looking for nurseries that specialize in native plants and seeds, visit the Plant Native website for a state-by-state database of native plant nurseries and lists of native plants by region
