Homestead Gardens is More than a Plant Nursery

Flower CollageIf you’re a new homeowner in Crofton, Gambrills, or Odenton, let me recommend one of my favorite places –  Homestead Gardens.  I don’t hesitate to drive right past the little plant and produce stand at the corner of Rt. 424 and 450, heading straight to Davidsonville.

In addition to the greenhouse and acres of plants including flowers, shrubs, and trees, Homestead Gardens has a Llama farm, Garden Club, Kids Club, gardening classes, and a retail center for houseplants, gardening supplies and home accents. 

Their Christmas store is so amazing, it deserves a blog of its own in December.  Right now, however, I’m looking forward to selecting some colorful mums for my yard – maybe after it cools off a little more.

Homestead is very much the “go-to” destination in Davidsonville for anyone living in the area.  But not just for buying plants and gardening supplies… they maintain a busy schedule of activities that attract visitors year round.  Here’s their schedule for September:
