Beautiful Plants

Plant arrived in beautiful, healthy condition. Thank you!

Happy

Ordered my snake plant in the Balconera planter in white. It arrived beautifully! I’ve ordered from my city plants in the past, in fact all the plants in my home are from city plants, and I’m not even a plant person, never had plants in my life, and I couldn’t be happier. I love their planters, so easy to care for, and so pleasing to the eyes. And their plants are of top quality. A big Thank you to the team at my city plants, for giving me a little green in my home. 🌹
