The Garden at Federal Twist Featured in the News!

The Garden at Federal Twist, in Stockton, NJ, created by James Golden, is featured in the current issues of BOTH Gardens Illustrated magazine and Better Homes and Gardens.


A true plantsman with an artist’s eye, Open Days garden host James Golden has created richly layered naturalistic plantings that evoke Alice in Wonderland, with surprising scale, form, texture, and color. 

See the garden in person in our Open Day on October 8!

Celebrate the arrival of autumn in three extraordinary gardens clustered along the Pennsylvania-New Jersey border, all part of our Open Day on Saturday, October 8.

In addition to the Garden at Federal Twist, two more outstanding gardens also await just ten minutes away:

Jericho Mountain Orchards centers on a seventeenth-century farmhouse with eighteenth-century farm buildings and stone walls, knit together by a charming series of garden rooms, many featuring old roses.  There is also a spectacular nineteenth-century apple orchard. 

Paxson Hill Farm is a tour de force of formal and informal design ideas, choice plants next to common varieties – ten acres giving form to the fruitful imagination and keen eye of popular Bucks County nurseryman and garden designer, Bruce Gangawer.

Specialty growers Broken Arrow Nursery and Atlock Farm, as well as Orchard Jewelry will sell their luscious wares at Federal Twist.

Take home a plant or set of new earrings! And learn about trees!

Shop for specialty plants and luscious botanical jewelry:  Broken Arrow Nursery, Atlock Farm, and Orchard Jewelry will be offering their wares at Federal Twist.

Learn about using trees in the garden:  At 4 p.m., Bruce Gangawer will host a Digging Deeper program, “Seeing the Garden for the Trees,” explaining how he uses trees in his designs. The group will get a look at unusual features like his weeping tupelo walk and allée of Zelkova ‘Ogon’ and also discuss how trees can shape spaces and punctuate mixed plantings, playing both starring and supporting roles.
