Saturday, Sept 25 and Sunday, Sept 26
We are always so excited about our Fall Festival — hundreds of mums in many sizes, colors and bloom times are ready for new homes! And fall decorating isn’t complete without pumpkins, corn stalks, straw bales, goards and scarecrows.
Also joining us with items for sale will be the City Bee Savers, who house bees on the back of the greenhouse property and their honey is phenomenal. The DuPage County Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions about plants, pollinators and to offer ideas for garden design. District 200 Transition Program will staff a table selling their jewelry and glass items, which are perfect for holiday gift giving.
And it just wouldn’t be fall without apple pies, caramel apple pies, apple cider doughnuts, taffy apples and apple cider. Thanks to our friends at Windy Acres Farm in Geneva and Sonny Acres in West Chicago, we will have their products on hand for your take home enjoyment. We look forward to seeing you!
May and Mother’s Day
The month we’ve all been waiting for! Warm sunshine, empty pots, bare spaces in the garden waiting for newcomers, veggie and herbs begging to be on your deck or patio…
We will have more than 600 varieties of plants, herbs, veggies, hanging baskets and succulents to fill your cart — what a great way to spend a morning or afternoon feeding your soul.
Remember Mom with some of our plants, gift items or gift certificates — we would love to see all of you soon!
My oh my how March has flown by! Pansies will be out for sale in just a couple short weeks and shortly after that the cold nights of Spring will be gone and we can start planting! Stay tuned for more happenings going on at the greenhouse!
