At Radebaugh's, We are Always Growing
A Press Release from Radebaugh's Florist... Radebaugh Florist & Greenhouses has operated as a family business at its current location at 120 Burke Avenue in Towson for four generations over the last 90 years and will continue to do so for many years to come.
Over the past several years, we have made numerous changes to enhance our business as well as to provide our customers with a better overall sales experience. These changes include building a new state-of-the-art greenhouse at our wholesale farm in Northern Baltimore County, interior renovations to our floral shop, expanded merchandise lines and enhanced accessibility in our retail greenhouses. All of these changes are all part of our vision and plan to carry us into the next generation.
The surrounding communities and our loyal customers are familiar with our retail floral shop and greenhouses located on Burke Avenue. What many may not know, however, is that the Radebaugh Family operates wholesale greenhouses and a Design & Delivery Center on family-owned property located at the end of Aigburth Avenue. These greenhouses have been in operation since the 1940’s. While they hold a good bit of nostalgia for the family and our employees, they are certainly not the most energy efficient and require a great deal of maintenance. We have struggled for the past few years about what do to with the old greenhouses on that property. There was talk of residential development, but when Baltimore County began a search for open space, it seemed like it may be a better fit. An introduction of a new park at this location seems like a wonderful idea for the community that has supported our family and our business for decades.
As you may have read in the County’s press release and in various news articles, we are currently in the early stages of negotiations with the County; however we want to make it clear that any potential sale of the portion of the property located at the end of Aigburth Avenue will in no way affect any of our daily operations. In fact, the potential sale will help us facilitate our growth and further renovations in the near future.
The Radebaugh family has strong ties within the Baltimore community, especially in Towson, and we are here to stay. We look forward to seeing you in the greenhouses, filling your landscaping order, making your holiday tables complete with a gorgeous centerpiece, discussing your wedding flowers, brightening up your office entry, sending the perfect gift basket to a client, and celebrating our 100 year anniversary with you in 2024.

County to Purchase Radebaugh Property in Towson
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz announced that the County will acquire 2.5 acres to be used for passive parkland in Towson.
Baltimore County announced plans to purchase property owned by CM and JL Radebaugh Company, LLLP in conjunction with the Radebaugh Florist Shop at 120 E. Burke Avenue.
The property located off of Aigburth Avenue across from 120 E. Burke Avenue is currently used for warehouse and greenhouse space for the flower shop that will remain in operation. The County is purchasing the property with local Program Open Space funds for $1.1 million, a price determined by two independent appraisals. The property is zoned for residential development, and this purchase prevents the development of this area.
In April, Kamenetz announced a $4.2 million project to expand the Courthouse Gardens to Patriot Plaza between the Historic Courthouse and the Towson Courts building. The Patriot Plaza project will involve removing the existing fountain and concrete pavers, adding green space and a park setting. The 40-year old fountain was shut down last year after persistent leaking into county office space that is sited underneath the fountain.
“I am very pleased to be able to add more passive open space in Towson,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “Adding this space to the recently announced expansion of the Courthouse Gardens provides residents with two very nice areas to enjoy with family and friends right in the heart of Towson, and represents an investment of over $5 million for new parks in downtown Towson.”
“This is great news for the community,” said 5th District Councilman David Marks. “I want to thank County Executive Kamenetz and his staff for working so hard to complete this transaction, which will add open space in a densely-populated part of Greater Towson.”
The contract of sale is scheduled to go before the County Council at its legislative session on August 3.
