Every neighborhood has a plant store or some kind of nursery. Many neighborhoods have several. But few shops are as well curated as Sprout Home in Chicago. The shop has an indoor-outdoor garden center as well as a neighboring shop for lifestyle goods and flowers. When it comes to filling a home with life, they have all bases covered.
In the garden realm, they have indoor and outdoor plants, planters, terrariums, and custom constructions. They also have flowers (fresh arrangements, preserved florals) and ceramic and glass vases fit for all kinds of arrangements. And then of course plenty of table top goods, textiles, candles and more. Point is, any home can get a little spruced up and there is certainly something on these shelves to do just that.
Go here for: all of your plant mom needs, giftable goods
Get this: ceramics, terrariums, custom floral arrangements
Amount of time to spend: a few minutes to an hour if you need some plant consulting
When to come: during the warmer months (let’s be real, you’re in Chicago)
Getting here: this part of town is not easy to get to via CTA, so without a car you will have to go by bus (50 via Damen, 66 via Chicago).
Other things to note: They offer custom design services and do events for floral arrangements and plant education.
