New York City Plant Delivery FAQ:

There are a number of excellent NYC based garden centers and plant stores in addition to several stand out online plant delivery specialists that serve the city extensively. Some of our favorites include Horti, Greenery Unlimited, Rooted, My City Plants, Bloomscape, The Sill, Terrain, UrbanStems, and Leon and George. 

Many local New York City plant stores and Garden Centers in addition to several online plant delivery specialists provide a range of standard and expedited plant delivery services to homes throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. Most use a range of innovative packaging technology to ensure plants (of all shapes and sizes) arrive healthy and undamaged.

Plant delivery is often included free on orders over a certain value (typically $50+). There may be additional delivery fees ranging for $5 to $30 for expedited or weekend delivery slots or if the plant is of a particularly large size. 

The Sill and Terrain are both highly regarded for their fake plant collection. Other notable stores include West Elm, Crate & Barrel, Joss & Main, and CB2. 

The New York City Flower District (28th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue) is home to numerous plant shop specialists. Here you’ll find classic and rare interior and outdoor plants in amongst fresh seasonal flowers and more.

Whilst every house plant will have its own particular preferences in terms of light, temperature, water, and feeding, many plants will thrive with the correct care and attention in New York City. Houseplants are native to tropical and humid climates so where possible look to boost the moisture level in the air if possible to negate the effects of dry, low-humidity winters in-particular (note – this doesn’t mean excess watering). Also, focus on picking the best species – Snake Plants, Monstera, Succulent Jades, and Cacti are well regarded to tolerate these conditions.
