THE BOUTIQUE FAIR

THE BOUTIQUE FAIR

We hope you've been enjoying visiting the new Tiong Bahru store? We've had a fantastic, warm welcome to the neighbourhood, which makes us feel like we belong :)

If you have visited and liked it, pretty please can you give us a google review to help us get accepted in our new 'hood? We read them and we do care what you all think.

Next up for us is the Boutique Fair. This edition will be running 29-31 March at the F1 Pit Building. As usual we'll have a booth in the Boutiques Social area, on the 3rd floor near the dining space. 

We have a brand new range of ugly-cute planters we'll be launching at the Fair and many, many beautiful plants, ready to take home and make you smile.

HELLO TIONG BAHRU!

HELLO TIONG BAHRU!

Today we formally announce the launch of our second store in the beautiful Tiong Bahru neighbourhood. 

We've made final tweaks to the display, filled up the shelves with the plant varieties you like and our best looking planters and the repotting table is clear for action. In short, we're ready to help Tiong Bahru do plants with style!

Thank you so much to all of you who came to visit us this weekend, during our soft launch. We hope you like the shop and will be back to see us soon.

We knew we had picked the right location for good looking stuff when we spotted Henry Golding over breakfast in TB Bakery. Henry, if you read this (which is admittedly an unlikelihood), sorry for disturbing your breakfast - we'd love to help you choose a nice plant for your place next time you're in town!

Address:
55 Tiong Bahru Road,
#01-02, 160055
(next to Chapter 55 on the corner of Tiong Poh Rd)

WE'RE COMING TO A NEW LOCATION!

WE'RE COMING TO A NEW LOCATION!

Last year when we finished our trial in Orchard we asked you where we should go next.

Some of you had a great suggestion that matched our aspirations exactly. So we checked it out, managed to find a perfect spot and can now announce that your neighbourhood plant shop will be coming to a new neighbourhood very soon!

We'll be launching our second permanent store full of gorgeous plants and planters on 1st March and we can't wait to open our doors.  Expect more of the plants with style that you've come to know from Singapore's houseplants specialist.

We'll be announcing the location with images in our next blog post. Look out for teasers and giveaways in the meantime on our Instagram. Stay tuned!

SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVES

Hello and Happy New Year from your neighbourhood plant shop!

We've decided to start 2019 responsibly, by reducing our waste and helping you minimise your environmental impact when you shop with Tumbleweed. We're gonna do this in three ways and the good news is you stand to benefit from each!

First, we want to REDUCE the amount of packaging we give you. We know you need something to help you carry away your new plants and you love our Tumbleweed paper bags, so we're not going to stop giving them, but as an incentive to reduce the volume, we're going to give $2 off every order at our store when you don't take any bags. So remember to keep hold of them and bring them back next time!

We also go through mountains of plastic plant pots that we try to REUSE as much as possible but we still end up with lots sitting spare. From now on we will be giving these away to anyone who wants them - we know lots of you like to do your own propagation. Simply ask us next time you're in store and we'll try to find one that's the right size for you. Note, we don't clean them, so you will need to do that at home.

We want to help you RECYCLE your waste too! If you run a business that produces coffee grounds or egg shell waste, please get in touch! We are interested to take the waste from you to use as organic fertiliser which we'll use and distribute free to our customers. Customers - just bring along a container to take it away and you can take as much as you want :) 

Community engagement and sustainability are core to our ethos and these are some of the ways in which we'll make a contribution. If you have ideas for other things we can do, we'd love to hear from you, please get in touch to let us know. Click Here To Email Us

Wishing you a great year ahead.

OUR TOP 10 PLANTERS OF THE YEAR

OUR TOP 10 PLANTERS OF THE YEAR

One year ago we wrote a piece on our top 10 plants of the year.

This year we decided to think back on the pots, stands and other plant display pieces that have been trending over the last 12 months.

Once again, in no particular order, and for you to debate at your leisure, here’s our pick of what’s been hot for plant displays in 2018:

          

1. Terrazzo Cylinders – Terrazzo designs are in trend and these cylindrical pots have been a hit in every size and colour we’ve stocked them

          

2. Dreamers' Pots – Perennially popular, these cute little pots are a no-brainer for many of you when filled with a succulent or two

          

3. Mid Century Plant Stand – These versatile stands have been popular ever since we launched them and the popularity hasn’t diminished in 2018

          

4. Black and White Large Pots – These large pots are a popular choice for housing Fiddle-leaf Ficus trees because good looking large planters are hard to find. We now have a new range of big pots, so the choice just grew!

         

5. Deco stand – It’s an elegant looking stand, lightweight and good value. Which has prompted many of you to get one for home 


         

6. The Misfits – We loved these handmade planters the moment we found them. This year we have expanded the range to include more characterful ceramic chums. Have you got one on your side table yet? 

         

7. Hanging Globes – Hanging plants is such a great way to create the feel of a more green home. These globes are a beautiful home for airplants and other small varieties   

         

8. Capra Designs Pots – A Capra Designs pot is a sure-fire way to make your display stand out. Their distinctive designs made in an ecologically friendly resin add a unique touch to any space. We have been stocking their brand new range since November

          

9. Tall Plant Stands – These cement pot stands have been a hit with all of you looking for a way to level up your display. It's been a popular choice for both living rooms and office and retail spaces

          

10. Seagrass baskets – For their value and versatility and their natural look, seagrass baskets have been a constantly popular pairing for floor standing plants

BIG POTS...

BIG POTS...

That’s Big with an elongated “i”. Biiiiiig pots!

If you've found it hard to find nice pots for large plants or trees, this one's for you.

We know it’s not easy and that’s why we went out to find a range that meets requirement A (biiiig enough) and requirement B (looks good enough to go in your living room or on your patio).

Having found a selection that ticks the boxes, we’re delighted to bring them to you, available from today in our showroom and coming soon to our web store.

We’ve got plenty of styles, colours and sizes - ranging from 20cm to a whopping 55cm diameter - so you’re sure to find something that meets your need. Take a peek above and below (all the pots you see come in at least 3 different sizes) and come by soon to take one home with you.

Big love,

Tumbleweed
