Thanks, Potomac, for Sixteen Terrific Years!

Behnke Nursery PotomacOn June 10th, 2014, we announced to the staff at our Garden Center and Florist at Potomac that we will be moving back home to our flagship garden center in Beltsville as the key to our long-term plan to “grow” the company. This was not an easy decision, but we think it’s the best way to offer the selection and ambiance that our customers expect.

I would like to welcome back to Beltsville those of you that used to shop here, and invite those of you that have never been to our Beltsville garden center to come and visit. We are located on Route One in Beltsville, just a few minutes from both the Beltway and the ICC. You will find a wide selection of plants and garden products, plenty of parking, and a pleasant atmosphere where you can shop for foliage and blooming gift plants, flowering annuals and herbs under cover in any weather. And of course lots of perennials, trees and shrubs in the “great outdoors.” Our garden center in Beltsville is one on the largest in the county and we would love to share it with you.

My grandparents Rose & Albert Behnke started their garden center on the Beltsville site in 1930. We are looking forward to celebrating 85 years of gardening in the Washington area next year. We know you won’t be disappointed with a visit to Behnke’s at Beltsville.

Starting June 12, 2014 our Garden Center at Potomac will be having a MOVING SALE with all of our merchandise at the Potomac store only at least 20% off (Excluding: Propane, Walpole Woodworkers® items, Carol Allen’s Orchid Repotting services and materials, Behnke Professional Planting Service and job materials, Delivery Services, items transfered in from our Beltsville store and special orders.). This sale will be for product that is in stock at the Potomac location only and does not include anything of Walpole Outdoors, which is an independent company with which we share the property at Potomac. No special orders, no transfers from Beltsville.

Thanks again for your many years of support at our Potomac location. We’ve enjoyed working with you and hope to see you again soon. We’ll be at Potomac through the Fourth of July weekend, and hope you stop by for a visit. All of your Potomac benefits and warranties, including membership in our Garden Club, will follow you to Beltsville.

Stephanie Fleming was raised at Behnke’s Nurseries in Beltsville. Her Mom, Sonja, was one of Albert & Rose Behnke’s four children. She was weeding from the moment she could walk and hiding as soon as she was old enough to run, so many weeds, so little time. Although she quickly learned how to pull out a perennial and get taken off of weed pulling duty.
