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!

The hostas you delivered last week are amazing. Can't imagine anything better from any of the retail shops around here!

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

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.

HS, Wilmette

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.

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

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

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!

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.

Northfield


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

KJ, Winnetka


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

Winnetka


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

HM, Winnetka

Thank you for bringing the hydrangeas to our house! I was so delighted to find them on the front porch because I did not see your email. We really appreciate this type of service and more.

Glencoe


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

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

AG, Winnetka

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!

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 help@northshoreplantclub.com. 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.
