Indoor Plant Swapping

The Wall Street Journal just published and article titled: "Plant Swaps: the Cheap Way to Score Rare Houseplants" that pointed out how popular indoor plants are becoming. The article is behind a pay wall, so you will only be able to read the first part if you do not have access.  It is a great article about people meeting to trade cuttings and plants to add to their indoor plant collections.  

The good news is we have our own plant swapping opportunity right here in Oakland called The Plant Exchange: They have regular events where you can buy and trade indoor and outdoor plants and potting materials.  Everything Grows regularly donates extra plants to this non-profit organization, so you might end up with a plant from our warehouse.

Are you ready to liven up your workspace with beautiful live plants?  At Everything Grows selecting the right plants for your office environment is our specialty. Contact us today for a complimentary site visit and design consultation and let us come up with an interior landscape that will meet most every budget!
