Blumen Gardens, located in Chicago's far west suburb of Sycamore, is one of those fantastic finds that I'm hesitant to let others know about!

As a gardener, I keep coming back time and time again (is three times in one weekend too often?!) for unusual perennials, annuals, herbs, vines and other plants for my gardens. Make no mistake, if you want 20 flats of pink petunias, this is not the place you come -- here you'll find showcase plants that will have garden visitors talking, fantastic varieties of ferns, hostas and other common perennials, and just surprise after surprise (my fave: a Cobra Lily).

Their staff is beyond knowledgeable, they're passionate. They can help you plan out a garden, fill in a space and give advice on growing conditions, what to do when things go wrong and speak from their own vast experience.

I like that they also have classes and events -- the recent Crafts and Cocktails series was wonderful (painting a cast concrete leaf and green gardening a birdhouse roof). Such a variety of experiences.

I've been to wine tastings there, antique shows, wreath-tying in the the winter, their fall Blumenfest and many more. Everything keeps you coming back.

Be sure to visit their garden shop, full of statues, urns, garden art, gardening supplies, bulbs (a great and unusual selection), ironwork and birdbaths and fountains.

Many people don't know they also have a wonderful rental space -- an indoor turn-of-the-century wire factory converted into a partitioned room. Beyond charming and perfect for receptions, birthdays, parties and reunions. Also, many are being married right in Blumen's gardens. What a beautiful backdrop!

All in all, a wonderful place to make a constant stop throughout the season. Whether an avid gardener, someone dabbling in limited space, if you're seeking that perfect gift or just want to wander away an afternoon, I cannot recommend Blumen Gardens enough.

I love a creative shopping experience and you can find it at Blument Gardens. The merchandise and plants are unique, interesting and well thought out. It has an unusual location that adds to its charm but might confuse prospective customers.

Business Response:

We're trying to make it easier to find us Thanks for the wonderful review. Yes, our unique location seems to be something our newer customers sometimes comment about. We're in the process of creating a new sign on Elm Street that will help everyone find us easier.

Blumen Gardens has a huge variety of perinneals. If you are looking for a variety of plants in multiple colors and variations Blumen Gardens is the place. They are moderately priced. The clerks are helpful. There are multiple flower beds planted to get ideas for your own home.

PROS: Large selection of perinneals
CONS: Difficult to find if not a local. Located in an older residential area.

New sign coming Again, another wonderful review (we have a large selection of unusual annuals as well and don't forget our vines, bushes, trees and grasses). We're in the process of finalizing a new sign on Elm Street (two blocks from our location) that will make our location more apparent. Thanks again!
