Life has certainly been more than a bit ambiguous lately, but with Western New York set to begin reopening this week and Mother Nature finally giving us the beautiful spring weather we deserve (snow in early May was just cruel), things are really starting to look up. While we can’t say for certain how long we’ll still be practicing social distancing for, one thing is for sure: this weather is giving us a bit of a green thumb.

Whether you’re a long time plant parent expert, a serial plant-killer, or somewhere in between, we’ve rounded up all of the best spots in Western New York you can shop locally for all your garden and houseplant needs this year. Plus, we’ve also included a handful of amazing local florists for those looking to purchase locally-made flower bouquets, be it for a special occasion coming up or just to send a smile. 

Use our guide below to get all of the info on which plant & garden shops are currently open, who’s delivering/providing curbside pickup, and how to support local businesses by ordering some new plant babies:
