  These are the sweet days of spring that we have all been waiting for. Sunny days, cool nights and plants just jumping out of the ground. It is a great time of the year to enjoy your garden and the outdoors in general. With the cooler weather recently, many gardeners are still getting started doing their planting and we have fresh, great looking plants to help you out with that.

  Again this year at Shady Hill, gardeners can bring their planters to the greenhouse and plant them here. You will definitely end up with the correct number of plants and we will even sweep up when you are done. Here’s how it works.

Container Planting

  We fill your pots with fresh, nutrient rich soil and you choose potted, growing plants from the greenhouse to fill your containers. You are charged for the plants that you pick out and plant, as well as a charge for the soil. This is the fee:

Containers 12" across and less: $3.50 each
Containers over 12" and under 17" across: $4.50 each
Containers 17" across and over: $.35 per inch

  We will give you some basic ideas and instructions if you would like or we can just let you wander the greenhouse to choose the plants that you want and get your hands in the soil. We’re happy to help you put them in your car when you finish.

Our current hours are:

Monday through Saturday, 9 am until 5 pm
Sunday, 11 am until 4 pm

Wednesday and Thursday Specials

  We have two, ongoing specials throughout the season. The first is our Weekly Wednesday Special that is back again this year. This is a special for each Wednesday only and it changes from week to week. It will be good all day on each Wednesday and we will post the item and price here each week.

For Wednesday, May 27, our special will be on all of the 4.5” pots of Verbena, Million Bells and Petunias that we grow. There is a wide range of colors in all of these plants. Regularly 6.99 each, they will be 3.99 for this Weekly Wednesday Special. This sale is only for Wednesday, May 27, 2015. It’s a great time to add some gorgeous color to your planters.

  The second is our Thursday Perennial Day where all of our one gallon pots of perennial plants are 20% off for the day. These are the plants that come back year after year in your garden and may not have as long a blooming period as annuals, but the trade off is that they return each spring.

  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 jheidgen@sbcglobal.net or Matt at mheidgen@sbcglobal.net .
