JCAM Grave Site Plantings

Plantings are allowed at our Baker Street cemeteries where irrigation is available as well as the Adath Jeshurun cemetery on Grove Street in West Roxbury.

Plantings are not allowed at our other cemeteries including those in Wayland, Natick, Randolph and at Mishkan Tefila Memorial Park.

Only plantings having a current JCAM Planting Contract are authorized. Unauthorized plantings, potted plants, artificial flowers and decorative items are not allowed and will be removed. Plantings cannot be installed prior to a permanent grave marker being set.

Planting Contract requests must be submitted under the following conditions:

  • Plantings are done April to May and September to October only. We must receive new planting requests by March 1 or August 1.
  • Annual care invoices are sent in March with payment due by April 30th.
  • JCAM will not provide plantings unless payment has been received.
  • JCAM will make every effort to accommodate orders/payments received outside of the above deadlines.

Plantings consist of perennials (such as Hosta, Sedum, Salvia, Daylillies or low, ground-hugging Junipers). Shurbs, bushes and upright plantings such as trees, evergreens and arborvitaes are not allowed.
