Pick up some inside or outdoors plants to brighten your home
The Jungle Collective idea started on Saturday 14th October, 2017. Two people, Josh O'Meara and Linda Vydra, started The Jungle Collective because of their love of indoor plants, and throwing parties. On the lookout for something fun and different, The Jungle Collective was thus born. The Jungle Collective is a pop-up indoor plant sale that is run from a warehouse in Abbotsford every couple of weeks.
Each event has a different theme and focus. The idea was to keep each sale experience fun, different and interesting. The couple work with a team of horticulturalists who are in attendance in case you have any questions about your plants or any you wish to buy. The couple's aim is to continue making plant shopping a fun and memorable experience!
At these events, they have Eftpos, and there is plenty of parking.
1. CHRISTMAS IN JULY PLANT SALE This will be held on 7th July, 2018, from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm at The Jungle Collective, 19 Studley St, Abbotsford. There will be a huge range with this theme and the sale is located in their Bohemian style warehouse in Abbotsford (not normally open to the public).
The idea is to dress up! There is $5 off if you wear Christmas related clothes. There will be Santa hats and outfits, elves, Christmas helpers, Christmas themed jumpers, Christmas earrings, and more!
At previous sales, they have had over 60 different species of plants including:
2. HUGE INDOOR PLANT PARTY - LOW LIGHT SPECIAL This will be held on 7th July, 2018, from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm at My Jungle Home, 71-75 Gilbert Road, Preston.
Winter is here and a great way to brighten your home with greenery is to buy indoor plants. However, many plants need outdoor light to thrive and this party is aimed at those plants that are suitable for winter light.
Therefore, this sale we will have a strong focus on plants that thrive in low light conditions. There are actually a lot of indoor plants available which really like low light levels!
There will also be other popular plants available, such as Fiddle Leaf Figs, Monstera Deliciosa, Devils Ivy's, Ferns, Palms, Rubber Plants, various Philodendrons, Mother in Law Tongues, Rhipsalis, and much more.
There will be hundreds of plants and you can get advice from an Interior Designer and learn how to look after your plants. Children and even pets are welcome at this event. Find out more on their Facebook page.
Please note - it would be a good idea to bring your own boxes, as the organisers only have a limited amount of these to carry your plants home in.
For lovers of plants, both these sales will be worth going to - prices are reasonable, and the range is excellent!
