6 Great Vegan Shops You Should Visit Around Columbus
Becoming a plant lady was never in my plans.
To be honest, my first deep dive into the life of houseplants was not a success. I had managed to kill even the simplest green things, but I was determined not to give up. I’m lucky that I live here in Columbus, where there are some magical plant stores that have helped me succeed.
I’m no expert but I’ve kept some plants alive for an entire year, which seems like a huge accomplishment. Adding houseplants to your home has proven benefits such as reduced stress, increased productivity, and even the potential to increase the quality of the air you breathe.
Here’s where to go in Columbus when you want to liven up your home with some new greenery.
Jewelweed offers both fresh flowers and houseplants, which means it’s the perfect place to turn to when you’re looking to liven up a space. From pretty bouquets to assorted cacti, this cute little spot in Franklinton is a one-stop shop.
location: You’ll find Jewelweed at 391 W Rich St, Columbus, OH 43215.
