Lovers of greenery, between us, we understand each other! When you have the bug, it's for life and it's very difficult to stop: you can't help but buy it over and over again. This is why our house quickly becomes a real little jungle. But what an adorable little jungle!

Among the most pleasant places to buy green plants are the outdoor markets. From spring and for the whole summer, nurseries settle there and obviously sell seasonal plants and flowers, but also an impressive variety of indoor green plants. We fell in love with the Atwater Market which, in summer, receives several producers and nurseries. A little tour and you will find something for your happiness, that's for sure!
