Before landscaping and planting your spring gardens this year, be sure to check out a Maryland nursery or garden center. By choosing to purchase your annual bedding plants, perennials, shrubs and trees from Maryland producers, you will not only be supporting our State’s farmers, but also your local economy.
Maryland is home to a thriving nursery industry, with 313 farms and over 29,000 acres dedicated to nursery production and sales. The largest segment of the industry, by value of sales, is wholesale with markets for their plants throughout the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, into Canada. According to the 2012 survey of horticulture by the Maryland Nursery, Landscape, and Greenhouse Association, Maryland had more than $1 billion worth of sales in the nursery industry.
