Newly-weds Nicolette and Karl Brown are also proud plant parents, and they want to spread the joy of love and growth for this upcoming Valentine’s Day.
The business, Khalil’s Plant Salon, came about after starting their own love garden at home. Realizing that their journey ever after stemmed from both nature and nurture, the duo decided to merge the two into a holistic venture. “My husband has always been a plant lover. Our home is like a garden. He has a green thumb. We have a vegetable garden and a flower garden,” Nicolette told Saturday Living.
Since launching the business a month ago, the reverends have participated in two trade shows, to the delight of customers who are amazed by their natural creativity. Moving from the traditional look, the duo is intent on making conversation pieces. You will find motifs of butterflies and bugs, to bring customers back to nature. These plants, predominantly succulents, and cactuses, also come in a wide variety when it comes to presentations: there are teapots, teacups, and saucers as well as the conventional pots, which add value to any setting and accessorize your spaces including kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, anywhere with a countertop.
“For Valentine’s Day, we’re more focusing on cactus and succulents because they are low maintenance, so if you’re going to give it to someone who isn’t a plant person, it doesn’t take much to look after. There are other potted plants, like ferns, the agglomeration plant, the zee zee plant, and many others, which are bigger, and for office spaces and homes, but we decided to zoom in on this concept for the season,” Karl added.
