About the Author:

Andrew Gaumond is the Editorial Director at Petal Republic and a passionate content creator around all things flowers, houseplants, and gifts.

Andrew has trained professionally in the floristry industry and has personally hand-tested 100s of flower and plant delivery services throughout the United States.

For this guide to the best plant shops and live plant delivery services in Portland, Oregon, Andrew consulted our first-hand product reviews, consolidated verified brand and service reviews, and factored in recommendations from readers and other editorial staff members at Petal Republic.

How Petal Republic Picks and Tests the Best Plant Shops and Live Plant Delivery Services in Portland:

Our fundamental mission at Petal Republic is to showcase exceptional houseplant delivery specialists across a global network of cities where we live and work. Here are the key criteria Andrew looked for in the best plant shops and live plant delivery services in Portland: 

  • Live Plant Collections: we assessed the breadth, quality, and customization options across the shop’s plant collections, including pet-friendly plants, houseplants suitable to varying light conditions, the number of size options, and potting styles to work within various interior settings.
  • Packaging and Plant Health: we assessed how robust the packaging was to protect the live plants in transit in addition to the materials used and whether elements could be recycled or repurposed. Receiving houseplants in the mail presents several challenges, particularly during freezing winters and hot summers.
  • Shopping and delivery: we look for the best customer experience. In particular, websites and shopping channels that are easy to navigate, have smooth and straightforward purchase functions, clearly represent on screen what the customer will actually receive, and provide choice and flexibility with ordering and delivery.
  • Arrival Times: we looked for live plant delivery services that offered a range of shipping options across Portland, including same-day, next-day, or specified-day flower delivery services.
  • Customer feedback: based on our own plant shopping experiences, speaking to other recent customers directly, recommendations and opinions from industry experts, as well as consolidating broader reviews from the Petal Republic team and benchmarks across social media and other channels. 
  • Sustainability: plant delivery services in Portland, like any industry, have a responsibility to improve and promote sustainable business practices. Accordingly, we embrace those who are instigating change and working to make the planet a better, cleaner place today and in the future.
