It was love at first sight the moment I walked into Plant in Calgary. And that was when it was at it’s first, much smaller, location in Inglewood. Now, at it’s much larger venue on 9th Avenue, it has become my absolute favourite store in Calgary.
Plant has everything and more us #plantsluts could want.
I could spend hours/I HAVE spent hours looking at all the cacti, succulents, air plants, leafy plants, flowers, ferns, etc. But what makes Plant better than most plant stores, is that you will also find the most stylish of containers to display your new friends. Planters, vases, terrariums, hanging holders, living walls…they can all be found or created at Plant.
Plant is also full of inspiration. Whoever is behind buying the products and designing the aesthetic of the store has great taste, which is hardly surprising in the ultra-hip neighbourhood of Inglewood. But it means that you are not just shopping for new, green life to warm up your home, you are also finding tons of ideas for how to display the plants. And what you can buy or make in addition to the plants that will help transform your space even further.
It’s also a great spot if you are looking for a gift! Tons of trendy little items that you’d have a hard time finding anywhere else in the city.
And if you’re anything like me, and love plants but don’t necessarily have a green thumb, the people who work at Plant will pot all the plants you buy for you. Overall, it’s a really good neighbourhood spot that’s definitely worth checking out whether you’re looking to spruce up your home, buy a gift, or if you are just looking for some inspiration!
