Welcome to Putnam Hill Nursery

After 26 years of playing with plants at Putnam Hill we are still learning, having fun and excited that we are able to offer a robust selection of perennials, herbs, dye plants, annuals, vines, and native plants that are propagated and grown here at our nursery in Forest Hill, Maryland (Near Baltimore, MD in Harford County).  Our plant list continues to evolve from years of plant collecting and the enjoyment of growing and sharing what we have found to be great plants.  Shop our nursery in person or shop online.


SHOPPING ONLINE? We are shipping! Some plants will need to be cut back in order to fit in the box, but we will do our best to send plants with as much top growth as possible. If a plant is cut back hard it is because it is either ready to go dormant or will flush back quickly. All plants continue to have active root growth through the fall establishing themselves in the garden emerging lush and gorgeous in the spring.

Happy Gardening!
