The ground is filled with more than semi-cursed treasure chests and fully candied dinosaur bones. Let nature's soil-sitters watch over your subterranean cache with today's Groupon: for $19, you get $40 worth of Christmas trees, wreaths, and anything else at Alsip Home & Nursery. This Groupon can be used at either the Frankfort or St. John location.
Alsip Home & Nursery, whose Frankfort location was named the Best Nursery/Garden Center 2010 by the SouthtownStar, has more than 40 years of sowing, growing, and plant-bestowing experience. When the weather turns cold, the nursery offers Christmas trees, ornaments, and other holiday goodies. Alsip’s fresh-cut Christmas trees are North Carolina–grown Fraser firs (starting at $19.99), which have ample space between each branch to fill with decorations. Alsip Home & Nursery carries an array of jovial ornaments ($2.99+) and Christmas lights ($1.99+). Avoid the hassles of fallen needles with a pre-lit, lifelike tree, crafted with strong branches, crush-resistant needles, and a Santa Claus radar detector ($69.99+). Holiday lovers can perfect their holiday furnishings with poinsettias ($2.97+), gift wrap ($0.99+), and ribbon-strewn wreaths ($10.99+). In addition to holiday horticulture trimmings, the expansive greenhouse and nursery houses hundreds of annuals, perennials, tropical houseplants, vegetables, bulbs, and seasonal plants looking for a place to lay their roots.
Alsip's plant finder makes it easy to locate a suitable sprout or a tenacious tree. Alsip also boasts a bevy of lawn and garden accessories, patio furniture, and more. The knowledgeable staff will gladly advise you on plant possibilities and which watering cans combust when filled with Tang.
The SouthtownStar named Frankfort's Alsip Nursery Best Nursery/Garden Center 2010 in its Best of Chicago's Southland issue, and nwi.com recently named it Best Garden or Nursery Store. Four Yelpers give it an average of 3.5 stars:
- Alsip offers a wide selection of patio furniture, fountains and statuary, ponds…garden décor, and silk florals, plus seasonal holiday items. – Heather Augustyn, nwi.com
- This is my favorite nursery. I come here all the time now. The prices are right on the money and the black dirt is the cheapest and best quality around. The flowers go on for miles and they have a huge selection of trees and bushes. This is the largest nursery on the south side. – Steven M., Yelp
