2023: Voted #20 of the 100 Top Independent Garden Centers by Garden Center Magazine

Our Story: The Premier Garden Center in Bowie, MD

In 1996 Patuxent Nursery, originally a one-stop shop for landscape professionals, soon expanded to serve the gardening needs of the public in Bowie, Maryland and beyond. This change started us off in the direction that would find Patuxent Nursery a spot in the Top 100 Garden Centers in the country – after just ten years in business. The owners are local residents, and have been living in and serving Prince George’s and Anne Arundel Counties for quite some time. Once they found the old tobacco farm on scenic Route 301, they knew it would become the perfect location for their new business.

Today, as a result of extensive, continuous re-investment in the development of the facility, and a dedication to expanding product offerings, Patuxent provides homeowners a very special shopping experience. Patuxent features  outdoor living accessories, the largest selection of trees and shrubs in the metro area, the most amazing assortment of colorful flowers, perennials, tropicals and organically grown edibles. Patuxent Nursery is truly a unique destination.
