Quality Grows Here

In 1978, the Plunk Family had a vision to bring quality landscaping services to serve the Joliet and surrounding area. Then in 1992, they expanded with a full-service nursery and garden center.

Allied Nursery and Garden Center offers products to a wholesale market as well as the general public. Even though it has a reputation as a wholesale dealer, the public has always been a part of the business

We carry a large selection of perennials, over 40 varieties of trees and shrubs – both deciduous and evergreen. As the weather warms up, bedding plants will make their way onto our patio and under our new pergola! The Garden Center carries all of the staple vegetable, herbs, flower and fruits, locally
grown for hardiness! Whether you’re looking to plant a new tree or replace one, stop into the Garden Center and let our knowledgeable staff help you pick out and tag a tree that will fit your outdoor living space. All trees are locally or zonally grown for the hardiness in our area. You always have the option of having us load your purchase or setting an appointment for delivery & installation.

Allied Nursery & Garden Center has branched out and expanded its product lines in several areas. Succulents, such as cactus and house plants, which have become popular niche items with little maintenance. Tropical plants such as rose trees and Mandevilla vines have become popular additions to add color and dress up sunrooms and patios.

Allied Nursery & Garden Center is unique because it offers; an in-house horticulturalist who is able to indicate what plants will work best in a particular location dependent on soil and water care, a landscape
architect to design a plan for homes or businesses, and master gardeners to assist with perennial flower planting and selection. “There has been a growing interest in Native Plants. When insects, like bees and butterflies disappear
due to the landscape and lack of food sources, people want to bring them back. These plants are hardy for our area.. Because of this rise in interest, Native plants will also find a place in the Nursery this year, as they have become an important part of the environment for birds as well as habitat for bees and butterflies. Native plants that include many pollinators, such as perennials and shrubs can be purchased at Allied Nursery & Garden Center.
