Octopus’s Garden: An innovative Australian florist just out of Sydney

Florist, Octopus’s Garden, opened just a few months back, showcasing hanging terrariums, plants in vintage pieces, and pineapple bouquets. Located in Long Jetty (about an hour and a half north of Sydney), the shop really struck a chord with us through their unique approach to plants: nothing is too weird, too wonderful or too stylish for the affordable prices.

Roses are rainbow coloured, books grow and sundaes contain cacti. It almost sounds like a psychedelic freak out… or a Beatles song (which is strange considering the store is called Octopus’s Garden and it’s located right next door to the Glass Onion Society).

Did we mention they also hold workshops? Yeah, you can make your own vertical garden.
