Welcome to Putnam Hill Nursery

At Putnam Hill Nursery we offer a robust selection of perennials, herbs, 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 has emerged from years of plant collecting and the driving urge to ‘make more’ and share what we have found to be great plants.  Shop our nursery in person or shop online.


AS WE APPROACH FALL, MANY OF THE PLANTS YOU RECEIVE MAY BE CUT BACK. No worries! They will continue to grow, especially the roots! Fall is the most excellent time to plant. Roots grow as long as soil temperatures are 50 degrees and warmer. Plants planted in the fall are busy growing underground ready to burst forth in the spring bigger and better adapted to the garden. So take advantage of the cool fall days and happily plant knowing your plants are getting just what they need. 🙂



If you would like to visit the nursery, please call ahead. Currently we are open Sundays, 10am – 3pm. All other hours are by appointment. Masks and social distancing is required. Thank you, stay safe, and happy gardening!
