So last weekend I stumbled upon what might just be my favourite store yet! Hiding away, tucked into Wangara sits The Greenhouse Gathering, a collection of three Perth based botanists/nurseries that have come together to create an amazing and green filled space. Make sure you don’t miss this amazing store by driving past, as they are still working on their signage, and it can be a little hard to spot!
As soon as I walked into the room I knew I loved the space, it was bright, with white painted brick walls and large windows across the front of the store letting in all the afternoon sunshine. As we entered we were greeted by an unseen voice, Chelsea was around the corner in her potting area, and she promptly came out to see if she could assist us.
The three companies which combined to create The Greenhouse Gathering consisted of Chelsea from Let it Grow Co., Vanessa from The Birds Nest Co. and Theresa from The Botanical Home. Aside from these three amazing contributors the store stocks other unique and local brands brands such as, Pop and Scott, When Cara met Max, Pip and Printer, Lisa Soon, La Sorella and Pot it Like its Hot.
One of my favourite features about The Greenhouse Gathering, which I didn’t actually find out about until I got home, is that they host workshops! They have already successfully hosted several workshops, ranging from how to photograph greens to how to kokedama. I am so exited by what will be coming up soon in their space, I know they will be hosting a plants: 101 workshop in collaboration with Spreading Roomers, which I for one wish I could attend!
If you do want to head down to this beautiful hidden gem then make sure you check the opening hours, as they are currently only open Friday through Sunday, 11am until 4pm. I highly suggest you head down to 1/38 Buckingham Drive, Wangara WA 6065 next weekend!
The Botanical Home, by Theresa, is an absolutely beautiful collection of handmade terrariums, they vary greatly in sizes and price, starting at $15 and going up from there. You will be amazed by the range they offer.
The Birds Nest Co, by Vanessa, offer these amazing little kokedama planters. I have never seen this planter type before and I thought they were amazingly unique! To care for these plants you just soak you kokedama ball once a week and squeeze off the excess water, so simple!
I bought two gorgeous items, the triple succulent pot and the When Cara met Rex leaf earrings, and Chelsea was kind enough to gift me the small cactus as well! I already want to go back and I have already selected some of the plants I want to purchase! I am very eager to pick up a small fiddle leaf fig, and perhaps a terrarium and hanging kokedama plant… but then again, I may end up with more!
