Our Story - The journey of Plant Shanty

"My name is Katie Emory and I am the founder of The Plant Shanty with a passion for all things plants.

I would personally like to welcome you to The Plant Shanty family and tell you a little more about us.I started The Plant Shanty in January of 2020 after selling my marketing and design business. I had decided that I needed to get back to my “roots” and get involved with something that I love.

Ever since I was little, I have always been passionate about plants. Whether they were houseplants, or outside flowers, I was always up to my wrists in soil helping my Grandmother and Mother with their own plants. I loved to watch them grow and knowing I was a part of that process. As I have navigated through the ups and downs of life, plants have always been a constant for me. Caring for my plants provides me with a sense of peace and brings joy into my life.

I started The Plant Shanty with the mission of helping others find that same joy in plants as I have. As The Plant Shanty is spreading plant joy to our customers, we are also working towards building a plant community. Shopping for plants at The Plant Shanty is not an experience that ends after you have made your purchase. We continually touch base with you to see how your plants are growing, share plant tips we have learned through our own plant journeys, and be available if there is anything you or your plant might need to flourish. We post videos weekly on social media of new care tips and encourage other plant lovers to do the same.
In addition to me, our team is made up of exceptional women who are dedicated to providing you with the best possible plant experience. We have become a plant loving family and would like for you to join our family as well. You can find us on Facebook and Instagram too.

Always remember, we’re “rooting” for you."

Love,
Katie Emory
