Don’t let covid get in the way of your green thumb!

Newcastle officially hits week five of lockdown, and whilst we’ve managed pretty well thus far, there is absolutely no doubt there are many a thing that we can’t wait to get back to enjoying. From catching up with friends, spending long days outside in the warm weather, visiting our favourite cafes, restaurants, and bars, and of course, a little bit of in-person retail therapy.

Whilst we’ve still got a little while to go before we can get back to some normality, we may have some exciting news for you. For those budding green thumbs, those keen to add some indoor plant vibes to their home, or anyone that loves gifting a blooming good plant, we’ve collated all the local plant spots that are offering online ordering, contactless pick-up, or delivery!
