One of my favorite Portland plant people is opening his own shop and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you. My friend Nanthawat (Nat) is an extremely generous human, as well as an incredibly knowledgeable—yet also very humble—plant person. I am so excited for the rest of Portland to get to know him through his new shop The Other Side Nursery...Nat invited me to check out the new digs prior to opening day, so I have a few photos to share with you. I also talked him into answering a few questions, because I think the story behind a venture such as this is rather fascinating, I hope you agree.
Something else worth pointing out, every shelf has light above it. These plants are happy and healthy, no dark recesses filled with etiolated succulents like you see at the big box stores.
