Listen up, serial plant murderers. We’ve got another chance for you to kill things with kindness, and this time you can shout 'ho, ho, ho!' while you do it.
If you haven’t heard of these guys, they’ve become huge in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney for stuffing huge warehouses with plants and then selling them for cheap. We’re talking over 150 species, including Fiddle Leaf, Giant Birds of Paradise, Mother in Law's Tongue, lots of ferns everywhere, hanging plants, String of Pearls, Bangalow palms, Kentia palms, Monsteras. The list goes on and on.
Pets are welcome, and it’s $5 off your purchase if you dress up as Santa (minimum spend $10). Just don't go pulling a Monstera onto your lap and asking it what it wants for Christmas this year, because we're pretty sure it's not going to be a dark corner in your bedroom and being watered once a month.
Tickets to this thing are free, but crowds can get epic, so Jungle Collective have arranged a time-based booking system. You’ll need to lock down tickets, and they only let you buy one at a time. If you really want the good stuff (before it’s all gone) we recommend grabbing a Saturday Early Bird pass.
The guys will have a horticulturalist on site, so you can finally figure out why your plants keep abandoning you. And there’ll be live tunes running all day. You can also pay on EFTPOS (because it’s 2019 and places that don’t use EFTPOS don’t deserve money). And BYO box for the 39 plants you'll wind up walking out with.
