Jason and Nathan created The Plant Society as a way to nurture a love of plants, design and community. Their ethos is simple: celebrate plants and all things green, and in turn establish a knowledge bank of skills and techniques. From now until Christmas, you'll be able to visit their pop-up in our South Yarra store, and purchase one of their beautiful plants for yourself. Here we chat to the creative couple about the collaboration, and they impart some of their wisdom when it comes to caring for indoor plants.

Why collaborate with Country Road?
"Our collaboration with Country Road has been driven by our combined passion for design and natural simplicity. Having grown up with fond memories wearing and breathing Country Road, we’re excited to develop a strong relationship with an esteemed Australian brand."
Why plants? What is it about them that inspired The Plant Society?
"Plants have always been a staple in my life. I would find myself lost in hours of gardening and this continues to be a large part of my life. Not only is the act of gardening therapeutic but plants can instantly bring life to any cold interior. As an architect and interior designer I naturally swayed towards styling with plants to soften some of the harder edges in homes. Nathan and I launched The Plant Society to embrace community and pass on what we knew about indoor greenery. We wanted to let everyone know it wasn’t that difficult to create an indoor urban oasis."
