Whether you’re looking for your very first plant (welcome to plant parenthood!) or hoping to add some more babies to your family, check out the list below to support Valley kids selling plants.

1. Brandon the Plant Guy, Van Nuys

Brandon the Plant Guy has only been selling plants for about a year, but what a year he’s had. According to his Instagram account, in the last seven months, Brandon the Plant Guy has sold 7,000 plants! He gets new inventory on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays — check out his Instagram page for the drops.



2. Indoor Wilderness LA, Panorama City

It doesn’t matter what anyone says, Indoor Wilderness LA will always be the original eucalyptus plug. When we first got into putting the plant in our shower as aromatherapy (because the steam releases the eucalyptus’s scent), Indoor Wilderness LA was one of the only shops that carried it. Don’t worry, though: Indoor Wilderness LA sells more than just eucalyptus!


3. Valley Girl Gardens, Granada Hills

Established in 2017, Valley Girl Gardens has a cute outdoor setup in a Granada Hills home. Whether you need plants, sage, crystals, candles, or merch, Valley Girl Gardens is your go-to! Follow them on Instagram to stay updated on their inventory and their next pop-up dates.

4. Greenwood Shop, Valley Village

Greenwood Shop is the only plant plug with a storefront (big flex). Located at 12441 ½ W. Magnolia Blvd. in Valley Village, Greenwood Shop offers plants and planters, accessories, and an apothecary. The store is open 11 a.m.-6 p.m. daily and is a great way to surround yourself with nature without having to actually go out into nature.


5. Happy Garden Home, Burbank

Perhaps the best thing about Happy Garden Home — besides the beautiful plants, of course — is their uplifting Instagram captions. Happy Garden Home’s account is also a great way to learn how to propagate (making new plants from current plants) and how to transfer your cuttings to soil. To learn more about Happy Garden Home, visit their website.


As a writer and first-generation Mexican American born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, I'm passionate about celebrating the communities in the 818. That passion fueled the founding of Viva the Valley in November 2020 and it continues to fuel its upkeeping. Full time, I'm a writer and editor at California State University, Northridge. I also am a freelancer and work with editors at websites and magazines as well as small business owners who want to share more on their business blogs.
