About Us

Gethsemane Garden Center has proudly served Chicago’s gardening needs for almost forty years. Family owned and operated, our knowledgeable staff is passionate about flora and dedicated to providing you with the highest quality plant material and customer service in Chicagoland. We take the concept of buying locally to heart and are committed to supporting local, family run farms and greenhouses, some of which grow solely for us. This allows us to quickly respond to the unique needs and tastes of our diverse community and to make certain that we always have a great selection and variety of plants throughout the growing seasons.

Nestled at the border of Edgewater and Andersonville, Gethsemane is also firmly committed to supporting our community. We do this every day by creating quality jobs for our local residents. We give back through street beautification projects and foster neighborhood camaraderie by hosting free holiday celebrations. We also sponsor an active philanthropic program that focuses on targeted giving within our surrounding area. We are just bursting with neighborhood pride and are thrilled that Gethsemane brings so many of you to our “neck of the woods” to see firsthand just what a wonderful and vibrant part of the city we inhabit.

Our goal is to make Gethsemane into a place for you to meet your neighbors, share ideas, and be inspired to personally create a landscape for your home. So, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting us and for letting Gethsemane help your garden grow.
