York's go-to place for healthy, exotic house plants. York's Urban Jungle!

Monday: 10:30 - 5:30pm Tuesday: CLOSED Wednesday - Saturday 10:30 - 5:30pm Sunday: 11 - 4pm

Since opening in late January 2018, Botanic has become York's go-to place for healthy, exotic and unusual house plants.

The ethos of Botanic is simple; to help people greenify their homes and businesses with beautiful and healthy plants and to provide customers with tailored advice on the plants that will fair best in their space and appropriate care instructions to keep the indoor jungles thriving.

Staff are highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic about house plants (all with large collections themselves!) and love nothing more than enthusing people about house plants and helping them with tips on how to care for, and expand, their collection. Staff are also more than happy to help troubleshoot any plant issues people may have post-purchase via e-mail, social media and in person.

Constantly striving to provide interesting and coveted house plants, Botanic take plant requests from customers and do their best to source these plants from the wide network of growers the shop has access to. We also offer repotting services in the spring and summer months.

Botanic staff are also available to visit businesses to gain first-hand experience of the space that requires greenifying and to advise on the best plants for the location. Plant maintenance is also available as an additional service to ensure the plants within your business are kept looking lush and healthy. Botanic also host regular workshops in York and beyond.

Workshops previously held include tropical terrarium, cacti/succulent terrarium and kokodama workshops. Plant swap and plant surgery events are also planned for 2024. Watch this (green) space!

Botanic is open every day of the week apart from Tuesdays - be sure to check social media! If you can't make it to our shop, visit us @botanicyork or on our website at


“We believe that plants enrich our daily lives (often without us even realising). They bring colour and vitality to our busy lives. They improve our air quality, reduce stress and boost productivity. They can aid relaxation but also cultivate community and conversation. Our team is delighted to share our plant passion and energy with customers locally and across the UK.”
