If you missed out on The Jungle Collective's previous warehouse plant sales, be sure to clear the weekend of July 7 and 8. Because there's another one on its way.
The Jungle Collective is a Melbourne nursery that stocks all kinds of weird and wonderful species. After holding many wildly successful Sydney markets last year, it's tracking down new plants and throwing another two-day indoor plant party. This time, it's Christmas in July–themed, so wear ugly sweaters, Santa suits and elf ears. If you do, you'll get a $5 discount off of your purchase.
While plenty of rare plants and indoor favourites will be on offer, with everything from hanging pot plants to palms to a giant Bird of Paradise, so prepare to welcome a few into your home. Have a reputation for killing your cacti? Overwatering your ferns? Don't worry — there'll be horticulturalists on site on the night to give you advice and chat through any questions you might have.
This time round, the plant sale is being hold in a new location — and as part of Precinct 75's Winter Design Market. The good stuff tends to go first, so we recommend booking a morning session on the Saturday.
Winter Wonderland Plant Sale will run from 10am–2pm on Saturday, July 7, and Sunday July 8. Tickets will be available from midday, Monday, July 2, via the Facebook page.
