Manchester’s a great city, and we all know it, but sometimes we need a bit of green in our living space to help brighten up this autumn weather. So, we’ve created a roundup of the best, quirkiest and coolest shops to buy plants from in Manchester. Check it out below…

Check the new Northern Quarter kid on the block Nice Things

There’s a brand new plant shop that has only just opened its doors in the Northern Quarter. Run by the same people behind Glass House, the similarly aesthetically pleasing florist, this new addition to the green scene is sure to leave you wanting to pick up everything! From little cacti to huge palms, ornate terrariums to the perfect desk-sized money plant – Nice Things will not disappoint. See the terracotta walls and the LED lights for yourself!

Pick up a killer cocktail as you wander through the half-bar half-florist in Lost Cat

Lost Cat is a neighbourhood bar, also located in the buzzing Northern Quarter, serving cocktails and sandwiches all day which then transforms in the evening. Split over two floors with two bars and an outdoor terrace – the florist out the front is a brilliant addition to the place! With great cocktails and a whole load of wines and beers – this is definitely going to be different to your usual day out plant shopping!

Northern Flower is a friendly boutique flower shop run by a small team of dedicated, qualified florists with over 18 years of experience. The Tib Street store is filled with unusual plants in quirky containers, the best quality cut flowers and a whole selection of gifts. Check it out for the plants and stay for the friendly service and enthusiastic energy!

Immerse yourself in the greenery of Northern Lights

Mixing incredible plants, flowers, homeware and wine – Northern Lights in Ancoats is the type of place you could spend a whole day in! From beautiful bouquets to a wide selection of wine, this is definitely not your average florist. The shop sells a great range of homeware items, dog collars and other lifestyle items so why not combine your wine shop with your plant shop at this stunning location?

Experience the good vibes at Plant Shop nestled in the heart of Stockport

What began as just 100 mini cacti outside an office has now bloomed into the brick and mortar store in the beautiful Stockport Old Town. For Plant Shop, plants are part of the furniture! The small and friendly team are all about the positive energy that greenery provides – for wellbeing, interior design and overall good vibes. Inspired by a spontaneous, last-minute trip to Melbourne, Australia in 2016, Plant Shop is now a wonderful addition to the green scene in Manchester!
