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 plants (#plantgang).
I never used to care about plants or flowers, but welp 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. Based in Gardens, 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 Gardens, Cape Town. We strive to make plant ownership more accessible, because as we all know: Plants are really really good for us!Plantify
I never used to love flowers, but wow, thank God my mind changed. I try and treat myself every other week to some flowers. 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). Have a look at the site for more information.
(They currently only offer this service in and around Cape Town)
And if you’re based in Johannesburg, check out The Atrium
