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 now taking orders for 2022*. We will do our best to ship your order on the date you request at checkout. Orders place early in the year (January-March) will be held until weather permits and/or all plants are fully grown and ready for shipping. If there is extreme heat or cold expected in the forecast for your ship week, we will hold the order until the weather is more suitable for shipping plants.

*Our online store will be paused Wednesday, May 4 to Wednesday, May 11 to adjust inventory and add new items.


Putnam Hill is open Wednesdays through Sundays, 10am-3pm.

We are closed 5/4-8 to prepare for off-site sales on Mother’s Day weekend.

Come visit us at Ladew Garden Festival or Maryland Sheep and Wool May 7&8!
