Kick Off Spring at the Flower Happy Hour Open House


HINSDALE, Ill.---Vern Goers Greenhouse, Inc. is proud to kick off their 45th year in Hinsdale with a Flower Happy Hour Open House on Friday, April 15 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Flower Happy Hour will take place at Vern Goers Greenhouse in Hinsdale, 5620 South Oak St., and will feature a variety of activities for garden lovers of all levels of expertise. With a sale of 10 percent off all greenhouse purchases made that night, this is a chance to get a jump-start on your spring planting.

“We want to thank the community for supporting us for the past 45 years, and this is just one of the ways we will be doing so this year,” said Phillip Goers, owner of Vern Goers Greenhouse.

In preparation for the upcoming spring season, tips for prepping your garden, and new varieties of both perennials and Proven Winners will be featured.  One of the head horticulturists, Dan Kosta, will be on hand to answer any garden questions, and we dare you to find one that he cannot answer.

The open house will also feature a free wine tasting from All Wined Up Wine Shop and Tasting Bar from Clarendon Hills.  For any guests under the age of 21, there will also be an assortment of appetizers and desserts to enjoy.

The spring open house is just one of many events Vern Goers Greenhouse has hosted.  During the winter they hold free English Garden Basket Workshops and throughout the month of May, they have Design with the Experts nights every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

“Events like these give beginning and expert gardeners new ideas for what they can do in their own yards,” said Debbie Wentz, designer at Vern Goers Greenhouse.  “The events are free and we do our best to work with each person one on one. You really can learn a lot.”
