We're Celebrating Our 3 Year Anniversary at Ed's Plant Shop - Ed's Plant Shop

We're Celebrating Our 3 Year Anniversary at Ed's Plant Shop

When Ed had the idea of starting a plant shop from scratch, he knew it was going to be a challenging endeavor. A plant shop requires extensive knowledge about plants, sourcing quality inventory, creating a visually appealing space, and building a loyal customer base. Additionally, the plant shop business in Brooklyn is highly competitive, requiring continuous adaptation to market trends and seasonal demands. It's not just about selling pretty plants. 

Aside from maintaining healthy plants, there is also managing inventory and providing customer service that can't be beat. With these challenges and requirements in mind, Ed stepped up to the plate and swung for the fences. Seldom if ever does a small business hit a home run in the first swing, but slowly and surely the home runs are coming more often and Ed's Plant Shop is evolving into exciting new directions.

The Ed's Plant Shop Vision:

Selling plants to houseplants parents was the first goal in opening Ed's Plant shop. Doing so during COVID created challenges of its own, but with the optimistic "can do" attitude, Ed's Plant Shop devised ways of creating contact free, safe pickup for all of our customers. Then the vision expanded beyond just our local clientele! Why not offer our plants for sale to people across the country but starting an online storefront. Once our website was dialed in, the sky was the limit! 

The vision for Ed's Plant Shop has always been to provide happy plants to create happy people. As a proud plant and pup parent, Ed knew the joy and excitement of being able to find a plant that may not be available in your local garden center and focused on sourcing healthy, rare plants. Gorgeous houseplants available to everyone was the vision and slowly but surely the inventory started to expand. A humble start with a few Chinese Evergreens erupted into hundreds of unique and rare varieties with the selection growing weekly!

We remember the lives lost, the heroes who emerged from the ashes, and the unity that defines us as New Yorkers. We remember the strength of our diverse community, which stood as one on that tragic day in the face of evil.
