Are you a green thumb or a black thumb? Do your house plants thrive, or do they continue to exist only because they are plastic and you can’t kill them? Either way – Foliage, a former pop-up now brick-and-mortar plant shop can either fuel your passion for plants or teach you how to improve your track record with them!
Foliage House Plant Shop & Design Studio was founded by Yasmeen Gonzalez. She initially began growing and designing house plants as a personal creative outlet, but soon found she wanted to share her love for plants with others through education, encouragement and by designing beautifully arranged house plants for others to enjoy in their homes or businesses.
In her new shop, which is located in the Dewitt Building at 453 Pollasky Ave Suite #102 in Old Town Clovis, Yasmeen helps customers select the perfect plants, helps them repot or revive their own and event teaches classes on proper plant care.
Yasmeen’s Plant Rehab class (which you can find by searching Foliage events on Eventbrite) offers 2.5 hours of instruction for guests, who each bring one houseplant that’s either struggling or beyond struggling. Each guest will be walked through what likely went wrong, how to prevent it from happening again and if it’s possible to revive the plant, they will find out the steps or even complete some of the steps in the shop. If the loss of the plant is just too much to bear, guests can drown their sorrows over sips of wine, with Foliage also offers with the class. One-on-one private instruction and assistance with plant re-potting and revival is also offered for $45.
Foliage offers a variety of unique and exotic plants as well as plants that are very popular at this moment in time like Fiddle Leaf Fig trees and Monstera plants. Additionally, ceramic pots, hand-woven jute macramé hangers and other plant accessories are available for purchase. Yasmeen also loves supporting other local creatives and artists – so you can find plant related art pieces, prints and stickers by local artist Art by Elowyn for sale in store.
Whether you’re shopping for plants or in need of help with your own plants, you’ll definitely want to make time for a visit to Foliage in Clovis soon. Beyond the great selection and assistance, you’ll be able to look forward to, the shop itself is incredibly beautiful and very “Instagram-worthy”. The atmosphere is relaxing and the light that streams into the shop makes the plants that adorn the entire interior perky and happy to greet you.
