‘Jersey Grown’ Program Expands

If you’re in the market for annuals, why not try Jersey Grown plants?  New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas Fisher announced the expansion of the program that identifies locally grown horticulture products.

Jersey Grown, similar to the Jersey Fresh program for local produce, was launched several years ago to allow New Jersey growers to identify trees, shrubs, plants and flowers as grown in New Jersey.

“We’re expanding the program to include annuals that are grown here in the Garden State,” said Fisher.  “Christmas trees, firewood, birdseed and others already have had the ‘Jersey Grown’ tag, but now residents will be able to buy locally grown bedding plants and a whole host of other items knowing it was grown here and acclimated to the growing conditions in New Jersey.  At the same time, they can support local farmers and nurseries.”
