Kingsdene Nursery & Garden Center Best of Baltimore 2022

This charming gem of a nursery is in all ways the opposite of a big box shop. For starters, they grow much of their own stock. Small in size, Kingsdene is prized by serious plantspeople, particularly for its selection of trees and shrubs. A small business that distinguishes itself through exceptional customer service, it’s not uncommon for staffers to forage in a dense sea of plants to find the best-looking specimen for their customers. They also stand behind their plants, offering a one-year warranty on many trees and shrubs.

Roses Available in the Nursery

“A rose is a rose is a rose”, and they are all lovely. 🌹 We have drifts, old-fashioned, knock-outs, and the popular Brindabella™ series. All available in the nursery. {quote penned by Gertrude Stein}
