Plants and Friends
Plants and Friends is home to a wide range of plants, succulents and cacti, alike. Though our shop may be small in size, we make up for it with our wide selection and in the diversity of plants we carry. Rather than receive big batch deliveries, we visit Bay Area nurseries regularly to hand-pick a lush collection of plants that cater to all types of indoor conditions, and all types of thumbs. We take an artisanal approach by selecting the very best and balanced plant collection for our customers, so that you can take home high quality, beautiful plants that will thrive in your setting. Artfully selected plants from our hands to your home.
Nick created Plants and Friends in the Fall of 2017. Having a rich career in Experiential Marketing, Photography and Creative Production for Bay Area brands, Nick decided to switch it up and start something new, Plants and Friends. He wanted to create a space where people could lean in and feel inspired, welcomed and encouraged. Plants and Friends is a multidimensional space, a place to feel curious about nature, to make new connections, and to feel encouraged about caring for plants, yourself and each-other.
Harmony comes from a long lineage of horticulture hobbyists and professionals. Her father and mother founded their Plant Maintenance and Interior Plantscaping business on the Central Coast in 1983, where Harmony spent her childhood helping them in the greenhouse and the garden. She did not realize she too had an interest in pursuing a career in horticulture, until working as a Visual Merchandiser at a boutique nursery in 2016. Since then, she has helped run her family’s business, and started a pop-up plant and vintage home goods shop of her own called Younger Child.
