14 Lush Plant Shops in Portland for House Plants, Flowers, & Gifts!

January 22, 2022

Portland has an abundance of local plant shops. From specialty plants to flowers, house plants, gifts, and even small garden nurseries. While there are also many bigger garden nurseries in Portland, like Portland Nursery, I still love to browse the smaller and more intimate little plant stores for house plants, gifts, and decor inspiration. So here are the best plant shops in Portland, Oregon. Give them a follow and visit – to shop local and keep our favorite places in business!

14 Best Plant Shops in Portland, Oregon

1. Pistils Nursery

This local plant shop started in North Portland on Mississippi and now has a second location in NW. It’s a great place to find new plants and gorgeous decor like planters and air plants. One of my favorite things about the Mississippi location is the solarium attached to the shop courtyard. This dreamy shop is mesmerizing and will make you want to buy one of everything! Beyond plants, they also offer plant care workshops.

2. Solabee Flowers & Botanicals

Solabee is like the Instagram dreams for #plantlife people. They offer houseplants, flowers, and a collection of home decor. From rare plants to the ever ubiquitous monstera. They even offer plant delivery to close in neighborhoods around the city. Beyond plants, they design the most gorgeous floral bouquets and arrangements. And also offer a “greening” service to green up your space. This is one of favorite spots to pickup gifts.

3. thicket

Thicket is a garden shop and design studio just off Alberta St in NE Portland. They have a lovely courtyard space near Great Notion Brewing (one of the best breweries in Portland!), Pine State Biscuits, and Sip Juice Cart. While they closed for a few months in winter, they’ll be back open soon! Such a great spot to browse while you wait for a table at one of the many great restaurants nearby. Just remember to buy something! Even a small purchase helps keep shops like this open and not just a place for photo ops for your Instagram feed. ;)

Livingscape is one of the last old houses now boxed in by condos between Vancouver and Williams St in North Portland. They have new owners in the last couple years, and the shop is still as cozy as ever. You can find houseplants, smaller garden supplies like starts and seeds, and even chicken supplies. Beyond general garden stuff, they focus on NW native plants and medicinal plants!

Garden Fever is one of the garden shops in Portland that bridges the gap between plant shop and nursery. When you go by, you might think oh there’s a cute little shop. But the space is pretty expansive with a selection of home goods, plants and bushes, garden starts and seeds, and dirt. A great place to pick up your garden starts and seeds when spring hits in Portland! Garden Fever is one of those NE neighborhood gems, for those in Irvington or Alameda!
