Gethsemane Garden Center in Chicago, IL

Took a walk yesterday to the Gethsemane Garden Center with my sister. The place is a lot bigger than I thought it was and they also have a gift shop where you can buy kitchenware, home good, cards, etc. They do have a pretty nice sized parking lot, so it’s convenient to drive if you plan to buy a lot of plants or heavy planters.

They have a huge plant selection to choose from and even had some super old bonsai and large cacti. Some of the plant prices get expensive, but I doubt you can find some of these plants just anywhere. The gift shop was a pleasant surprise and had a lot of cute goodies. We didn’t even realize they had a whole store full of non-garden related items. They had some really cool dishes made with cured fruit by a local artist that were super unique. I thought about getting one made with cured lemons, but I ended up only buying a dinosaur sticker book for my niece – she’s a four year old going through a major dinosaur obsession at the moment.

I would definitely go back for the gift shop alone. Like I said, they had some super cute items that would make for unique gifts. Some of the plants would also be great house warming gifts. I’d also go back if I needed something quick for our garden and it’s easier to walk over here than take a drive to Home Depot or Lowe’s.
