Not just a plant store, but also a cafe and collection of maker’s studios, Stackwood is the bright and dreamy warehouse space of your dreams. Grab a coffee or a bagel and head downstairs for a chat with their resident horticulturalist – who can also be booked for consultations to green-up your home or office. Whether you’re looking for a smaller specimen or to invest in a larger established plant, Stackwood have you covered. And if you’re looking for a unique gift, head to their website to see all the upcoming workshops and events hosted in the warehouse – including make-your-own ceramics and woven wall hangings, propagation know-how and photography masterclasses.
Feeling a bit bougie? Empire Homewares has long been established as one of the best in Perth homewares, but their Claremont showroom with cafe and plant store is next level. After browsing through the stunning showroom, check out the super lush greenery – you won’t be able to miss the amazing insta-worthy cacti.
Bar Botanik, West Perth
Inner-city dwellers missing a bit of green in their lives don’t have to go far for some of the best rare plants in Perth. If you’ve been hunting down a variegated monstera or a pilea, these are the guys to follow on Instagram, where they’ll announce their latest drop of hard to find varieties. If it’s a gift for someone special, grab one of their greeting cards and check out their amazing collection of planters, including sustainable 3D printed pots from Minimum Design and super chic monochrome hanging planters from Ivy Muse.
Hass & Co. Botanics, Leederville
I cannot think of a better afternoon than grabbing a roll from the Re Store, then wandering across the road to Hass & Co. to browse through their truly impressive greenery. No matter your style, they have you sorted – from the quirkiest Jones & Co. Ziggy Stardust planter to the über sleek Lightly Design pots and everything in between.
Little Leaf Co, Myaree
An overflowing jungle warehouse, Little Leaf Co is an exercise in maximalism. With some of the friendliest staff around, and jam packed with every variety of plant you can think of, and every planter or pot you could dream of, they’re the definition of an urban oasis.
Imagine a world where you could order plants online at the click of a button, already in a super stylish pot, to be delivered to a friend (or, y’know, yourself) the very same day. You could even add-on a fertiliser pack perfectly sized for an indoor garden. Seems too good to be true, except that Green Assembly does exactly that! With heaps to choose from, they’re the perfect alternative to sending flowers – and they’ll last way longer!
Landsdale Plants, Darch
Landsdale Plants are not messing around. With a huge variety of grower direct indoor and outdoor plants at super competitive prices, this is the place to go – especially if you’re starting a garden from scratch, or looking for something big but you’re on a budget. Definitely check out their Facebook page to see what their seasonal deals are.
