If there's one thing we love, it seems, it's a dose of Mother Nature in the form of a leafy, green houseplant. Located on the Redfern end of Bourke Street, Merchant & Green is the neighbourhood's leafy oasis, providing you with all things green.

The shop is packed wall-to-wall with greenery. Walk in and you'll find yourself in a floral haven, with orchids, monsteras, cacti, succulents, ferns and bonsai, to name a few. You can find terrariums, colourful blooms and lush bouquets, cards, ceramics, pots and planters, candles and other homewares, too.

The folks here also know a thing or two about gardening if you're in need of some tips. Plus, to help fuel your plant obsession, Merchant & Green run a bunch of workshops. Put your green thumb to work and learn how to create a terrarium or kokedamas (Japanese moss balls). Or, you can arrange a bouquet of Australian wildflowers, macramé or make flower crowns.

Whether you're wanting some new green babies for your home (and some wares to match), gardening tips, a last-minute-gift bouquet or to show off your green thumb in a workshop, make sure you drop by this little Redfern shop.
