Favorite Plants

1.My Favorite Herb is the scented curry plant, Helichrysum italicum. This plant smells like curry which, is my favorite spice. Regrettably, this plant has little culinary value, but did I mention how great it smells?
2.My favorite shrub would be any of the Abelia sp. shrubs. These hardy shrubs have the cutest flowers, are easy to care for and deer aren’t that crazy about them!
3.My favorite vegetable would be the heirloom cucumbers we offer. Specifically the Boothby’s Blonde as these blonde little beauties are sweet as can be and can be eaten straight off the vine.
4.My favorite ornamental tree is a tie between the Golden Rain Tree (Koelreuteria paniculata) which flowers these really cool yellow flowers in Summer and the Star Magnolia (Magnolia stellata) as it blooms these beautiful white flower in March signifying Spring is on its way.

A few words about us…..

Bowens Maryland MD

Bowens Maryland

Bowensville Farm and Nursery has a very interesting story….

The town of Bowensville is not exactly found on a map. In fact, it represents the village of Bowens, Maryland. In 1882, a parcel of land belonging to James and Mary Hutchins was sold to Silas Bowen who built the original store, Bowen’s Store & Post Office. Silas Bowen later sold the parcel and land back to James & Mary Hutchins and on March 4, 1887, postal service to Bowens, MD began with James Hutchins listed as the first postmaster. During this time period, there was at least one school, a physician’s office and a mill. The post office expanded to include a general store and was quintessential to life in Bowens. Many gathered to socialize, buy dry goods, send and receive mail and hear politicians give their stump speeches. On April 30, 1957, postal service was discontinued, however the store remained open for some time afterwards. Today, the original post office building still stands and is registered with the Maryland Historical Society (CT-105). For decades, locals have referred to Bowens as Bowensville, or merely “The Village”. The farm the greenhouse operates from resides near the center of “The Village”.
