Raven ZZ Plant - Ed's Plant Shop

Story of Ed's Plant Shop

Ed's Plant Shop blossomed from the passion and dream of its founder, Ed, a proud Brooklyn native whose love affair with plants began in childhood. Inspired by his grandmother's well-cared-for Tradescantia on their stoop, Ed's fascination with greenery grew stronger over time.

Starting with a humble Craigslist job doing data entry for a local retailer turned e-commerce store, Ed's journey into the world of plants ignited his passion for retail. It also inspired his dream of opening his own plant shop.

Despite setbacks, Ed's plant collection flourished, and caring for them became his favorite hobby. In 2020, Ed's dream became a reality as he opened the doors to Ed's Plant Shop. His goal: curate a selection of healthy, high-quality plants accessible to everyone. Ed's Plant Shop grew to become a haven for plant lovers seeking expert guidance and rare finds, from his Brooklyn community to plant enthusiasts nationwide.

Mission and Vision

At Ed's Plant Shop, our mission is simple yet profound: spread the joy of green living and inspire a deeper connection with nature. We believe in the power of plants to transform spaces, improve well-being, and create a sense of tranquility in our fast-paced world.

Our vision is to be the go-to destination for plant enthusiasts, beginners, and seasoned gardeners alike. We aim to offer a carefully curated collection of foliage plants, each hand-picked and nurtured to perfection. Through our shop, we hope to nurture a vibrant community of plant lovers sharing knowledge, experiences, and a love for all things green.
