Established in 2020, Verd was created out of the necessity of bring nature into homes and offices.
During lockdown and being a passionate houseplant enthusiast, I notice a growth in interest about houseplants in general and decided to make a business out of my hobby to share the joys of it with those interested in keeping plants at home, office or at work.
The business started online, then once restrictions was lifted our plants was being sold at the local Farmers Market, then at Pop Up Markets and after that Verd had a fixed stall at the Marina Market in Cork. In December 2021, I found the perfect spot in Cork City Centre and opened a permanent location, at Washington St.
All our plants are carefully curated and well maintained while waiting for their forever home. Each plant comes with a plant care guide tag, and additional care tips is added to each purchase, making it easier for you to find its perfect spot, work out the best water routine and keep your plant happy and thriving.
Our amazing staff can also give you plant advice when needed, as well as helping you in picking the right plant for your space, choosing pots or even making bespoke terrariums, bouquets and other botanic pieces.
