Midwest Groundcovers, a wholesale nursery headquartered in St. Charles, Ill., has purchased neighboring specialty native plant nursery, The Natural Garden, Inc. The acquisition will increase Midwest’s native plant inventory and will give Midwest customers access to a diverse array of local eco-type native plants.
Midwest and The Natural Garden are working together to ensure a seamless transition for customers and a smooth changeover for employees. Midwest will continue native plant nursery production at The Natural Garden nursery site in St. Charles but will transition to sell primarily Natural Garden Natives through Midwest Groundcovers. Natural Garden Natives will be the regional eco-type specific native plants originating from The Natural Garden stock plants and seed beds; these plants were originally collected in the 1970s and 1980s, primarily in Kane County, but no further than 90 miles from the St. Charles nursery site.
Together with these new specialty native plant offerings, customers will benefit from the diverse selection of plant material, brand programs and plant collections Midwest offers, as well as their efficient, quick and convenient delivery services in the greater Midwest.
