Fall in love with Fall!
We LOVE fall here in the Homestead Gardens Annuals department. It’s an exciting time as fresh, new, locally grown crops arrive for seasonal garden decorating. Mums start off the season, budded and ready for early planting in all your favorite colors—yellow, orange, red, white, lavender, and pink. Ornamental cabbage and kale follow, in a beautiful palette of soft blue-greens, white, pink, and dusky purple. Ornamental peppers join the crowd, decked out in lush green or deep purple foliage, and sporting bright red, yellow, orange, or purple fruit—often all on the same plant!!
All of our annuals are locally grown right here in Davidsonville, MD!
