Clocking in at an impressive 350 square metres and packed full of leafy green delights, Botanicah is pegged to be the Southside's biggest plant warehouse. And if you've got even a glimmer of the plant-buying bug, don't expect to leave here empty-handed.

Best mates Harris Mashood and Bowen Walker have filled their space — a former plastic bag factory — with a covetable collection of greenery, pots and accessories. The range is always growing, too, with every piece sourced carefully from local nurseries and artisans.

There's a little something here to suit just about every condition and watering habit imaginable, from those sun-loving outdoor plants to cute cacti and hard-to-kill indoor varieties. Fancy a foxtail fern for your bedroom? Maybe a melanthera to brighten up that balcony? Whatever you're vibing, a wander through this soothing green oasis is likely to unearth it.

Along with buckets of inspiration, the team's also got your back with expert advice on how to help those new plant babies thrive. And plant sale events are a regular occurrence — stay tuned to the Facebook page for details.
