Maryland gardens are grown indoors and outdoors throughout the State. They also bloom naturally where holly and dogwood emerge wild in woodlands, and wisteria and honeysuckle flourish.

Plants for gardens, including indoor gardens, are sold at nurseries, farmers' markets, flowermarts, and festivals in Maryland. Annual plant sales are offered at historic sites as well, such as Historic London Town and Gardens at Edgewater, and the William Paca House and Garden in Annapolis, and by local garden clubs and community groups at various times and locales throughout the year.
