"dogs and plants? how does that work, then?"
We've had this question a few times and there's a fairly simple answer!
We love plants & we love dogs.
During our time as Forge & Foliage, we've always welcomed dogs in store and have been recommending non-toxic plants on a daily basis.
We've reshaped our store & expanded our offering to include dog treats, food & accessories and 4 legged visitors can now order pup cups to enjoy while their humans indulge in our s'mores hot chocolate.
Not all pets will eat and play with all of your plants and we certainly don't judge pet owners who opt for toxic plants (our own dachshunds aren't at all interested in plants!) We 'll mostly stock pet-safe plants with a few exceptions that will be labelled accordingly.
Love plants but not dogs? You're still welcome. Love your dog but not plants? You're welcome too. Just visiting for a s'mores hot chocolate? Perfectly reasonable, they're incredible.
Asking for a pup cup without a dog? It's a little weird but hey, we'll entertain it.
We source a wide range of plants suitable for pet owners (particularly for pesky pups who've been known to chomp!) and non-pet owners alike.
From leafy calatheas & palms to hardy opuntia & cacti, our friendly team are always happy to advise you on plants to suit your conditions and needs, as well as aftercare tips.
You'll find terrariums created by us for sale in-store, along with fortnightly evening terrarium workshops.

s'mores hot chocolate & pup cup bar
Yes, your read that right. Both humans and doggos are treated to hedonism in this store!
For the humans: Seasonally-changing, giant handmade marshmallows toasted on top of a single-origin hot chocolate.
Perfect for hugging while you browse our store, or for a leisurely stroll through The Meadows nearby.
For the doggos: Gently warmed milk or oat milk, served with or without a big peanut butter smear.
We guarantee there's no chance of you getting as far as The Meadows before consumption.
