History of Homestead Gardens
Nestled within the pastoral and hilly countryside of Davidsonville, Maryland, Homestead’s original facility has staked its claim as “the largest enclosed garden center in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas.” Founded in 1973 by Don Riddle, Jr., Homestead’s nursery also boasts “the area’s largest selection of annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs.”
