Annuals for Fall

Fall in love with Fall!

We absolutely adore the fall season here in the Homestead Gardens Annuals department. It’s an incredibly exciting time as we eagerly welcome fresh, new, locally grown crops that are just perfect for seasonal garden decorating. And let’s not forget the vibrant mums that kickstart the season with their beautiful buds, available in a stunning array of colors including yellow, orange, red, white, lavender, and pink.

As the autumn days unfold, we delight in the arrival of ornamental cabbage and kale, gracing our garden beds with their mesmerizing palette of soft blue-greens, white, pink, and dusky purple. And of course, we can’t overlook the exquisite ornamental peppers. With their lush green or deep purple foliage, they proudly showcase bright red, yellow, orange, or purple fruit, and believe it or not, sometimes all on the same plant!

We take immense pride in offering locally grown annuals, nurtured right here in the heart of Davidsonville, MD. Supporting local growers while bringing the very best to our valued customers is what we’re all about. So come on over and immerse yourself in the splendor of our fall collection.
