Reds Garden Center is a family-owned business that has been serving Chicago's North Shore community since 1968. Beginning as a farm
market selling fruits and vegetables from its 6-acre Northbrook site, the operation expanded a year later to include nursery and firewood sales. Shortly after the nursery
business began, founder Wallace "Red" Poehls (1926–2008) purchased farmland in Lake Zurich and began growing his own nursery stock, enabling Reds Garden Center
to provide quality plants at the best possible price. A gift shop specializing in home and garden décor and outdoor everything was added in 1994, and shortly thereafter Reds
began to offer complete landscape and design services. In early 2002, Reds acquired the property formerly occupied by North Wheel Farm and once again expanded the inventory
of plant material and garden supplies to include a huge selection of annuals, perennials, over 40 varieties of roses, and a new homegrown vegetable market.
Today, Reds Garden Center is operated by Red's daughters who take pride in providing superior plant material and personal service.
