Growing tomatoes year-round is made easier with Bloomscape’s Potted Micro Tomato Plant—which sprouts from PanAm Seed. The healthy plant arrives in nutrient-rich soil and a pot that it won’t outgrow (in one of five different colors). This particular varietal remains compact even through budding and thus won’t need to be transferred to a bigger vessel or garden. Its tomatoes veer toward the smaller side but can grow a bit bigger with ideal light, water and pruning.
NYC-based mushroom cultivator Smallhold offers at-home grow kits for two varietals: Lion’s Mane and Blue Oyster. The latter is available now, with shipping across the US. A grow kit “block” arrives inside a plastic bag and all you need to do to prep it is cut a small X on both sides of the bag and tightly rubber band the top of the bag shut. There are plenty of specific directions for temperature, light, watering and harvesting, and your mushrooms should be fully grown in as soon as a week.
The sibling to the Kaya 3-Piece Bowl Planter, this two-piece iteration—designed by Justina Blakeney for her LA-based company Jungalow—proves itself to be just as charming.

These planters offer a beautiful and sophisticated home for your plants.
Composed of BPA-free plastic drawn entirely from recycled milk jugs, WallyGro’s Wally Eco Vertical Garden Wall Planter mounts to walls with an easy-to-affix bracket (included).

Available in several sizes and hues, this 100% cotton rope planter has been ice-dyed by Charlotte Rigby (aka No Slouch Studios) in London. Made by hand, this particular iteration measures 12cm tall, with an equal sized base. Perfect for hiding plastic pots and adding extra color to a room.
Areaware’s tall stoneware stacking planter (which stands eight inches wide and eight inches tall) comprises two parts—a planter and a drainage dish—that nestle into one another to create one clean silhouette. With holes for excess water to escape, the planter is super-functional and easy to clean, while remaining an attractive object for the home. Also available in a smaller four-inch tall size.
Subtle but dually lush and gorgeous, this bouquet of green and ivory roses and winter foliage from Winston Flowers is available in five different sizes and can be delivered anywhere in the United States for the month of December. Beyond a pretty posy, the purchase of this gift benefits the brand’s Charity in Bloom program, with 20% of the purchase price given to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and NYC’s Madison Square Boys & Girls Club.
German artist BD Graft’s debut book, Living Things is full of collages and paintings of plants and fruits—some minimal, some colorful and complex, all utterly charming. Published by Zioxla, designed by Affaire, and printed and bound in Barcelona, the softcover book is composed of FSC-certified paper sourced from responsibly managed forests. Further, for every book purchased, one tree is planted.
Arranging Things (aka Lisa Milberg and Leo Forssell), an interior design firm and shop in Stockholm, focuses exclusively on “ambience-related” goods. One such item is this “FLOWERS” cap. Made from 100% cotton canvas, this six-panel cap features contrasted embroidered lettering, and an adjustable strap.
Klong’s striking Svante watering can is bold and sculptural, so it can easily double as a decorative piece. Designed by Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle, the brass piece has a matte finish to prevent water stains. Also available in glossy nickel or copper, the vessel stands at 30cm tall.
Made from pulped eucalyptus and beech and bioreactor-grown algae, Vollebak’s aptly named Plant and Algae T-shirt can be composted and all fabrics and inks are produced from sustainable plantations that are FSC- and PEFC-certified. The supple blend of lyocell from trees and linen from plants proves soft and comfortable, and the algae-made ink won’t run or bleed—or pollute waterways. The brand affirms, if composted, this garment will be worm food in 12 weeks.
Made for desks, window sills and other small spaces, the Hydropod by Brooklyn-based W&P is a five-piece hydroponic planter set made for at-home soil-free farming. The process leaves a significantly smaller footprint—using a nutrient water solvent as a food source. Made from plastic and frosted glass, the subtle design will offer a pop of color once your herbs start to bloom.
Available in three color combinations (pink/smoky blue, green/blue or red/blue), this reversible glass vase—designed by Tara Ashe—is both versatile and pretty.

An all-natural air purifier, the Laurentii Snake Plant absorbs toxins through its leaves and produces pure oxygen—perfect for keeping the air in your room clean and crisp.

This plant also comes in an eight-inch-tall earthenware pot with pre-existing drainage holes.
With a matte exterior and a glossy interior, Brooklyn-based Light + Ladder’s ceramic watering can boasts a beautiful natural hue and an elegant design. A thoughtful alternative to flimsy plastic iterations, this 12-inch-tall item can be displayed alongside the plants it nourishes with pride.
