Plant Club Testimonials

We love to hear that you love the Plant Club!

I just wanted to thank you for making the North Shore Plant Club available to local residents, and for all that you do to run the organization so efficiently. My family and I have been amazed by the wide variety of plants we are able to purchase, and the high-quality plants we have received! It's like Christmas morning when I get your text saying that our plants are ready for pickup! We had a busy weekend of planting a butterfly garden, all thanks to you. It's official --- we are addicted to the North Shore Plant Club!


thank you very much out of this world plants. I can’t believe they’re real they’re so beautiful and so reasonably priced Jen for the quality oh my goodness thank you

JG, Lake Forest

Thank you for everything you’re all doing. I cannot tell you HOW AMAZING my flowers and shrubs are doing, the quality is incredible! I usually replace my flowers in my planters for fall but I don’t know if I’ll have the heart. My sunpatiens are so gorgeous and HUGE!

KH, Wilmette

Plants look great! Wish I had ordered more stuff!!


Talk about fun! I'm so glad you're doing this... can't wait to talk with you about it more when I pick up my plants.

CF, Winnetka

The driver called ahead and came right after 7:00. Such a big help on a hot day. We were able to finish by lunchtime. Thank you! I'm newish to the area but you have an annual mulch customer for life. What a wonderful service.

AP, Evanston

Everything went very smoothly. I'm never buying bagged mulch again!

LA, Evanston

By the way, the Salvia was a lovely specimen, which I needed to replace one that I lost. This is the first year that I've participated in the garden club. Having gardened for about 40 years now, I can say that I'm very impressed with the stock that I received and with the incredible service that you provide. Thank you for all you do.


We appreciate all your work on the Plant Club. This is fantastic, thank you!

AG, Winnetka

Your range of plants is extensive, and it’s been fun to experiment with new things each year. Keep up the great work!

PS, Chicago

Omg. I'm obsessed with your mums. Joined your club and look forward to buying more plants. Thank you!!!

BW, Winnetka

The bedding mix looks and smells fantastic! So far, we have only filled the beds. Later, there will be endless wonders to share!

MS, Evanston

You guys are amazing the service you provide!!

LT, Glencoe

Thanks Leslie. The plants look great, and I keep getting more ideas from your website!

PS, Winnetka

You saved me nearly $1000 on my new boxwood hedge compared with what I would have spent at [redacted]!


Our garden looks so much better these days -- thanks to you and the NS Plant Club. We have been having a great time planting and enjoy seeing the beautiful flowers.

SK, Glencoe

The impatiens that I ordered from you were absolutely gorgeous! And the rose bushes are doing beautifully.


I'm so pleased with all my plants! The peonies are already starting to have nice buds, and the impatiens are nicer than the ones that I bought at the [redacted].


We wanted to write a quick note on how impressed we are by the club! We just got your delivery with a personal note and it warmed our hearts so much. It added to our feelings of absolute awe of everything that you have accomplished. I know you had huge numbers of orders this season but that never took away from the speedy, professional and fantastic customer service. To be honest, we have a theory that you guys must be a breed of super-humans to organize all that you have. Thank you for all your efforts and thank you for helping add beauty in this world through plants!


This spring I spent several days going to all the usual garden centers in the north shore to try to find a few specific plants. It turns out you have them all!


Our property just got a beautiful facelift! Thank you. You all are the best.

NP, Wilmette

WOW! These plants are amazing. The best quality I have seen in years. I am so impressed and all your hard work is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Please keep me on the list!

LH, Kenilworth

Thank you so much for starting this Plant Club. You are welcome to use me as a ringing endorsement of how terrific it is! My husband and I were just talking about the money we have saved, combined with the quality of the plants.

LM, Winnetka

Thanks for checking in! Yes, the delivery was great and the driver was. Amazing. He provided guidance on where to put the tarps to keep the dirt/mulch off the rocks in the alley. He was super careful with my garage (no damage) and quite patient.

Thank you for coordinating all this!

NL, Skokie

Thanks and we would like to continue to support this venture. Plants are way too expensive and I hope this solution is successful!

SK, Lake Forest

Thank you so very much for making gardening even more wonderful. I look forward to gardening with you next spring.


Thank you so much for your help! They delivered it yesterday and it was so simple. If anyone asks about this experience, please convey that I thought it was even easier than doing it myself in the past. It certainly was a quick date of delivery. The discount was nice as well!

PS, Deerfield

Been spreading my mulch around all day! Thanks again, been telling everyone about how wonderful being a part of the plant club has been!

RS, Evanston

This was quite a savings — at least $600. My sister got me into your site. Such a great idea!

SJ, Northfield

The mulch looks great! The driver called when he was 15 min away, arriving around 12:45. He was efficient and careful when unloading the truck. Most of the mulch landed on the tarp, we just didn't know how much space it would take on the driveway so we overlapped the two sheets a bit too much. We have spread out almost half already! Would definitely order through you again.

CL, Glenview

What a beautiful product. I’m so so excited about the plant quality and continue to water my outrageously beautiful mums that I got from you.

Thanks again for making the plants available last night. These are in amazing shape and are going to look great. Thanks for all you do for the club!

DO, Winnetka

Thank you Leslie for the beautiful Black Eyed Susan and Purple Coneflowers. Our Seniors club members at the Vernon Hills Village Hall are excited to plant these flowering natives in their backyards. And the literature you provided on the plants has been helpful to us all. Thank you for being a great community partner.

Vernon Hills

Thank you so much for all of the work you are doing (and have done) with the plant club! I am truly impressed--and grateful.

KM, Winnetka

The impatiens that I ordered from you were absolutely gorgeous! And the rose bushes are doing beautifully.

KJ, Winnetka

Super happy with the quality of the product and delivery was perfect. Thank you. Looking forward to my plants next week!

Limited Availability

We try very hard to source exactly what you’d like, but sometimes growers run out of plants! While this variety is a great deal at the price shown, we know that it has limited availability. If you want the plant even if it might be more expensive, or in a different size or quantity -- after you place your order, just send us a quick note at Then, we’ll try to get you some version of this from one of our growers. And if we can’t get it from anywhere, of course, we’ll send a refund!

Field-Grown vs. Greenhouse-Grown Plants

Plants which are well-adapted to our local climate are most often field-grown (outside). Field-grown plants are generally cheaper and have the advantage of already somewhat acclimated to our cold winters, but that means they’re not artificially far along in the spring and tend to bloom at the normal time in our area.

Spring annuals and tender perennials are typically grown in Greenhouses so they can be ready and luxurious exactly when customers want them. Some perennials are also “forced” into early bloom in greenhouses. In May, there can be a very big difference between field-grown and greenhouse-grown plants of the same type. The latter typically look good right away (so they’re a great choice where that’s important), but we typically pay a premium for it.
