You Can Go On A Solo Plant Safari For A New Leafy Friend In Phoenix

You'll get 30 minutes of solo shopping bliss.
Dig It Gardens In Phoenix Offer Private Appointments In Their Shop

If you've been missing the greenery of nature, you can add some plants to your house to bring the outdoors to you. Dig It Gardens in Phoenix offer private appointments in their shop. You can stroll through a gorgeous garden and find your new plant buddy to take home.

To celebrate spring while practicing social distancing, this shop lets you schedule an appointment to visit and wander through their greenery in search of a new plant friend.

Dig It Gardens has everything from houseplants and adorable succulents to veggies you can grow from home.

You can book your appointment through their website, and each session gives you 30 minutes of uninterrupted access to their indoor and outdoor nursery area.

To keep the space clean and friendly, the staff sanitizes the gardens between each appointment, meaning you can dwell in the plant sanctuary with a sense of calm.

It's free to visit; however, there is a $25 minimum spending fee. The appointments run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with half an hour between each for cleaning.

Their gorgeous indoor and outdoor space is the perfect relaxation station to take your mind off things. According to Medical Daily, plants can improve your state of mind and well-being, so why not treat yourself to a little natural R&R?

We hear plant therapy is the newest way to destress, and this is a great place to surround yourself with lush potted plants and enchanting succulents while you browse for your new leafy housemate.

Snap a few photos in the jungle-like shrubbery and immerse yourself in this exotic oasis with stunning floral backdrops.

You can also order curbside veggies, herbs, and soil to make your garden, perfect for those homemade meals and cocktail garnish needs.

Their friendly staff is onsite for any questions or to help with suggestions for the perfect plant for you.

Is it considered drinking alone if your plant is there?
