Our Mission

We are a small plant retail shop that caters to plant enthusiasts and beginners alike.  We first thought about opening a plant store because of what seemed like excessive plant pricing at other locations throughout the city, we figured there had to be a better way.  

We get it, plants can be overwhelming in terms of their care and needs which sometimes doesn't suit our tiny Philly rowhomes and apartments that have access to extra special natural light.  We are very hands on and hope to make your plant buying experience as unintimidating as possible.  We are here to help you find the perfect plant that fits your special space to help it not just stay alive but thrive.  Be prepared to have some questions thrown your way about your light situation because we seriously want to sell you a plant that will be happy and make your green thumb shine!!  

We will also be providing plant installations starting in the spring for your home needs which can include installing window boxes with plants, repurposing your outdoor/patio space and helping design your roofdeck foliage.  We provide guidance on your indoor plant needs as well, either bring us in some pictures of your space or we can come to you to recommend the appropriate plants for your living space.  We provide installation services for corporate clients including office space, corporate lobbies, apartment lobbies and restaurants. 

On a monthly basis we will highlight local Philly artists and offer their work for sale.  We will have a mix of art from paintings, print, photography, textiles, mirrors and last but not least local potters to hold all of your lovely plants.  If you would like to be a featured artist give us a call, email us or send us a message on Instagram.  We will also host events for local organizations, non profits, community organizations, clubs and private events, just reach out the same as above.  We truly want to feel like a part of this wonderful diverse community and become part of the local fabric.

As a small business we have the ability to be flexible with our pricing and availability as we listen to what our neighborhood and customers are looking for and hope to be able to provide you with great service so you come back for more happy plants.  We are here to not only cultivate your actual plants but to plant that seed for a lifetime love affair with plants.
