The Plant Point, Leeds

Sunday, 21 April 2019

Anyone who knows me, knows I love plants. I started building my houseplant collection about a year or so ago now and I have around 50-ish plants that I'm currently trying my hardest to keep alive.

When myself and my fiancee decided upon a day out at Leeds, which is a little over an hour's drive from where we live, we stumbled upon The Plant Point in the Corn Exchange, which is home to quirky and independent shops.

I was amazed by this place. Where I live, there aren't any dedicated houseplant shops, and typically, I rely on garden centres to buy my houseplants from. Discovering a shop that was dedicated solely to houseplants was an actual dream, and I spent far longer browsing through all the plants than I should have done!

They have pretty much everything there, from the more common houseplants such as spider plants and pothtos, to the more rare, hard-to-find-in-the-north-east plants, such as variegated monstera and all different types of hoyas.

They had a vast selection of cacti and succulents too, if that's your thing.

I wanted to buy so much more than what I did, but carrying them around Leeds all day and getting them home just wasn't an easy option. I settled with a small cacti and a monstera adansonii.

The staff were super helpful and knowledgeable too, and I spoke to one guy fir about 30 minutes just chatting about different houseplants and which ones we've both struggled to keep alive!

I absolutely loved this place, and the next time I'm in Leeds I'm definitely going to pop back in there!
