Landreth Seeds Sidewalk Sale this weekend in Baltimore

cecilia_md7a(7a/Baltimore,MD)May 18, 2005

D. Landreth Seed Company is having a plant sale this weekend in Baltimore. I posted the following text of their flyer (including the plants that will be offered) on the Heirlooms forum, but figured that it would be of interest to our Mid-Atlantic forum regulars, as well.

Thanks Cecelia, for posting this here. I don't know where North Point Rd. is, but I'll find it. I live in the Greenspring Ave./Sinai Hospital area. Which part of town is the store located?

Did you happen to go to Cylburn Arbortoreum on Mother's Day weekend? They had a plant sale....which I missed b/c I was out of town!

Anyhoo, I am planning on going to the C & S Show and Sale in Wheaton, MD this weekend. I think I'll just swing by this local sale first and then head out to Wheaton(whereever that is!!!!!!!!!!!!) I'll do a MapQuest before leaving the house.

Say, do you shop at ValleyView Farms in Cockeysville? Love that place! Watson's is good too.

Okay, Bye and thanks again!

GH, Landreth is on the east side of B'more - probably a hike for you! I've never been there before, either, but I live on the SW side of town, so it looks like a quick trip thru the old Harbor Tunnel should get me there easily.

I missed the Cylburn sale - Mother's Day weekend was really busy for me.

I'm quite familiar with Valley View, as I work in Hunt Valley, on McCormick Rd, just around the corner from VV. I've bought a lot of stuff from them over the years - mostly supplies, as I grow a lot of stuff from seed, and get more stuff from the GW swaps!

I've been to Watsons once or twice, but admittedly, I don't hang out in the Towson/Lutherville/etc. area, as I try to get out of there as early as possible to beat the Beltway traffic.

On my side of town, we have Garland's Gardens in Catonsville, plus there are several larger nurseries in Columbia. But if I REALLY want a nursery fix, I head down I-95 to Behnke's in Beltsville.
