Wholesale Nursery in Illinois

Are you looking for a Illinois wholesale nursery that produces field-grown, fully finished trees and shrubs?

We have been serving wholesale customers in the professional landscaping industry throughout Illinois for many years.

Chicago and its suburbs are known for expansive urban forestry and a wide diversity of classic shade trees. Located in hardiness Zone 6a and 5b it is important to note that proximity to Lake Michigan can temper the summer heat and cold winters, but also create lake-effect wind and snow. Our wholesale nursery experts can advise you on just the right plant selections. Our specialty catalog offers a little bit of everything from ornamental crabapples to wind-screening limber pines, and butterfly-attracting kousa dogwood cultivars.

Why our Illinois wholesale nursery customers purchase from us year after year

There are many reasons to purchase your landscape shrubs and trees from Waverly Farm Wholesale Nursery. Here are four:

  1. Nursery plants are 90% propagated on site.
  2. Proprietary tillage techniques conserve vibrant, healthy soil that gives plants a strong start in life and promotes continued vigor while they mature in your landscapes.
  3. No synthetic fertilizers. Two on-site composting stations cook up a proprietary blend of minerals and organic matter for soil regeneration and replacement.
  4. Our proprietary harvesting techniques produce a wider root ball that captures most of the feeder roots and yet is much easier to handle on the job site.

What Our Wholesale Nursery Customers Say

Does this thing let you go more than five stars? I’ve been buying plants for many years and from all over the country. In doing so, I have a pretty good idea of what to expect at your average nursery operation.  That said, there are a handful of growers that exceed all expectations.  These are growers who so obviously run a tight ship that it is apparent even just pulling up to the office. The property is immaculate.  The stock uniform, neatly rowed and tended.  Tidy.  Weed free.  Blemish free.  When you place an order with them, you don’t have to cross your fingers about what you might expect to receive, and you certainly don’t have to worry about what your clients might think on the other end.  Waverly Farm is one of those growers.  I always look forward to getting stock in from them just to see folks’ reaction. I have yet to be disappointed…

Derrin Hayes, Plant Buyer J. W. TOWNSEND Landscapes | VA

We are an upscale Landscaping company, and dealing with clients and nurseries can be tough. Tiffany and Lindsey are a breath of fresh air, making the whole process seamless. I never have any surprises when it comes to inventory, service or deliveries. They are up front with everything and I love working with them. I've had some horror stories when it comes to dealing with other growers, but they are truly the easiest to work with.
