The Crownsville Nursery
       shipping great plants for America's gardens since 1979

our 37th year...

The Crownsville Nursery & Bridgewood Gardens are now Combined!
In the past, we have always run the two nurseries as separate operations. Bridgewood Gardens has been a Hosta Specialty nursery and The Crownsville Nursery has carried Ferns and other perennials. Starting this spring the nurseries will be combined under The Crownsville Nursery name, with our extensive Hosta collection now listed as a section in Crownsville’s catalog.

Instead of 2 catalogs & 2 websites to navigate, you will now be able to order everything from a single source. Everything else will basically be the same. The same great plants & exceptional shipping & packing system. The same folks working here & running things. If you have any questions or if I can be of any help, please email me at

Thanks, dave
