Spring Season


Visit us at the end of April when we reopen for the spring planting season! We've got the flowers and plants you are looking for! Just a reminder - Naperville greenhouse and Oswego greenhouse are the only locations open during the spring season. Typically, both greenhouses remain open through May and Naperville should remain open into  the start of June. Please call with questions or check online for hours!

To help you choose the best plants for YOUR yard, it's necessary to know the following information:

  • Where in your yard are you going to plant?
  • What are the dimensions of your flower bed? Of your pots or planters?
  • How many hours of sunlight does the planting area get?

What does full sun, part sun or part shade, and full shade mean?

According to our friends at Proven Winners®, full sun is 6 or more hours of direct sun per day. Part sun is 4-6 hours of direct sun per day, including some afternoon sun. Part shade is 4-6 hours of direct sun per day, mostly before midday.  Full shade is less than 4 hours of direct sun per day.
