Are you looking for the most instagrammable places in Seattle? Have you checked out any of the Seattle plant shops?
As I’ve scoured Seattle high and low for the best photo locations and Instagram worthy desserts and walls, I’ve found some incredible plants shops/plant spaces in Seattle. If you’re looking to add to your plant collection or want to visit a plant shop in Seattle, this blog post is for you!
Here are the 6 Most Instagram Worthy Seattle Plant Shops to Check Out:
1. Plant Shop Seattle in Capitol Hill
Address: 411 E Pine St, Seattle, WA 98122
Holly and I wandered into Plant Shop Seattle earlier this year. I originally was trying to find their second location in First Hill but Holly showed me this location in Capitol Hill.
The owner doesn’t allow DSLRs into the store but they kindly let us snap a few photos since the store wasn’t busy when we were in there. So if you do make a visit to the Seattle plant shop, make sure you only take iPhone photos!

2. Glasswing Greenhouse in Capitol Hill
Address: 1351 E Olive Way, Seattle, WA 98122
Located in Capitol Hill, Glasswing is a plant, clothing, and home good shops. The Glasswing Greenhouse is separate from Glasswing itself. When Holly and I wandered into this Seattle plant shop, I gasped. The entire space is beautiful! The Glasswing Greenhouse definitely belongs on the list for most Instagram worthy Seattle plant shops.
If you stop by this store, make sure you check out the upstairs area. You get a great view of the plants from upstairs!
3. Ravenna Gardens in University District
Address: 2600 NE University Village St, Seattle, WA 98105
Ravenna Gardens was probably my first plant shop I visited
and shot at in Seattle. Ravenna Gardens is located at University Village. I
went to undergrad and graduate school at the University of Washington so I’ve
spent a number of years walking around Uville and stopping by Ravenna Gardens.
If you’re shopping in Uville, I highly recommend stopping by
inside Ravenna Gardens. The store does an incredible job curating the space outside
4. Swanson Nursery in Greenwood/Ballard
Address: 9701 15th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117
Swanson Nursery has a long history in
Seattle. Founded in 1924, the Swanson’s Land of Flowers originally opened a
couple of greenhouses and flower fields. The nursery originally grew bulbs for
dahlias, lilies, and irises.
Today Swanson’s Nursery has a gift shop, a café, seasonal displays, and an assortment of both indoor and outdoor plants. My favorite time to visit Swanson’s Nursery is during the holiday season. The nursery does an incredible job putting the holiday décor up. They even bring in live reindeer!
5. Amazon Spheres in South Lake Union/Downtown Seattle
Address: 2111 7th Ave, Seattle, WA 98121
While the Amazon Spheres aren’t technically a plant shop, the three spheres are conservatories. The Amazon Spheres house over 40,000 plants from cloud forest regions from all over the world. The Canyon Living Wall, the Fernery, and the rest of the various plants are an incredible sight.
If you have the opportunity to visit the spheres or have a friend who works at Amazon, I highly recommend stopping by the Spheres!
6. Volunteer Park Conservatory in Capitol Hill
Address: 1400 E Galer St, Seattle, WA 98112
If you’re wanting to explore Seattle parks and are looking to immerse yourself in plants, I highly recommend stopping by the Conservatory at Volunteer Park. The Conservatory is a Victorian styled greenhouse. It originally opened in 1912 has gone through a series of improvements and renovations over the last 100+ years.
The Conservatory is open Tuesday-Sunday from 10am-4pm and it’s
closed on Mondays. It also cost $4 for an adult ticket and $2 for a kids
