Who We Are
Planthaven Toronto is a couple-run, home business located in downtown Riverside Toronto. We are Autumn and James, proud owners of Planthaven Toronto. Our long time passion for gardening and houseplants is what sparked the idea of creating a service that would make it more accessible for other fellow plant lovers to fulfill their plant collections.
What We Do
Planthaven Toronto is a retail online plant store that specializes in uncommon and rare tropical house plants. A majority of the plants that we sell are sourced from different suppliers around the world such as the Americas and Southeast Asia.
We stand firm on our honesty and trust by offering fair market pricing, good quality plants, and live support at all times.
We believe in all aspects of our business in order to respectfully and appropriately satisfy your needs. For all your plant related questions and concerns, you can count on us.
We pledge to provide the best customer service as possible. Every order and every customer is a special one to us and we will always value your business.
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. 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.
Last but not least, it is always important to have fun. All of our plant sourcing is done in person as we travel to distant greenhouses and nurseries to find rare gems to share with you. Travelling to gather these plants brings great joy and purpose to our lives and we hope that by providing the ease and accessibility of our plants that they bring happiness to you as well.
