We realize the important role The Natural Garden has played in supplying native plants for dedicated native plant gardeners and we have developed a program to accommodate native plant purchasing of our Local Eco-type Natural Garden Natives™ for home gardeners. Although Midwest Groundcovers is primarily a wholesale nursery, Natural Garden Natives™ will be available for public purchase.
REGARDING THE NATURAL GARDEN GIFT CERTIFICATES:
Midwest Natural Garden Natives will accept The Natural Garden gift certificates through
October 1, 2011. Any plants Midwest Groundcovers carries can be purchased with the gift certificate. However, after October 1, 2011 your gift certificate will not be accepted.
RTE. 25, ST. CHARLES YARD SHOPPE OPENS!

AMERICAN BEAUTIES NATIVE PLANTS™
For native plant enthusiasts and native plant gardeners who do not require local eco type native plants, Midwest Groundcovers will continue to sell the American Beauties Native Plants™ program. This native plant program is offered at Independent Garden Centers locally.
Visit the excellent American Beauties Native Plants™ website which introduces gardeners to concepts in native plant gardening. Visit www.abnativeplants.com
Click here to use the garden center locator to see where to purchase American Beauties by going to this section of the AB website.
The American Beauties program is affiliated with the National Wildlife Federation and contributions from each sale go to the NWF.
This is not a program for the native plant purist, as cultivars are included, but no hybrids are allowed.
