Our Roots

Jennifer and Melissa

We started Plant Gather with one goal in mind: providing healthy, sought-after plants that fit your space and plant knowledge. Our deep love for plants and each other inspired us to create a space for kindred spirits to connect, grow our collections, and share love for our plant babies! We are a mother-daughter duo and have been collecting plants for years. If houseplants intimidate you, reach out to us and we will help you choose plants that suit your needs. At Plant Gather, you're in good hands since we have walked the road from black to green thumbs. If we can do it, so can you and we hope to be a part of your journey towards cleaner, greener living spaces!

MACKENZIE

Hi, I’m Mackenzie!

My plant love has been life long, but over the last few years it’s become my haven- adding more and more plants as life gets crazier and crazier.

To me, being a ‘plant person’ is as much about community as it is about the plants. It’s about sharing your favourite tips, your woes when you lose that Albo wet stick, having someone who will *ALWAYS* hype up your next rare plant purchase, and someone who will never get tired of being spammed with your latest plant pictures.

I knew after my first order with Plant Gather, that I’d be sticking around but I had no idea it would lead to an amazing new adventure making video content for the @plantgather Reels and IGTV! When they say ‘we’re your people’ they truly do mean it, and I am so excited to be a part of it. Follow me on Instagram @prettyplanty

 

CANDY

My name is Candice, but everyone calls me Candy because I am saweeeeeeet!

My love for growing things started when I was little in my grandpa's garden in Abbotsford, watching him in his greenhouse building a rainwater collection system. I have been gardening for as long as I can remember but in 2019 after my dad passed away, a random snake plant was left on my front porch. This was the beginning of my love for houseplants. That single snake plant has turned into over 170 tropicals and counting. Couldn't be happier to have the chance to be growing with a team, and be writing blog posts for my fellow plant people 🪴

ALEXIS

My love for plants has been life long. As a kid, I spent my time in the garden with my dad, learning his tips and snacking away on fresh peas and tomatoes. Mother Nature’s work really is beautiful... and tasty! 

I started my houseplant collection when I bought my first house. I lived away from my family and was gifted some plants when my daughter was born. Next thing I knew, I was buying more than groceries whenever I went shopping. Then a friend give me some cuttings to root. That's when everything changed! It became a thing in my circle of friends to share and exchange cuttings. Now here I am, obsessed with plants and working the socials, chatting with plant people all over Canada! I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the Plant Gather team! If you have questions about plant care or curious about what's happening next in the shop, open the chat on our website. I'm excited to talk to you!
