Herring Run Nursery Rainwater

Herring Run Nursery, located in the Mount Pleasant Golf Course, is a non-profit nursery operated by Blue Water Baltimore that specializes in selling native plants grown in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

About the Nursery

The Nursery offers more than 250 native species of trees, shrubs, vines, flowers, and plants to both retail and wholesale customers.

We strive to offer native plants which are beautiful, durable, high in wildlife value, and appropriate for Baltimore area landscapes.

The majority of our plants are grown from seed, using local sources as much as possible.  We believe that plants grown from seeds collected in local or nearby populations will be better adapted to our soils, our climate, and our ecosytems. If you require specific information about the provenance of a particular plant we grow, we will be happy to provide as much detail as we are able to.

Native Plants Provide

  • Habitat for Butterflies

  • Food for Birds and Bees

  • Less Pollution in Our Streams

  • Easy to Grow Local Beauty

Plant Availability

Herring Run Nursery carries a broad selection of plants that are native to Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Please note that plant availability varies from week to week as well as season to season. We make every effort to keep our list up-to-date, some things sell out before we can take the off and new plants are ready before we can add them.

We work hard to ensure our plants are healthy and properly labeled. We cannot guarantee them once they have left the nursery, and are not able to offer refunds or exchanges.

Connect With Us

We are open for retail sales on scheduled days in the spring and fall, and sometimes by appointment during those seasons.

Herring Run Nursery is located in the Mount Pleasant Golf Course, on the north side of Northern Parkway. Access our nursery using the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation entrance, not the main golf course entrance. The nursery is a 1/4 mile walk from the parking lot of the stone house.
