Reds Garden Center has been Chicago's north suburban source for garden help and landscaping services since 1968. As a family owned and operated nursery,
we at Reds are committed to providing you with the highest quality plants and materials to ensure your gardening success.
With fourteen greenhouses and acres of off-site growing area, we are able to supply plants hardy to this area. Our retail center carries the supplies you'll need to create or maintain your perfect garden, everything from soil amendments and tools to an extensive assortment of decorative pots, statuary, fountains, garden gifts, and home décor.
Overwelmed by a garden out of control? Need a few "how to" tips and suggestions? Give our garden coach a call. For a small fee, our garden coach will come out and evaluate your garden with your specific concerns in mind. We can provide advice, a helping hand, and coordinate the resources needed to make your garden dream a reality! Call today to make an appointment!
Color Your Garden Autumn
The return of cooler weather is a good time to refresh annual containers with cool-season favorites such as pansies, ornamental cabbage and kale,
and fall-blooming asters. One of the most popular plants for a fall garden is the mum. Visit Reds and you'll see rows upon rows of mums
bursting with blooms in a variety of colors, sizes, shapes, and types. When everything else is brown and gray, these are the flowers that will fight through
the frost. And speaking of color, spring flowering bulbs are in stock. Now is the time to buy iris, tulips, crocus, daffodils and many others for the best selection and
glorious color next spring.
Is there a spot on your property in need of a little sprucing up? Whether you would like to add a shade tree or shrub to your yard, mid-September through mid-October is a great time to do it! When you plant a tree or shrub now it will begin growing new roots and will continue growing roots until the ground freezes. When the ground thaws in the spring, that tree or shrub will be ready to grow!
Ideas and Inspirations for Home Décor
Everything you need for fall decorating is already in stock! We carry a large selection of fun and spooky decorations as well as the more traditional pumpkins,
gourds, scarecrows, wheat sheaves, Indian corn, and hay bales.
Did you have an issue last year with pumpkins staining your concrete steps or deck? Did they leave a nasty ring on your new brick driveway? Then resin pumpkins from the Gift Shop at Reds are the perfect decoration for your home. They won't stain, and since they're resin you can leave them out as long as you like!
It's Time to Think Firewood
Now that the days are shorter and the cooler weather is finally here, it's time to think firewood. Patio fireplaces and chimeneas are perfect for fall entertaining and make your backyard a fun place to gather round in the evening. Just about any seasoned
fireplace wood can be used in a chiminea. Here at Reds we have oak, cherry, hickory, maple, and birch as well as the piñon wood recommended by chiminea
owners for its pleasant pine aroma that helps repel mosquitoes and other flying insects. Stop in or call us today for firewood scheduling and pricing. And remember, we can deliver to
most surrounding suburbs.
We hope you'll find our website a valuable resource and we welcome your feedback. We still have a lot of information to add, so please keep visiting us, both online and at our nursery!
