Where to Buy Indoor Plants in Perth
You only need to jump on Instagram for five minutes to see that indoor plants have become quite the little phenomenon. In years gone by, if we had an empty corner in our living room, we’d look for an armchair or perhaps a floor lamp to fill that space; however these days, there is absolutely no doubt in our minds that that corner must be filled with a fiddle leaf fig - preferably housed in a stylish ceramic pot.
So if you have some space to fill in your home, here are the best spots in Perth to buy indoor plants.
Beans and Bunches, Northbridge
Down Arcade 189 on William Street (the same arcade that is home to Is Donburi and Francoforte) sits Beans and Bunches. This delightful little business, run by local florist Stacey, specialises in beautiful blooms - but Stacey also has a nice little range of indoor plants sure to add something special to your living space. (Her border collie, Bobby, is also a on hand if you fancy a side of dog cuddles with your plant shopping.)
Perth City Farm, East Perth
Just make sure you visit at the right time – plants are available just outside the City Farm Café (so grab a coffee first) Monday to Friday from 9am - 2.30pm, and on Saturday mornings at their Farmers Market from 8am – 12pm. And one handy tip: as Perth City Farm is an environmentally friendly, minimal waste organisation, they don’t put plastic labels on all their plants – so take a look at their plant photo album on their Facebook page to help identify the potted beauties.
Pigeonhole, PerthIf you need a no-fuss, easy-to-care-for kind of plant, head to Pigeonhole on Murray Street in Perth. Not only is Pigeonhole the ultimate gift destination, with its collection of quirky and unique items, it also has a great range of succulents – the best type of plant for those who are new to plant ownership needing very little water and not a whole lot of attention. Whether you want a large one for the corner of your living room or tiny one for the windowsill, Pigeonhole has got you covered.
King Street Collective, PerthYou may not associate Perth’s stylish King Street with plant shopping, but the uber-hip King Street Collective has an amazing selection of little succulents. They also have loads of ceramic pots and planters for your new plant to live in, ranging from modern sophisticated pots, to quirky ones shaped like elephants, hedgehogs and mice.
St Anne’s Florist, PerthWhile St Anne’s has made a name for itself with its gorgeous floral arrangements, they also have a huge variety of indoor plants – so pop in to their Perth Plant Shop on Newcastle to peruse their collection. If you can’t there yourself though, St Annes also have a website where you can order indoor plants across Perth, and even get them delivered to a loved one as gift alternative to flowers.
