From the beginning, our aim has been to create a garden shop unlike any other in the city. Our indoor and outdoor nursery contain a purposefully selected collection of flora — specimen house plants, hardy natives and ornamentals, and organic veggie starts — and fauna — red wriggler composting worms, chicken keeping supplies, fertilized bantam eggs, soil amendments, craft garden tools and more.
THE INDOOR GARDEN
At Pistils, you’ll always find a diverse and ever-evolving selection of unique indoor plants and stunning containers. From lush tropicals, to gorgeous succulents and cacti, to Tillandsia Air Plants big and small, we pride ourselves in not only matching up our customers with the right plant or container to suit their needs, but in offering expert advice on care and maintenance. We’d be happy to pot your plant for you. Check out our journal to learn about our newest plant favorites and tips for care.
THE OUTDOOR NURSERY
Offering a distinctive selection of plants that perform well in our unique Pacific Northwest climate and expert advice for their care and maintenance is the heart-and-soul of the Pistils Nursery vision.
From tried and true perennials, to hardy natives and gorgeous ornamentals, our outdoor nursery appeals to amateur gardeners and connoisseurs alike. As our climate affords us the ability to grow food nearly all year-round, we also offer a wide array of edibles — vegetable starts and seeds, bare root stock, fruits trees and more. We show our support for local farms and growers by sourcing the vast majority of our plants from a carefully selected group Willamette Valley nurseries.
We carry vegetable, herb and flower seeds with a focus on organic and heirloom varieties, plus bulbs and cover crops. In addition to bags of soil and compost, several soil blends and basic soil amendments are available by the scoop in our bulk bins to ensure the success of your new plants. Our limited line of specialty garden tools–such as Hori Hori knives, brass plant misters, and Felco tools–help you cultivate interior and exterior landscapes.
From red wriggler composting worms, to bulk chicken-keeping supplies, to mason bee boxes, Pistils is an essential stop for those interested in bringing extra life to their outdoor spaces. Need some advice on animal husbandry? Visit our shop, or check out our favorite resources.
Visit our flock of exotic bantam chickens, and chat with our landscape design team about the Pistils Metro Coop, recently honored on Houzz. If you love them as much as we do, talk to us about procuring some fertile eggs for your incubator or broody hens. And don’t forget to visit us on an upcoming Pullet Day to pick up some started birds to begin or supplement your flock.
