Thousands of indoor plants (and shoppers) will once again overrun Plant 3 in Bowden this weekend. Melbourne-based green thumbs The Jungle Collective are back with a two-day festive edition of their now-renowned indoor-plant sales.

Previously more than 170 different species have been on sale, including fiddle leaf figs, monstera, bird of paradise, devil’s ivy, a whole heap of ferns, plus more. There’ll also be “designer” pots, style advice from staff and plant-care tips from a horticulturalist.

Those ballsy enough to dress up as Santa will get $5 off their purchase. Required: Santa hat and beard. Recommended: board shorts.

Planning to buy up big? You may want to bring a box to carry your plants home in, there will only be a limited number on-site.

The Jungle Collective indoor-plant sale is on Saturday December 15 (8am to 4pm) and Sunday December 16 (10am to 2pm) at Plant 3, Bowden. There are free, ticketed time slots. Shoppers can register online now (you can only book one ticket per person). Children under 12 don’t need a ticket. Keep an eye on the Facebook event for more details.
