“Be Inspired” Seasonally by Rita Calvert

We're Painting the Town Perennial! Learn about container gardening with perennials...During our Perennial Pandemonium we're doing something very fun and unique-throwing a tent party with our Perennial Container Garden Recipes provided by our own container garden designers! So here's the deal:  purchase a container (with a big discount this weekend!) and plants (MORE DISCOUNTS on selected plants) and concoct the garden right under our tent using FREE potting soil provided by Homestead! It's like having your own personal garden advisor, shopper and designer. Browse our selection of over 1,000 perennials in all colors and textures to find the perfect complement to your existing garden palette... or inspire a new one! 


We have tons of colors and textures to complement your existing garden palette or inspire a new one! Heuchera, Day Lilies, Hostas, Shasta Daisies & much more, including over 60 varieties of Maryland natives!

  The Perennial Container Gardening tent will be open from 11am-3pm both Saturday & Sunday.
