Plant Availability

Herring Run Nursery carries a broad selection of plants that are native to Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Please note that plant availability varies from week to week as well as season to season. We make every effort to keep our list up-to-date, but there are occasional discrepancies. Please contact us if you have specific questions regarding varieties and quantities.

Retail Dates and Hours

Our general hours of operation are 10 AM -3 PM, Wednesday – Sunday. Please see the link below for our complete schedule.

We are sorry to say that we have had to make a change in our parking policy for our Weekday Retail hours. Parking at the Nursery gate will be limited to volunteers and customers with limited mobility. We ask that all other customers park within the designated areas of the Hillen Rd. parking lot near the stone house and then walk down to the nursery. Don’t worry – our volunteers and staff will help transport you and your plants back to your vehicle! We appreciate your understanding and patience, and apologize for any inconvenience.
