Discounts & Specials


You’ll be glad to know that some local garden centers offer discounts and specials of various sorts. 


Merrifield Garden Center - While they do not offer discounts to garden club members, they do offer discounts of 10% to senior citizens (55 and over), 10% to military personnel, and 15% to master gardeners.  They have 3 locations, in Merrifield, Fair Oaks and Gainesville, all in Virginia.


Fragers Garden Center - . Between March 15 and June 30, 2016, they are going to do a trial promotion for CHGC members. We will get 15% off plants and garden supplies (soils, mulches, fertilizer, etc.) at the garden store (not the other branches of Fragers.) This is for cash or credit card payments only, not applicable when using one's house account.  They are now located at 1230 Pennsylvania Ave SE.


Ginko Gardens -  For a long time, they have offered a discount to our members (10% on "green goods"--i.e. plants).  For now, just say that you are a member (the Club is reviewing options for a card that you can use in the future). There is one location on the Hill at 911 11th Street SE.


Homestead Gardens - While they do not offer individual discounts to garden club members, they do have their own membership rewards program which you can sign up for.  They are located in Davidsonville, Maryland.


The Behnke Nurseries, Co. - You can join the Behnke Garden Club. It’s FREE to join. Benefits include members-only specials and their weekly email newsletter.  They are located at 11300 Baltimore Ave, Beltsville MD.


Many thanks to Anthony Pontorno, Jennifer Cate and Ed Peterman for surveying these establishments.  If you are aware of other discounts around town, please send a note to Joe Purdy who will include your information on the website and in future newsletters.
