Before landscaping and planting your spring gardens this year, be sure to go to a Maryland nursery or garden center. By choosing to purchase your annual bedding plants, perennials, shrubs and trees from Maryland producers, you will not only be supporting our family farmers, but also your local economy.
Maryland is home to a thriving nursery industry, with 313 farms producing more than $225 million worth of plants. The largest segment of the industry, by value of sales, is wholesale with markets for their plants throughout the Mid-Atlantic and the Northeast, into Canada. According to the most recent, 2014, census of horticulture by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Ag Statistics Service, Maryland had $207 million of wholesale receipts in the nursery industry.
