Good enough to find plants that can not be found anywhere.

Aaron Blanchard

Fun time painting pots for mother's day.

Samantha Baldyga

I've been getting my vegetable plants from here the past few years. The workers are always friendly and willing to help. They have a sandpit and wooden train for the kiddos too. Our raspberry bushes we planted last year are coming back nicely this year.


I love this place the kids and I have made a bunch of fun loving memories as they have free days for children, but this place allows for sitting on very well placed benches, paths are kept clean so no falling hazards here, plus it's almost peaceful like a zen Garden

I live within walking distance of the Growing Place and each fall fo the last few years I have walked over with my children, I have an in home childcare, and we visit the fall decoration areas. It's a good place to take some cute fall photos. There is a pumpkin contest and other things to see. There is a sand pit, wooden train, fairy garden, large wooden pumpkin puzzle and other things for the children to explore. The staff have always been helpful and pleasant. They do have a public restroom but they do not have any sort of concession stand like some places similar to this do. Overall, if you are in the area it's worth taking a look or when they are having an event would be better.

Tons of plants, supplies & knick knacks for your garden.

Brian Bustard

Dangerously awesome...

The people who work at the Growing Place should be blessed for sharing what they know. One woman steered me away from trying to grow cherry tomatoes in pots (they get to be 7 feet long!), and another gave me information about the watering needs of five plants I intended to plant in one pot. The million bells weren't going to like the same amount of water that the sweet potato vine needs. Thanks for making my growing season more successful!

Molly Timothy

HUGE SELECTION! Very friendly staff!

I couldn't believe how many options they have. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help.

Gary Snider

Get out your checkbook - on the expensive side for plants, but great layout and displays, fantastic selection, and plenty of friendly, helpful staff on hand.

Michael P. Hill

Really enjoyed working with Mary, the designer, but the whole process seemed disorganized, disjointed and not customer focused. At times the staff, the “landscape coordinator” in particular, didn’t even seem to want our business and put up barriers during the design process. After completing the initial form, which the staff seemed to treat as more important than the ACTs, it didn’t seem like anyone actually read much of what was on it. It didn’t get passed along to the designer or other team members after we submitted it and instead we kept having to repeat information that was on it to various staff through the process. We were also told they can’t accept emailed or cell phone photos, so we would either need to print them out or bring a laptop or tablet. A minor annoyance, but still it seemed like they could have taken the time to forward the designer the photos instead of putting all the responsibility on us. After waiting 10 days after putting a deposit down for them to “gather the plants” and ignored emails asking for status, finally had to call and ask for a manager to intervene and installation happened just a few days later. The landscape manager only called a few days after looking for payment and then called a few days after that to let us know that some plants had been substituted, something the installer already went over with us. The third party installer used, Scenic Landscape, was great!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Every plant you could imagine.

Mark Moore

Word in advance.... they are going to be pricier than the big box Lowe's/Home Depot retailers, however, you get what you pay for, and what you get is more than fair versus what you pay. Example; we went here to get portalaca that were not available at Lowe's. They were much bigger, more mature and much hardier than what we remembered getting last year at the big box store. Additionally they have a wide selection and knowledgeable personnel that are helpful answering questions and providing suggestions. If you buy something here, you can count on it prospering once you plant it.

Jo Dresden


This place is adorable with an amazing selection of plants, pots and accents for your garden. Staff is friendly, knowledgable and happy to help. Love this gem!

Laurel Gehrke

Jamie Rudder

Very knowledgeable, helpful, & friendly people. Also great prices this time of year!

Monika Roemmling

Hier findet man für jeden Geschmack etwas. Man kann sich gut beraten lassen, welche Pflanzen im Garten oder Vorgarten miteinander harmonieren und welche Pflege nötig ist. Es wird auch immer wieder angeboten, PflanzeGefäße eigenständig oder mit Hilfe von einem versierten Gärtner zu gestalten. Das ist auch etwas für Kinder.

Michael Young

Nice selection

Pavel Snopok

Never a problem, always super nice and very helpful! Great warranty (I know what I'm talking about, I had to use it a couple of times), great membership program and discounts. Both locations are gorgeous, plenty of parking except on the biggest event days (and even then it's mostly a matter of a two-minute walk). Nice selection of plants - if they have them, you can plant them.


Great selection and beautiful setup


A little pricey and they didn’t carry everything I wanted. Nice layout, everything looked healthy. They even have a play area for kids.

Roz Anomaly

Huge selection and very helpful staff.

The reason I purchased my annuals here was because I didn’t want to drive to Wascos in St.Charles, so this year will be the last time I come to the growing place, in my opinion the employees are rude and looks like they prefer their regular customers its very uninviting I just had an overall bad experience.. I have a recommendation, you should rope areas customers shouldn’t go to.

Larry Smith

Wonderful nursery full of flowers, bushes, and trees. Find plants that you won't see elsewhere and wonderfully helpful and knowledgable employees. I will be going back.

Amazing selection of plants and everything you need to create a landscaped masterpiece!


I randomly discovered The Growing Place today, I will never shop anywhere again for my landscaping and flowers again. Bought a tree, the gentleman was amazingly helpful and answered all of my questions... and I asked a lot!

Was excited to show my mother this nursery during her annual birthday visit, as she is an avid gardener, and is preparing to do landscaping on our family's vacation home...Instead, I was shocked at the disrespectful and unprofessional manner in which we were treated by one of the staff. What started off as something relaxing ended up being so inhospitable. Truly disappointing, and shameful to those who seemed to work hard to make the experience welcoming.
