You probably know Depop best as the one-stop shop for all your second-hand needs and as a place that champions independent designers, stylists, artists, collectors and vintage sellers. But it’s not just a place for clothes. In fact, Depop has a number of great homewares accounts too – including plant shops, with users selling cuttings, propagated plants, and plant accessories on the app.
The love for house plant feels very real right now – especially after 15 months spent indoors. According to Independent, millennials have spent twice as much on plants in lockdown than any other generation. And it's not just indoor gardening, people between the ages of 25 to 39 are said to have spent on average £213 each on their outdoor space since mid-March, according to a survey by LV General Insurance.
And there's a good reason behind it — as the Royal Horticultural Society explains, plants are really great for our wellbeing. They can improve our mood, lower stress levels, and even improve air quality in the spaces they're in. Especially over the last year, when it’s harder to get out to your local nursery or plant shop, buying plants online is a safer way of shopping, and allows you to support independent businesses. So here are some Depop plant shops you should definitely check out.
