About Us

"Your green thumb lies on the other side of understanding your plant's unique needs."

-Quontay Turner, Founder  

How many times have you been captivated by a plant in a store, only to take it home and have it only live a few weeks? It can be frustrating not knowing how to care for plants when you bring them home and that is why Founder Quontay Turner started Emerald City. 

Emerald City Plant Shop is a small Black womxn-Owned, plant shop based in Norwood. Our focus is on teaching people how to best care for their plants while providing quality plant selections, gardening supplies, and unique gifts to help make you, as well as the spaces you occupy feel beautiful.


Our Backstory

In 2020 the world came to a screeching halt.  Sweatpants became the standard work attire and our living rooms, beds, kitchen tables, and quiet corners became our new offices.  With more time at home (and for many of us alone), the desire to find new hobbies and make our spaces more inviting amidst the chaos outside, grew exponentially.  The solution? House plants.

Whether you are new to the plant community, or like our founder took the Pandemic as a valid reason to transform your existing plant collection into a full on love letter to the Amazon Rain Forest; plants have always been a key factor in mental and physical health and more now than ever.
