Heartwood Nursery and Garden/Gift Shop

Heartwood Nursery

Heartwood Nursery, Inc. is a woman-owned business founded in 1992. Heartwood Nursery and Garden/Gift Shop is owned and operated by Susan Hunter (formerly Dieter), who is recognized as a leading woody plant propagator and American holly specialist within the horticultural industry. Previously located in Monkton, MD, the entire nursery and propagation facilities moved to the main location near Stewartstown, PA, just over the Maryland line, where we sit on 70 beautiful acres.

We specialize in woody propagation and native woody propagation. A significant amount of our inventory is propagated on site using local seed and cutting sources.

Our inventory has been expanded to cover native groundcovers, a wider selection of native perennials, ferns and selected American and other holly liners.

We specialize in holly propagation and native reforestation.

The Garden Shop

In September 2010, we opened our Garden Shop, offering native plants and other beauties to the public, as well as a fine selection of local and handmade arts and crafts, garden supplies and furnishings, candles, jewelry, soaps and more.
