A family’s love of plants will soon blossom into Lubbock’s latest oasis, offering hundreds of plants, supplies, and a relaxing space to “let the good times grow.”
With the slogan of “let the good times grow,” owner Chelsea Kidder hopes to share her passion with the community through the upcoming Dutch House of Plants, 3413 49th St. The name comes from her family’s Dutch heritage, and the plant passion comes from her mother.
“Part of the reason I love plants, and people love plants, is it is a great way to connect with people,” Kidder said. “It had always been a dream to create our own plant store. Everything happened to line up one day, and within a week, we were just like ‘I guess it’s happening.’ We’re really excited.”
The Dutch House will offer a variety of indoor and outdoor plants, garden containers, tools, and additional items for budding and expert horticulturalists.
“We have everything to help you be successful with your plants,” Kidder said. “And if your plant is not doing well, bring it in. We’ll try to figure our what the problem is.”
There will also be a make-your-own coffee bar, a cozy seating area, and a room for upcoming events and classes.
The grand opening celebration will be Aug. 12, and will include vendors, McPherson Cellars, and other specials to be announced later.
