  The greenhouses are filled right now with poinsettias that are changing to their brilliant colors for the holidays. You will find fresh, fragrant wreaths, roping and other assorted greens to decorate your home for Christmas.

  Last year, our workshops for gardeners to make a greens arrangement for outdoor use, were so popular that we are going to have a few more in 2015. These are the dates of the workshops:

2015 Class Dates

Saturday, November 21, 10 am
Tuesday, November 24, 10 am
Saturday, November 28, 10 am
Thursday, December 3, 10 am
Saturday, December 5, 10 am

   We will supply you with a nursery pot to drop into a pot, urn or planter at your home. We have a great mix of evergreens, as well as an assortment of sticks, twigs and branches. The cost is $44.00 per pot and that includes a 1.5 gallon nursery pot and all the ingredients for your arrangement. Larger pots can be made for an additional cost. Call Shady Hill at 630.365.5665 to make a reservation or e-mail Joe at

  On Tuesday, December 1, please join us for our annual Poinsettia Glow. From 4 pm until 6 pm, we will light hundreds of candles among the poinsettias and as the sun sets, the greenhouse will glow. Enjoy some snacks and refreshments as you take in this beautiful sight!

   Stop out to Shady Hill sometime in the next few weeks for a treat for the eyes with a greenhouse we have filled with thousands of colorful poinsettias.

  If you have any questions or need any information about anything going on at Shady Hill, please call us at 630-365-5665 or e-mail Joe at or Matt at .
