-Online or In Person
Sometimes you just want to browse or you need a plant fix after battling the grocery isles and getting necessities. Big Box Stores like Home Depot, Lowes, and Various Grocery Stores usually have a plant section. It does vary from store to store so you may have to travel around a bit to find a plant that you like or if you are looking for a specific deal on a specific plant. This can be a great place to find clearance plants or smaller plants with decorative pots.
You can also sometimes order specific plants from them online for a little more money if you have your heart set on a specific plant exclusive to them.
-Local to you-
Shopping locally is one of the best things and can lead to some amazing deals and plant finds.
Local Nurseries may have a selection you can’t find anywhere else. If you are struggling to find plants that naturally thrive in your area or physically want to see a new type of plant then local Nurseries are perfect for you. Another benefit to local Nurseries is they may have plants that were popular a season or two ago but are no longer available on the market. Nurseries can also have other resources like repotting services, pruning services, plant care tips, and workshops for new plant parents, and can be a place to meet other plant parents. Local Nurseries are a valuable resource for more than just plant shopping. Even if you prefer to shop for plants online it can be worth the time to visit your local nursery.
Facebook (marketplace, buy-sell and trade groups, and local recycling groups)
If you enjoy project plants, growing from seeds, huge old plants, plant trades, and finding other plant people locally then Facebook can be a great resource for you. There are many plant groups with plants being sold on Facebook. There is less accountability though and a lot of these purchases can be a bit of a gamble. Make sure you get pictures and there is clear communication of expectations. Be safe when meeting strangers and have fun finding kind plant finds while meeting new people!
Plant Shopping can be an exhilarating experience filled with fun and exciting new plants to enhance your space and your growing skills. There is no better feeling than bringing home a new plant and watching it transform your home as it grows. Plant shopping does not have to be complicated or worrisome and you don’t even have to leave your home or routine to find amazing plants!
