Welcome to Putnam Hill Nursery

After 27 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? Shipping plants for 2022 has now ended. We will continue to ship seeds.

Feel free to place orders for spring of 2023.

SHIPPING BEGINS IN MARCH. Select your desired ship date and we will do our best to ship on your requested date. Please reach out if you are experiencing extreme weather conditions and would like to change your ship date. We watch the weather from state to state but since you are there, you have the best view! We cannot be responsible for plants asked to be shipped during cold winter months.

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. Please consider our seeds as we are able to ship seeds to all states.

The website is currently being updated for spring 2023. Check back frequently to find new items!


Happy Gardening!
