Many of our readers go to our blog post about indoor plants helping clean the air of pollutants like benzene and formaldehyde. Since Spring is peering around the corner, I though I’d point local Chicago readers to the big plant sale happening this coming weekend (May 15, 2010 – May 16, 2010) at Kilbourn Park’s Organic Greenhouse. Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse will sell more than 150 varieties of organically grown vegetable, herb and flower seedlings. Plant prices range $2 and up. Plants offered include grown tomato and pepper seedlings, other interesting vegetables, flowers, and herbs. Peruvian Purple Pepper, Boinda Di Lyon Chard, Rosita Eggplant and lots more.
Location: Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse
3501 N. Kilbourn Ave.
Chicago, IL 60641
Sale Hours: Saturday 10 am – 3 pm; Sunday 10am-2pm
Gardeners of all levels are welcome! The event is free admission and very popular, so stop by early to purchase your supply of seedlings. The Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse accepts payment for plants by cash and check only.
