Shopping for Native Plants

How to Shop for Native Plants (PDF, ~84 KB).

Our list of Native Plant Sources, lists nurseries and other plant vendors that have indicated that they sell plants native to our region.

We have a Shopper's Protest Card you can download and take with you when you go plant shopping. You can give these to the nursery growers to help to enourage them to grow the native plants you want, or to inform them that certain plants are invasive.

    • La Plata Farmer’s Market
    Sponsor: Charles County Master Gardeners

    La Plata Farmer’s Market at the parking lot on Talbot Street.  

    Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your garden by buying healthy plants that are great for the environment. Come and shop for perennials, native plants, vegetables, and herbs. Learn how to make a “potato basket” and how to grow lettuce in a lettuce box. Nothing tastes as good as something that you have grown yourself!

    In addition, we will have an “Ask the Master Gardener” plant clinic where we can respond to gardening and horticulture issues. We will also have a “Bay-Wise” booth to educate about sustainable horticulture practices for your landscape and vegetable gardens. For Charles County citizens, we can tell you how you can save 50% off your annual Stormwater Remediation (WPRF) fee by getting your property “Bay-Wise” certified free of charge.

    Visit us on facebook to learn more: or contact Charles County Master Gardener Coordinator Kaitlyn Baligush at or 301-934-5402 x200.
