|It's snowy outside but our nurseries are warm. We're getting ready for Spring!|
We grow our own plants so we're busy now getting ready for spring. Our greenhouses are full of activity and seedlings - working to be the best plants and flowers around.

Johansen Farms is a Chicago-area garden center
located in Bolingbrook, IL with open hours in the spring and fall of each year. In the spring, we have two locations to offer annuals, hanging baskets, herbs, perennials and vegetables for the gardeners of Bolingbrook, Naperville, and southeast Chicagoland. We also have a decor center for people who like to decorate their homes in a botanically beautiful style.
We grow all of our plants right here on our farms, so we grow everything extra big and showy. Our big sizes can easily fill the back of a minivan, and our smaller sizes are great values. We grow them longer, we grow them bigger and we have no freight costs or trucks to squeeze into—so you can buy a really big plant from Johansen Farms for your dollar.
In the fall, we also host the popular Johansen Farms Fall Festival—a Pumpkin Farm and Petting Zoo for children in our Boughton Road location. The festival is a regional tradition that goes back four generations for some of our customers. Big, small, fancy pumpkins along with mums, fall decor and very friendly farm animals make a great visit for the day. Families come with their cameras and take pictures of the children choosing their pumpkins and feeding the tame farm animals—it's a great way to capture memories while they are still small.
We also have a seasonal bakery that specializes in holiday pies and apple cider donuts. You can order four flavors of our fresh-baked pies in September and October, and we also bake our special pies for Thanksgiving dinners for our customers who pre-order.
In the cold winter months, we are closed to prepare for the spring gardening season, and in the hot summer months, we close to prepare for the busy fall holidays.
You can still order Thanksgiving Pies by phone or online from our seasonal bakery. Although our retail locations are now closed for the season, we will reopen for one day on Wednesday, November 23rd (afternoon only!)
to distribute all the pies our customers have pre-ordered. Last year’s Thanksgiving Pie pre-order was a big success, so we are happy to do it again this year. We look forward to seeing you at the door.
