Take your first steps toward caring for another living thing.
Being a plant mom is the new being a dog mom is the new being an actual mom … or something like that? Here, the best places to go to greenify your home.
For Rare Plants: Hortulus Farm
Take a self-guided tour of the grounds before choosing hard-to-find specimens like rabbit’s-foot ferns, flowering maples and spiral-leaved begonias from around the world. 60 Thompson Mill Road, Wrightstown.
For Pretty Planters: Field
If a plant’s container is like the shoes that complete an outfit, consider this shop a succulent’s dream closet. 2032 Frankford Avenue, Kensington.
For Statement Plants: Stump
Stump’s spare, curated shop looks more like a chic apartment than a nursery. Which makes sense, because the staff thinks about houseplants—lush fiddle-leaf figs, spreading philodendrons, elegantly trailing satin pothos—as design elements. 956 North 2nd Street, Northern Liberties.
For City Plants: Urban Jungle
With trellised containers, vertical plant walls, and flowering window boxes, these experts will help you turn any postage-stamp-size patio or concrete backyard into an oasis. 1526 East Passyunk Avenue, East Passyunk.
