Have you ever been to Laurel Hill Gardens in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia? If not, you’re seriously missing out! I call this my “happy place” because it is the most beautiful, calming environment.
Laurel Hill Gardens in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia offers just about anything you could possibly imagine. The plant stock is always rotating, and there are always new options to choose from! The plants are on the pricier side, but they are always healthy and thriving.
They always have a huge selection of options! Big, small, leafy, flowering, fast-growing, annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees, etc.… you name it, they have options for you!
Personally, I’ve purchased flowers for every season from Laurel Hill. They are always lush, full, and healthy!
As summer fades away into autumn, be sure to stop by for all your halloween needs! They have a huge selection of gourds, pumpkins (in every size including JUMBO!). In winter, they’ve got you covered for wreathes, winter greens, and Christmas trees! This place is magical in every season!
They also have a large selection of mature plants, which are sometimes hard to find!
My favorite purchase from Laurel Hill Gardens is definitely my two hydrangea standards. A hydrangea standard is when a hydrangea has been meticulously pruned from Day 1 to result in a single trunk extending from the ground. On top of the trunk, there is an eruption of flowers.
The staff at Laurel Hill Gardens makes the experience even better! Every person on their team is wildly knowledgeable about plants, and they’re happy to help!
In addition to being helpful, the people who work here are incredibly talented.
They offer lots of different (and STUNNING!) “pre-arranged” options, which is helpful for those short on time! Different pre-arranged arrangements (there has to be a better way to say that!) are offered for different seasons… (Think succulents in summer, holiday decorations in winter!)
Most recently, they helped out with our front porch holiday decorations! They designed a beautiful wreath to fit our front door, and even made matching “drop-in” buckets for our front porch!
Did I mention they deliver?!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this place. The plants are always beautifully cared for, and they’re always beautifully arranged.
Sometimes I just wander in just to poke around! There is something instantly calming about being here.
Random side note: If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of some beautiful butterflies! I have never seen such exquisite butterflies outside of a dedicated “butterfly pavilion”
