EXPERTISE - We are changing the way you shop for houseplants.


Green Lady Gardens™ is changing the way you shop for houseplants. ​​ "But I kill plants!" No. You don't kill plants; you've just never had the right one. Most stores & nurseries don't help you find the most suitable plants for your lifestyle & living environment. They also don't provide on-site education or send you home with proper & detailed care information. As a result, you are often set up for failure instead of success. GLG's founder, Jessica, is here to change that. She wants you to be not just successful, but empowered. Jessica knows a prosperous houseplant relationship is based on 3 things: 1) Finding a houseplant that matches your light conditions, experience, & care commitment; 2) having healthy options to choose from; & 3) knowing proper care when you go home. When you visit GLG you will use a one-of-a-kind assessment system to find houseplants that match your skill level & living environment. Then, you will choose a specific houseplant (or two or three) from inventory that was hand-picked for happiness & healthiness from a trusted local greenhouse. Finally, you will receive on-site houseplant care education (if you'd like) & you will take home a unique care card for all or most of your houseplant purchases. Our goal is for you to leave confident & ready to have a prosperous relationship with plants. There is a plant for everyone. Let's find it together!




EXPERIENCE - We want you to leave filled with joy, empowered to own plants, & inspired to live creatively.


Jessica grew up in Southern California & spent a lot of time in colorful San Diego, a city defined by its Latino art & design aesthetic. Later in life, she traveled & studied conservation in various countries. Jessica found that she felt more positive, playful, & inspired in cultures, communities, & cities that embraced the use of color. The bright blue doors on homes in Western Mongolia, Aboriginal dot art in Australia, & vivid textiles in Peru brought her immense joy. As she collected these organically occurring moments of positivity & connection, committing to a life of joy became a core value.

When designing the Green Lady Gardens' storefront, Jessica’s goal was to spread happiness in order to spark, share, & spread joy. She did this in the best way she knew how - through an immersive experience of plants & colors. In many ways, the GLG storefront has become an artistic expression of Jessica’s personality. The store draws inspiration from some of her most vivid memories from her travels & studies, including the bold Mexican pottery from her childhood & the nature & colorful artisan textiles of Latin America.

When you visit Green Lady Gardens, you will find healthy & happy plants, a large selection of colorful pottery, unique home decor items, handmade items from local & international artisans, & plant related tools & accessories.




ETHICS - We are committed to socially responsible & culturally conscious business practices.


Since day one, GLG has been committed to socially responsible & culturally conscious business practices that benefit & show respect for the Latino* communities we draw inspiration from. Our business practices include: —Sourcing as many products as possible from fair trade organizations & local or international artisans. In particular, we source all Latin American products from fair trade organizations, Latino family-owned businesses, or Latino artists. Meet some of our artists. —Donating at least 5% of profits to non-profit organizations that address issues important to us. This includes environmental protection & social justice, empowering youth through the arts & environmental engagement, & supporting the Latino population of Colorado through programs that provide social, political, environmental, educational, & cultural benefits. In 2020, we donated over $2,000 in cash & in-kind contributions! View the list of organizations we donate to & inquire about in-kind donations. —Hiring a diversity & inclusion consultant for eight weeks to: 1) Lead justice, diversity, equity, & racial sensitivity trainings & discussions; 2) perform a cultural appropriation audit to ensure we have not & are not appropriating culture in order to prevent any individual harm that such a perception may cause; & 3) help us better communicate our business practices, history, ethics, & values.
—Sharing the joy & therapeutic benefits of plants with diverse students in Title 1 schools through the owner’s foundation, Primary Plants, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit. We are currently looking for schools & classrooms to collaborate with. Learn more about Primary Plants.
—Supporting & promoting Colorado’s Latino artist community by featuring a new local Latino artist every month. Learn more about this month’s featured artist. Being a member of the Art District on Santa Fe. We are always looking for ways to deepen our engagement with & support of this community that we call home. Contact us to explore collaborations. * We value, respect, & support non-binary individuals & the inclusive sentiment of “Latinx.” However, this term excludes the monolinguist Spanish-speaking community that does not recognize & cannot pronounce the word. After much research & discussion, GLG has chosen to abide by Spanish language rules & use “Latino”. Please let us know if you prefer to be called “Latinx” & we will gladly do so. We welcome civil discussion about this issue.
