Welcome to Pistils Nursery
We believe that plants are transformative.
In a world full of distractions, plants keep us grounded. Much like we do, plants need care. They remind us how we must tend to ourselves and to others. They warm and enliven our spaces, allowing us to connect with the natural world in our everyday experience.
Plants enrich our lives and we believe that this should be accessible to all.
Founded in 2001, Pistils is more than a nursery. We’re an experience. Our brick and mortar stores in Portland, Oregon, are sanctuaries of green within the city, conservatory-style oases that invite visitors to linger and to learn. Each package we ship from our online marketplace contains this same spirit. Above all, we bring passion, expertise and attentive care to each interaction.
Whether you’re purchasing a plant, seeking a solution, or just passing by for a little inspiration, we welcome and thank you.
1% for the Planet
We know that shipping has a big impact on the environment, and strive to reduce our footprint. Our shipping practices reflect Pistils' commitment to sustainability.
Offset: We partner with a local nonprofit to offset the carbon emissions from our shipments. That means that we (not you!) pay an extra fee so that each and every box we ship out is carbon neutral.
Reduce: We've done countless hours of trial and error to reduce the amount of materials necessary to pack each shipment, while still ensuring a safe and successful delivery every time.
Reuse: We're committed to reducing our reliance on single-use plastics, and to keeping what little plastic we do use out of the landfill. We save the plastics that we get from our shipments and reuse them when packing your orders. If you find a plastic sleeve or piece of bubble wrap in your box, it has been reused!
Recycle: Down to the paper tape used to seal our boxes, we strive to use fully recyclable packing materials made with post-consumer content. To that end, we recently transitioned from plastic bubble wrap and bio packing peanuts to 100% paper void fill and cushion.
