Eltzroth & Thompson Greenhouses

Eltzroth & Thompson Greenhouses Family owned greenhouse, founded in 1971, with locally grown plants! Following his graduation from the University of Maryland with a doctorate in horticulture, Dan Eltzroth, along with Carol Eltzroth, desired to start a greenhouse where growing quality plants was paramount.

Over 40 years later, Eltzroth & Thompson encompasses 2 sites, 5 โ€œgrowingโ€ acres, and 11 warmed greenhouses, and they continue to provide first rate customer service as well as quality plants. Today, their son, Jay, manages the day to day operations to ensure the highest standards are met.

I've done curb side twice and have had the best results. Thank you for still being there and for all your hard work!! We got our garden planted because of y'all. Nothing big but will keep us busy. Will be a repeat customer for sure.
Hey Lindsey Eltzroth! Peony is my favorite flower, I think those are best to plant in the fall. Do you all sell these? Is it best to invest in the bulbs or something already partially grown when you purchase? Iโ€™m not sure if those even do well in our are....any info?!
