Welcome to Kolze’s

Healthy plants, fantastic prices. We’re continually adding new ideas and products to make growing easier.




What to expect…

This grower is definitely the best around. They grow their own plants, teach you how to care for them, and don’t use any growth inhibitors or anything else destructive. Awesome people!George M. | Customer

Just happened upon this nursery and have been back 4 times, the plants are so healthy and prices are best around.Cheri B. | Customer

The Kolze Family has been growing plants since 1949.

Robert Kolze Sr. started selling vegetables on the side of the road, which grew into a stand in Palatine, IL. Our Christmas tree business started in 1959. We moved to Woodstock, IL in 1997, as our plant selection and customer base expanded. Our vegetable and herb starter plants are pesticide and growth regulator free, increasing their size and yield.

We are passionate about growing, hiring, and supporting local. Come by during an open house to help us support the McHenry County Food Banks.
