Where to Get Plants in Colombo

2021 Feb 23

With COVID-19 having taken over our lives and the restrictions in place, everyone had to find different forms of entertainment to spend their leisure time and keep them occupied. While some took up cooking, learned a new instrument, or discovered their hidden talents, others very earnestly and ardently became plant parents. Whether it is starting a little home garden or even nurturing a little plant, aesthetically kept on a shelf or table, going green and becoming one with nature is all the rage – and we are here for it!
