Field Trip: Pistils Nursery

Portland plant shop Pistils Nursery
Pistils Nursery has been one of my favorite places to buy plants ever since I moved within walking distance two years ago. Indoors, they’ve long had a great selection of houseplants, terrarium supplies, and gifts, and in the back, there were lots of outdoor plants, and even a flock of fluffy chickens. But this past winter they added a dreamy solarium (like a greenhouse), which really takes the shop to the next level. When I was there this week they were still putting the finishing touches on it, so it’s brand new, but I already want to move in.

I guess I’ll just have to settle for turning my house into a jungle. Which will be easy with all of the plants they have. If you visit in the next few days, they’re running an Instagram promotion where you can get a free plant! Details here. I snagged one with this picture.

These moss-bound plants are called kokedama, and they have instructions for making your own on their blog. They have workshops, too.

Not plant-related (except the yarn is made of wool from sheep, and sheep eat plants?) but if you’re a knitter, they recently started carrying super chunky yarn kits from Loopy Mango.
