greenhousesShady Hill Gardens was started in 1974 at its original greenhouses in Batavia. The original greenhouses were built in the early 1900s and were used as a cut flower growing facility. By the time Shady Hill Gardens had begun its journey in 1974, the greenhouses had been vacant for numerous years. Those houses were soon modified to grow different crops, on top of being used for retail shopping.

After the spring of 2007, Shady Hill Gardens was moved to the greenhouses in Elburn. The facility in Elburn is state of the art and forwards many efficiency features. These features help make it enjoyable for the customers and staff.

Shady Hill Gardens’ Greenhouses

Here at Shady Hill Gardens, we have gained a national reputation as geranium specialists. For over 30 years, we have been breeding and growing geraniums of every of color, shape, size and scent you can imagine. Geraniums may be our calling, but we produce a multitude of bedding plants, herbs, vegetables, perennials, hanging baskets and finished planters each spring.

Growing our own plants that we sell is what separates us from some of our competitors. The plants that are purchased are locally grown and you can choose fresh ones right out of the greenhouses. Our plants are not handled outside of the Northern Illinois environment before the point of sale. With our experience and knowledge, we can give you insights and details into our plants because we grow them.
