We have what it takes to be your only plant material supplier


At Abby Farms we are proud to say “we have what it takes” to be your sole supplier of plant material.

Our staff consists of growers, logistics specialists, plant nutritionists, and sales experts. It is our staff that gives us what it takes to support our customers. Our unique blend of staff, with varying backgrounds of expertise is what sets us apart from being just another nursery.

The staff at Abby Farms has the drive, dedication, and desire that ultimately transfers over as quality to all facets of our nursery operation. It is our desire that fuels our growers and plant nutritionists to cultivate the highest quality plant material, it’s the dedication of our logistics specialists to keeping things organized and professional, and it is the drive of our sales experts to present our material to our customers in a honest, friendly and professional manner. Any nursery that tells you growing plants is their main objective, does not have what it takes. The main objective of a successful reputable nursery should always be to grow and enhance customer relations first and grow plants second. That does not mean growing second rate plants rather it means growing first rate customer relations first and growing first rate plants second.

At Abby Farms, we want to know our customers so well that when they call to place an order, they can feel secure in knowing they will get the same consistent quality plant material delivered to them as if they went to the nursery and tagged it themselves.  Knowing our customers to this degree helps establish what material they are looking for and what we should be growing to offer them in order to remove the burden of calling multiple vendors to find material for one job, paying more freight than necessary, and all the while hoping that the quality all matches up. It is always easier to help someone when you care enough to know what they need.

Yes growing over 300,000 shrubs, 120,000 perennials and grasses, and over 400 acres of B&B trees qualifies us as a nursery but what solidifies us as a great nursery is our dedication and commitment to our customers with a one on one basis. We strongly disagree with the “cookie cutter” “one size fits all” approach so many nurseries employ as “customer service”. To us customer service is not handling complaints or fixing problems, it is knowing our customer’s needs so well that there are no problems to solve in the first place.

In closing we at Abby Farms want to say thank you to our customers and want you to know we are here to support you in order to help your business grow as you help ours grow. Together we can be successful in achieving our goals. Our staff is always available to help out, just give us a call.

Have your cake and eat it too?

Are you tired of being told you can’t have your cake and eat it too?  Here at Abby Farms not only will you get to eat your cake we will even give you ice cream to go with it!

When other vendors are blowing out the candles on their B&B harvesting and sales with summer looming, Abby Farms is still serving the main course.

By holding our trees in above ground mulch beds with heat busting drip irrigation we are able to provide you with our high quality sustainably grown trees year round.  If that’s not enough to get the confetti flying  we also have over 10,000 container trees of over 20 varieties.  Still not enough for ya? How about 150,000 shrubs and 84,000 perennials with a side of 6,000 grasses. Now that’s a` la mode!

We have 3 of our own tractor trailers delivery daily along with our fleet of stake body trucks so you can be sure you will be served no matter how big or small of a slice you want.

So don’t let other vendors leave you blindfolded taking swings at that magical piñata of availability, just give our sales rep Doug Miller a call 240-388-0700 or send him an email for our current availability and let him know what you want on your plate.

Our Grass is Legal


Here at Abby Farms we have expanded our grass lineup in response to customer suggestions. Now you can get all of the plant material you need for your job without having to go to the trouble of finding multiple dealers.

Not only is our grass legal but it is also sustainably grown , so you can be sure no matter how you use it your customers will be highly satisfied knowing it contains no toxic chemicals. Our sustainably grown grass has a higher survival rate in the landscape because its growing buzz wasn’t harshened by being shot up with toxic chemicals and other adulterants typically used by traditional growers.

We are offering our grass in two sought after sizes, a one gallon and the big bold yet modestly priced two gallon. This size combination will allow our customers to simply accent a planting with a stately one gallon or put their grass right out in the spotlight with a high impact two gallon.

Please if you need help with your grass use give our friendly sales rep Doug Miller a call 240-388-0700 or drop him an email and he can provide you with a list of our current availability and get you the help you need fast.

Don’t let your next job go up in smoke because you wasted all your time coordinating material deliveries and pickups from multiple dealers. Abby Farms will be your go to dealer for all the plant material you need and our high quality & customer service will be sure to keep you coming back to get your fix.

Expanded Perennial Offerings for Spring 2016


Here at Abby Farms we are perennially working to provide our customers with the best selection of plant material in the Mid-Atlantic region.

That is why this year we have expanded our perennial offerings for 2016. We have added several varieties we have not offered before and also increased our production numbers of the tried and true staples our customers depend on.  Our newly expanded perennial lineup will allow more of our customers to source all their plant material needs for their entire job from one source, eliminating the headaches of multiple deliveries to jobsites or the time consuming multiple nursery stops to gather all of your plant material.

In addition to bulking up our production numbers and expanding our variety we have also refined our pricing for 2016 to be very competitive in the perennial arena. Give our sales rep Doug Miller a call 240-388-0700 or send him an email for more information about current availability and pricing.

Some of the new perennials Abby Farms will be growing for 2016 include black scallop ajuga which has been a long time staple for those shady areas. Also new on our list will be pink lightning ajuga. Pink lightning features very nicely variegated foliage and bright pink flowers on small spikes. This plant is hardy and brightens up those shady areas needing a vibrant ground cover that’s not boring.

We have also added Marshalls Delight bee balm. With its nice pink flowers and resistance to powdery mildew and rust, this perennial is a great grower and dependably hardy.

Husker red digitalis has been very popular and asked for often so this year we are pleased to be growing this beardtongue variety. With nice bright white flowers and dark foliage this plant is a real head turner.

We at Abby Farms are committed to growing sustainably and as a result our plants are healthier and survive better once planted in the landscape when compared to plants grown the old fashioned or “traditional” way. Give our perennials a chance to enhance your next job and you wont be disappointed.

December 2015 Farm News

December is always bittersweet.  We say goodbye to many of our seasonal workers, but know that we will see them again next year.  While many people in the landscape industry look at winter as a time to slow down, Abby Farms remains consistently busy.

Our container crews have been busily covering nearly 200 hoop houses, including 12 new houses.  Containers plants are consolidated into the hoop houses before they are enclosed. Placing our container plants in hoop houses acts like a mulch bed.  It protects them from the elements, insures excellent survival, and gives us faster flushing plants in the spring.

Field production crews are hard at work digging trees to meet the industry’s demands.  Fields are rarely open for a week before the nutrient management team prepares the field for planting, production team plants the new trees, and a cover crop is planted.

With so many high quality trees, shrubs, and perennials being grown at Abby Farms, take advantage of our early ordering program.  Our product selection team is already setting aside plants pre-sold for the spring planting season.  Contact Doug Miller for more information on this program at or 301-782-9077.  Even better, contact Doug and stop by for a tour.

The nutrient management team is busily scouting fields looking for overwintering pests, preparing fields, taking soil samples, and applying micronutrient applications where needed.  Field reports are more thoroughly examined with an eye towards prevention.  With our goal to be sustainable, pest prevention and increasing plant health are our top priorities.

Our motto of “Pioneering Sustainable Horticulture” has caught the eye of several media outlets.  Look for us in an upcoming issue of American Farm.
