Welcome to part two in my gifting blog series! I’m compiling a three part series of gifts/experiences that would be perfect for a loved one, lover or friend. The first part was all about scented bougie candles and now we’re talking local online plant stores and nurseries for your gardening enthusiast friends (#plantgang).
I never used to care about plants or flowers, but then I turned 25 and life happened. Now I have six (and counting) in my room and we have at least 20 in and around our house. Anyways, a lot of us don’t have the time to be in nurseries but we want plants. I’ve compiled a short list of online plant shops you can check out.
The nice thing about living in this city, is that people love plants. Located in the city centre, Plantify has a wide selection of plants that works for any plant parent. You can pick from low-light, easy-to-care-for or bigger plants that’ll suit your space. They have some delivery options for locals and you can pick your plants up from the Kloofnek nursery. And if you’re looking for a great present, get one of the gift voucher options! Check out the site for more options and information.
Plantify is an online nursery run by a small team of plant enthusiast based in Cape Town. We strive to make plant ownership more accessible, because as we all know: Plants are really really good for us!Plantify
Mother City Jungle
A boutique nursery based in Cape Town, Mother City Jungle offers delivery throughout SA. The company also focuses on bespoke greenery and has created custom work for corporate and professional spaces. If you’re based in Cape Town and don’t want to shop online, MCJ stocks a variety of stores around the city. Browse the site to get an idea of what they have on offer and send them an email if you’re looking for something specific.
If you told me five years ago that I would become a flowers kinda gal, I would have laughed at you. But thank God, my mind changed and I buy flowers when I can. Petal&Post is a Cape Town-based flower delivery service with fresh posies available five days a week. They have same-day delivery and offer a monthly subscription for those wanting to treat a loved one (*cough cough* – me). A new developments is that the company has started offering deliveries in JHB and Cape Town. You can order online and delivery costs will vary depending on area.
And if you’re based in Johannesburg, check out The Atrium
