Our motto: you can never have enough plants! We love the fresh and bright live art element that plants add to home decor. What we're saying is we'd basically be OK with turning our homes into jungles ;)

Thicket is a hidden gem tucked just off Alberta Street. It's got the perfect balance of urban and bohemian style. We love that you can hop off a major Portland street into this plant oasis. We especially love Thicket's Oregon native plants and cactus / succulents sections. The staff is known for going above and beyond for their customers by doing things like potting plants at no charge, even in pots you bring from home!

We love Pistils Nursery on Mississippi - you can count on finding the latest sought after specialty plant here. Their shop is a treat to visit, flowing from a boutique indoor space to a solarium (pictured above) to an outdoor nursery area complete with a flock of exotic bantam chickens.
