About The Growing Place Nursery & Flower Farm, Inc.
The Growing Place celebrates its 80th year in 2016. With two locations, one on Plank Road in Naperville and the other on Montgomery Road in Aurora, the family-owned, independent garden center serves customers from local communities.  In 1936, Emma and Fritz Glatzhofer opened Emma’s Perennials, specializing in field-grown perennials, at the Naperville location on Plank Road. In 1973, their nephew, Rich Massat, and his wife, Carol, took the reins and expanded the nursery. They changed the name in 1976 to The Growing Place and committed to deliver uncompromising quality, selection and customer care. The Aurora retail garden center and growing facilities opened in 1989. Both locations feature beautiful display gardens, called Learning Gardens, with nearly 1,000 varieties and user-friendly signage to educate and help spark imaginations.
