Growing since 1929 in Easton, Maryland

Started in 1929 by Ernest and his son, E. Sam Hemming, Eastern Shore Nurseries Inc. has been growing plants continuously since then for our area’s finest gardens and landscapes. Started as a wholesale English Boxwood growing operation, the Depression changed that. For survival, the nursery became a landscape nursery operation and remained so until 1992. In the ‘70s, Mike, grandson of Ernest, started more container and less field production. By 1980, field production had ceased. Then, in 1992, landscape operations were stopped and the nursery became a container growing wholesale and retail operation. In 1993 Larry Hemming, the 4th generation, joined the firm. Currently Larry's daughter Rosalie, the 5th generation, works part time in the summer and on weekends.
   Today we are the last retail nursery in Talbot County, still growing all the old favorites and those new and exciting plants that do well here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Available is a full range of Encore Azaleas, Crepe Myrtles, English Boxwood, Forsythia, English, American, Japanese and Hybrid Hollies, Endless Summer Hydrangea, Blushing Bride Hydrangea, Knock Out Roses, Nandina, Kaleidoscope Abelia, Lilacs, many perennials and too many other varieties to list.  We can help you select the proper trees and shrubs for shoreline and wetlands mitigation projects in a law abiding and economical way.
