Welcome to Putnam Hill Nursery

Hi! Welcome to our online nursery!  We are so glad you have stopped in our shop to see what we have to offer this year and hope you enjoy perusing our selection. We 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.  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, shop online or meet us at a scheduled plant sale near you.


Our online shop is open but we will hold shipping your order until September when temperatures return to the 70’s. At checkout you will be required to select the date you would like your plants to be shipped. Please select a date after September 1.  We will do our best to ship the same week you requested, but will hold the order if day time temperatures are still above 80 degrees. Shipping is on Mondays and Tuesdays to allow time for your plants to arrive before the weekend.

If you would like to pick up your plants from the nursery, select ‘Local Pickup’ at checkout. Please select a date that the nursery is open to pick up your plants or make an appointment to pick up. Thank you!

Due to agricultural reasons we are not able to ship plants to the following states: AK, AZ, CA, CO, FL, ID, LA, MT, ND, NM, NV, OR, WA, UT, WY. If you live in one of these states and enjoy our selection, please consider our seeds as we are able to ship seeds to all states.
