Bahr’s Greenhouses Opens For Spring Season
Bahr’s has opened for another season, offering area residents the finest in locally grown annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and houseplants. Located in Highland Park, Bahr’s has operated each spring and summer since it was established in 1894 by the Bahr family, and is Highland Park’s oldest family-run business.
Tom Bahr, Jr. and his wife, Kathryn, continue the family tradition by opening the shop’s doors from March to May. Early spring weekend hours expand to daily hours as the days warm.
Most of the plants at Bahr’s, including vegetable flats, are grown onsite in their fully operating greenhouses. The Bahrs know all of their additional growers and only accept plants of the highest quality, states Tom. They offer a wide selection of perennials, geraniums, begonias and hibiscus, as well as vines, coleus and container-friendly plants. Tom adds, “We get personal with our customers so we know what they like, what will work for them and how best to help them.”
Pre-planted container and hanging planters are available in many sizes and can be custom-made. Bahr’s also offers many houseplants, including a wide variety of cacti and succulents.
