Whether you want to jump on that succulent trend or put your green thumb to the test with one of those fiddle leaf figs you see in all the design magazines, these local shops have the plants and the people to help you bring some life and color into your home.

Liberty Park Florist & Greenhouse

In 2016, Liberty Park was inducted into the Inlander's Hall of Fame after being selected by readers as their favorite florist for 10 years. You can count on Liberty Park when you want to order or pick up an indoor European garden basket or succulent garden. They also deliver. 1401 E. Newark Ave., Spokane 535-5924

Parrish & Grove

Parrish & Grove Botanicals offers custom flower arrangements, exotic house plants, along with an in-store build-your-own-terrarium bar. Bring your own container or purchase one at the shop, then start creating with sand, greenery and even embellishments like polished stones and crystals. Parrish & Grove also offers private parties and public workshops that will teach you to create everything from succulent gardens and terrariums to herb gardens and cloche flower arrangements. Saranac Commons, 19 W. Main St., Spokane 838-7784

The Plant Farm

Tucked in a Spokane Valley neighborhood, the Plant Farm has one of the largest selections of houseplants in the region, including an impressive array of tropical plants. They grow all their plants here — so this is also the place to come for advice when your ficus is dropping leaves. Free planting classes are offered throughout the year, along with some paid workshops. Come November, take the poinsettia tour, where more than an acre of poinsettias (upwards of 40,000) in 20+ colors are on display. 14208 E. Fourth Ave., Spokane Valley 926-9397

Ritter's Garden & Gift

Ritter's has been selling indoor and outdoor plants and doling out expert advice for 70 years. Whether you want to plant a cactus in a teacup or invest in a 6-foot tall indoor tree, Ritter's has a massive selection of cactus, succulents, spider plants, orchids and more. Pick up a pre-made terrarium here, or take one of the many workshops and learn to build your own succulent or windowsill garden. 10120 N. Division St., Spokane • 467-5258

Vanhoff's

While the bulk of Vanhoffs inventory is more geared toward your outdoor garden (and we are huge fans of their truly unique offerings — like hydrangea trees), they also deserve mention here for their well-curated selection of indoor plants and gifts, and their classes which will have you growing your own culinary herbs indoors or planting stunning succulent arrangements. We highly recommend their evergreen porch pot and holiday wreath workshops, as well. 1844 N. Government Way, Coeur d'Alene • 208-930-4423
