The main focus of the 575-acre Kenosha Nursery is balled and burlapped specimen plant production. Located 3 miles north of the IL/WI border (5 minutes off the I-94 Interstate), the heavy clay loam soils are perfectly suited for B&B production. Shade Trees, Intermediate Ornamentals, Upright/Spreading Evergreens and larger Flowering Shrubs are all grown on wide field spacing. Extensive pruning and meticulous cultural practices produce full, uniform, superior field plants.
Mariani Plants Center (MPC) meets the challenge of having field-grown plant material throughout the summer months – when we cannot dig our deciduous field grown plants. The 18 acre “Above Ground Sales Yard” located at our Kenosha Nursery, is fully stocked with Kenosha B & B field grown plants as well as our Garden Prairie Container Inventory.
