Beyond our small front lawn lies more than 4 acres of a botanical garden-style nursery that is brimming with a vast selection of plants, accents, containers and display gardens. Shop under the shade of mature trees and enjoy the assistance of our experienced staff.

Started from bare ground in 1989, the Aurora location has grown into a garden oasis for all who visit. The trees are maturing and the gardens are thriving. Our gift shop is located in a historical landmark — a 19th-century farmhouse that we moved to the property in 2000. Special attention is given to children with play areas and child-friendly gardens to help them develop an appreciation for nature.
Our 18-acre Aurora location is also home to our production facilities where we grow most of our perennials, annuals, herbs, vegetable plants and mums for both locations — making our plants very locally grown!
The Growing Place in Aurora is located on Montgomery Road, two blocks north of Ogden Avenue and 10 minutes west of the Fox Valley Mall if you are traveling from the east. If you’re traveling from the west, we are only 5 minutes east of the Route 30/Route 34 intersection.
