When you live in the city, you can sometimes feel a little out of touch with nature. Fortunately on the south side of Grand Street, down between Kent and Wythe, lies Sprout Home, an enchanting couple of spaces specializing in all things floral.
A reclaimed wood table lies in the middle of the first shop, housing the most gorgeous selection of stems. The carefully composed explosion of color will leave you breathless. Lavender roses, orange-fuchsia pin cushions, and neon green saracennia stand tall in glasses vases. It’s fun to walk around the table, lifting the individual stems to create your own arrangement, a story of color and texture.
The second shop, a large green oasis, beautifully displays plants, gardening tools, organic seeds, silver-dipped belly baskets, and succulents in elephant-shaped pots. Best of all, the shop offers weekly classes for creating terrariums and floral arrangements. It’s definitely worth a visit.
