Sprout Home in Chicago Home

More from the May/June issue of Chicago Home: The perfect-for-this-time-of-year shop Sprout Home featured as a "Shop We Love" by the magazine's editors.

We love Sprout, too, and think it's a great spot to look for a Mother's Day gift, get you excited about some spring gardening products, and just a generally good place to wander around for inspiration and seasonally appropriate goods.

Although spendy, we love this L. Aquo stainless watering can ($106). We can't seem to let go of the small, brown plastic watering can our grandmother gave us years ago. Even so, there's just something about seeing a shiny new watering can that makes us excited for our most basic urban gardening.

Also noted in the mag's overview: owner Tara Heibel is opening up shop in Brooklyn this spring. We love when good things first start in the second city. Congrats, Tara!
