There are so many benefits to filling your life with plants, but if you clicked on this listing, you probably already know that. What you might not know that one of Melbourne's largest plant depositories is hidden away in Prahran's back streets, inside an old plastic bag factory that has been transformed into a veritable floral wonderland.
Botanicah bills itself as the biggest plant warehouse in Melbourne's south, and with 350 square metres of floors space dedicated to plants and pots, it's easy to agree. The business began when flora-loving friends Harris Mashood and Bowen Walker decided to turn their passion into a business. After months of scoping out locations, they settled on an abandoned plastic bag factory in Prahran and quickly filled the site with plants (and consequently, plant-loving customers).
Botanicah sells a curated range of indoor and outdoor plants that are selected from Australian nurseries. There are plants available for a range of conditions and gardening abilities, with cacti to monsteras up for grabs. Plus a pretty nifty selection of locally crafted pots to put your new plants in.
While the massive Prahran warehouse (it's just around the corner from Prahran Market) is Botanicah's stomping ground, the team also manage another store in South Melbourne.
