The Eastern Shore of Virginia was influenced by the region's rich agricultural heritage and the family's dedication to nurturing plants and providing a welcoming environment for their customers. Maplewood Gardens captured their values in the care they took to make sure their plants were ready to be enjoyed by many others. The nursery closed down and took some years for the site to be turned into a wedding/event venue by the family that started it all.
