Visit Bona Terra at Holly Hill

Come see our nursery and meet Jeremy Tidd!

Jeremy is the owner of Bona Terra and has been designing, maintaining, and growing native plants for over 20 years. With the Bona Terra Team, he has designed and installed thousands of rain gardens and native plantings, and maintained dozens of urban native landscapes. Allow Jeremy to guide you through the process of plant selection and share his expertise growing native plants.

We offer guided visits or order pick-up at our native plant nursery at Holly Hill. Enjoy a one-on-one tour with Jeremy, who will answer your questions, tell you about our peat-free soil and fertilizer made from invasive plants and fish, and the various ways we are working to reduce our ecological and carbon footprint while producing high quality native plants with local genetics. He will help you choose the right native plant for your needs and walk you through your purchase. Talk shop, learn about native plants, and ask questions!

What to Bring

To help us give you the best guidance for your specific site, bring a plant list of which species you are looking for, and what plants you already have. Bring photos of your yard or garden, and come prepared with specific questions you want to ask. If you’ve ordered from us before, please return your pots. We love reusing pots!

As a part of our continued effort to protect our customers and team members, we ask all visitors to please bring a face mask and to be prompt in their arrival so that we can accommodate all visitors. Our nursery is also a residence, so nursery visits are by appointment only.

We do not have restrooms available.

If you arrive early, stop by Chesapeake Market for snacks and coffee just 5 minutes away on Lake Shore Drive. Our nursery is also just a short drive (approximately 10 minutes) to both North Beach and Chesapeake Beach. Head on over to explore the local restaurants, shops, and attractions.
