A plant makes regular things great. A porch. A coffee table. A windowsill. A desk. Put a plant on it.
Not quite sure where in Austin you’re going to find your next plant? We’ve got five nurseries and garden centers to wander in until you do.
This is where you can find your next plant -- the one that you “definitely won’t kill”:
1. East Austin Succulents and Tillery Street Plant Co.
It’s hard not to get lost in the giant, winding garden of these neighboring shops. It’s just as hard not to find your new favorite plant. Those teeny, tiny succulents and cacti everyone is obsessed with? East Austin Succulents is filled with them. Tillery Street Plant Co. has plenty of tropical offerings that you’ll probably figure out how to keep alive in this climate, sure.
What Frond, a relatively small plant shop, lacks in size it makes up for in style and beautiful, healthy plant offerings. You can also choose from several hanging planters, because your new plant is way too good for the floor.
3. The Great Outdoors
4. Barton Springs Nursery
This nursery is all about the health of your new plant. Barton Springs Nursery offers a selection of plants native to Central Texas, and a lot, a lot of care tips, to ensure they flourish. Plus, they have a lot of pots.
5. Red Barn Garden Center
