Hours and Directions

Welcome to Murphy’s Gardens!  

We are a friendly, family-owned, greenhouse, garden center and fresh produce farm located only 3 miles from historic downtown  Galena, IL in Jo Daviess County.  We are in the far NW corner of IL and only 12 miles from Dubuque, IA and 20 miles from Platteville, WI.   

Our 8 greenhouses are bursting with an vast and diverse collection of perennials, ornamental grasses, perennial vines,  specialty annuals, herbs, vegetables, unique containers, unique shrubs and trees.   We have over 425 varieties of perennials including 200+ different Hostas.  Our mission is to grow the healthiest, highest quality plants available.   Most plants are lovingly propagated and/or potted as “babies” in our own greenhouses and are cared for by our knowledgeable staff using sustainable growing practices.    Shrubs and trees are brought in from mid-west nurseries and are of the highest quality.  

When you visit our nursery, or stop in to buy fresh produce in our shop, you are invited to wander our acres of display gardens for inspiration, relaxation and education.  We believe in growing what we sell so our dozens of display beds feature hundreds of cultivars in various stages of growth.  We grow them, so we know them!   Our gardens are open during regular business hours.   We sell plants from mid-April—October.   Fresh, local produce including  vast variety of vegetables and fruits  can be found in our store from late July - mid October.   We specialize in heirloom and unusual varieties not often found in big box or grocery stores.


We also have an interesting selection of unique garden decor, gardening aides, seeds, compost, tools and pottery items.


Our staff is made up of experienced growers, master  gardeners, landscape designers and home gardeners with an enthusiasm for service.   We  have a wealth of knowledge and experience and are happy to answer your questions.  We hope that you will not only leave with new plants, gardening décor or fresh produce, but that you will also gain inspiration and some new friends.     We hope to see you soon & often!
