 DHT Nursery is currently in its second season at 91 Guthrie Lane, Frostburg (Garrett County).
Dale and Heather Guthrie started the business last May, specializing in a variety of plants.
The name for the nursery is a combination of the first letters of the couple’s first names and that of their dog, Teal’c.
“It’s different and unique, like our plants,” Heather said.
They also have a son named Justin.
Heather Guthrie noted that they have a background of being hobbyists at gardening.
“We decided years back to buy seeds and try growing the plants ourselves instead of buying them and every year kept doing it and trying new and different kinds of plants,’ she said. “Plus it gave us a chance to do something together.”
She stated that they like to have new and different plants that other greenhouses around the area don’t carry so that customers can try new things. At the same time, they have basic plants that customers usually buy.
“We offer annuals, herbs, perennials and vegetable plants,” she said. “Some different plants we offer are malabar, various spinaches, Mexican sour gherkins, Armenian cucumbers, luffa gourds, mustard plants and a variety of sunflower plants.”
Heather is currently a full-time homemaker, and Dale works as a project manager at Beitzel Corp.
Both grew up in Garrett County, and they met on a blind date 20 years ago. They have been married for 18 years.
Heather said they have hopes that the business can grow in the future.
“Things are going good for us,” she said. “We’re still trying to get our name out there and are meeting new people all the time. We enjoy talking and interacting with all our customers.”
