About Us

Who We Are

Hello! We are Autumn and James, proud owners of Planthaven Toronto. We are a couple-run, home business that all started in a small 500 square foot apartment in downtown Toronto. After a few years of growth, we are now located in Innisfil, ON. Our long time passion for nature, gardening and houseplants evolved and manifested itself into what we strive to do- making plants more accessible and sharing them with you so that you can build your own tropical oasis.

What We Do

Planthaven Toronto is a retail online plant store that specializes in uncommon and rare tropical house plants. The majority of our plants are sourced from different suppliers around the world. They come in all shapes and sizes, from many hot and humid environments, and they travel far and wide to get to where they are today. Once we recieve plants here in Canada, we give them lots of TLC (tender loving care) and over several months, they slowly become ready to be shipped to you.

Passion

Autumn at 3 years old planting flowers in her grandmother's planter

"My name is Autumn. As a young girl, I spent the warmer months of the year with my grandmother planting flowers, fruits and vegetables. Outings to nurseries were some of my most anticipated and memorable childhood moments. I remember spending hours outside in the garden watching my grandmother tend to her lush and beautiful garden that would gain speculation and amazement by neighbours and anyone who walked by. Her indoor houseplant collection was truly magnificent. Growing up in such an environment instilled a level of respect and appreciation for plants.

Moreover, my Indigenous identity and culture has also greatly influenced me and in turn our business, as I have been taught by my community what an integral role nature plays and the significance it has in our lives. I am passionate by nature (no pun intended) and have always enjoyed pursuing the many creative outlets that keep me going. Aside from the plant world, I attended culinary school and have worked in the industry professionally for a significant amount of time.

When James and I are not running Planthaven, you can most certainly find us whipping up something delicious in the kitchen or spending time with our furry friends, Dino and Dewey. James and I both believe wholeheartedly in the passion involved behind the plant hobby and lifestyle and what we do.

Plants have played an enormous role in our mental health and happiness. Knowing we might possibly bring you the same feeling as well as being a part of this amazing plant community together is what drives us the most."
