For Mother’s Day & Beyond

May. 6th, 2019 by W Scott McAdam Jr.

Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday, May 12th, and now that spring has (finally) arrived, it’s time to set roots with new plantings almost as beautiful as mom herself.  Flowering shrubs, specimen ornamentals, a plethora of perennials and flowers, organic soils and amendments – the time is now. 

And this year, when you visit our Center at 2001 Des Plaines Ave. (just a half-mile south of the Forest Park Plaza), you will find a new, refreshed look to our layout. 

A highlight for this season, and years to come, is a new section dedicated to Proven Winners products, making McAdam among a select few independent garden centers in the area that is carrying this top brand.

Founded in 1992, Proven Winners carries top-quality varieties of plants that add more diversity to the already-strong offerings we have previously provided. These products are identified by their white pots with PW on the side. 

After all, when it comes to choosing plant materials, quality matters. We don't compromise on quality. Neither should you.

Our Garden Center hours for the spring are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. We look forward to seeing and serving you!

This installment of "Ask the Plant Expert" will be published in the May 8, 2019 edition of the Wednesday Journal of Oak Park and River Forest, the Forest Park Review and the Riverside-Brookfield Landmark.
