Attention devoted plant moms/dads and beginners alike. Whether you are well-versed in the plant world or are just embarking on your houseplant journey, this guide is *just* what you need.

Not only does Western New York have a gorgeous art scene, a stunning waterfront, and hidden gem restaurants galore – but did you know we have a very lively selection of indoor plant shops open year-round as well? Instagram-worthy and foliage fantasy shops have been popping up all around town. Anything from snake plants to monstera’s, they have. The best part is truly the experience these unique local shops offer. From their wonderful atmospheres to beautiful interiors, this may be one of the most relaxing shopping experiences out there.

Are you a well-experienced plant connoisseur? These shops won’t disappoint. And if you’re a newbie testing out your green thumb, you can find the perfect selection for getting started and care tips from shop staff.

Most of the shops on this list sell plants, pots, and most of the gardening accessories you’ll need. There is no shame in the houseplant game, and the best part about this guide is that it allows you to fully support your habit (or soon-to-be habit) while supporting local businesses.

As always, make sure you check store hours and COVID-19 guidelines before you visit.
