“If you tell a kid, “˜You’ve got to pick music or Instagram,’ they’re not picking music.”
I may be surrounded by plants day after day in the greenhouse, but I can assure you I never get tired of it. If you’re like me, you also can’t get enough of everything from the flora family, and these Instagram accounts are about as follow-worthy as it gets for getting your plant fix every day.
Altman Plants (@altmanplants)
If you’re a succulent savant, this one’s for you. A family-owned and operated business, Altman Plants is the largest grower and breeder of succulents in the world. Based in California, they’ve been growing their living treasures since 1975, and they definitely know their stuff. Their feed is alive with succulents of all shapes and sizes to satisfy your houseplant craving when your desk at work just can’t hold anymore. (Although, is there such a thing?)
Costa Farms (@costafarms)
Just as their tagline says, Costa Farms is passionate about plants, and it definitely shows on their feed. A grower of tropicals, houseplants, annuals, and more, they have it all and flaunt it with bright and beautiful lifestyle images that will certainly have you saying, “I want that.” If you’re looking for ideas to inspire your next plant project (or just looking for an excuse to bring more home) look no further.
Dewar Nurseries (@dewarnursuries)
For the biggest, brightest, and boldest colours, you won’t want to miss out on Dewar Nurseries. They may specialize in roses and fruits, but this nursery’s instagram is filled with so much more than that. From hibiscus to veronica, they put together the most beautiful, colour-blocked feed of plants that make designing next spring’s garden that much easier.
Dramm & Echter (@dramm_and_echter)
Another California native, Dramm & Echter have been making flowers look good since before instagram was ever around. Their top-quality, crisp photos make florals and foliage look simply irresistible and background-worthy. For the prettiest plants you’ll want to repost over and over again, you’ll definitely want to follow them.
A Canadian favourite, this family-run garden centre and berry farm is on the next level of Instagram greatness. Not only can you expect to see perfect plant pictures, but you can also enjoy drool-worthy snaps of their farm-fresh fruits. (Seriously, their strawberries are so red, every time I see them I want to reach into my phone to grab one just to taste the sweet, juicy flavour I know they have). While you’re there, don’t forget to follow their story, too, where they feature Heeman’s customer snaps!
Kurt Weiss Greenhouses, Inc. (@kurtweissgreenhouses)
What’s better than stunning photos of all your favourite plants? Stunning photos of your favourite plants with a DOG in them. Well, one dog at least. You’ll get your garden fix and your puppy fix all in one go with this one. Not only does Kurt Weiss have some of the most amazing photos of flowers, succulents, and more, they also on occasion feature their famous furry friend, Fritz Weiss!
Metrolina Greenhouses (@metrolinaghs)
As the largest single-site, heated greenhouse in the United States, you know you’ll get a year-round hit of beautiful blooms. With Metrolina on your feed, it’s always sunny springtime (even when the weather outside is a little more frightful than delightful). Their gorgeous garden favourites are sure to make you green with envy shortly after giving them a follow, but their hypnotic shots are sure to leave you wanting more! Plus, you’ll get the bonus of meeting the wonderful people who tend to their plants every day, which just makes it all that much better.
Dutch Growers (@dutchsaskatoon)
Another Canadian native, Dutch Growers prides themselves on being more than just your average garden centre. Not just about the plants (though they certainly have the quality), they’re all about everything lifestyle and their high-contrast photos of beautiful plants alongside high-quality homewares and clothes truly live up to the name. So, if you like your fabulous flora beauty shots to be served with a side of decor and fashion, you’ll definitely want to follow them.
Sheridan Nurseries (@sheridannurseries)
The Toronto-based Sheridan Nurseries compromises nothing when it comes to sensational snaps of plants. Their top-notch closeups make everything look so crisp and clear you’ll swear you can smell their floral fragrance on the air as you’re scrolling. They also like to show off unique and interesting ways you can display your plants, which makes them an ultimate go-to for figuring out your next move the next time you’re visiting the greenhouse!
Venture Out Nursery (@ventureoutnursery)
For the quirkiest, most unique photos of plants you’ll ever see, the tiny Venture Out Nursery from Whidbey Island has got all others beat. They love featuring not just cute candids of all their plant pals, but also their people-packed workshops and zany planters – like boots and shoes that don’t seem fit for anything but feet, but just look so good with plants pouring out of them! (Not to mention, I’m a sucker for anyone who’s not afraid to show off adorable stuffed mice holding picket signs!)
These Instagrams have got plant pics pinned down, and if you love fantastic flora, you won’t have to look much further. That is, of course, unless you’re not already following @salisburygreenhouse. Not to toot our own horn or anything, but not only will you see superb shots of our top-quality plants, you’ll also see cute candids and customer features because we believe that the people are the best thing in our greenhouse!
