Hopeless Botanics

Hopeless Botanics are hopelessly obsessed with houseplants! They deliver beautiful houseplants direct to your door – everything from an 8-foot palm to small gift sets and table top plants for desks and shelves.

Their studio upstairs in Two Pups Cafe on Francis Street is now also open to the public, Fridays – Sundays 10am -4pm.  Pop in and visit this little oasis in the city, stocked with houseplants, books, pots, and re-potting supplies.

Set up in the summer of 2020, Hopeless Botanics started as a pop up shop at the Fumbally Stables, and then at Two Pups Café, and then with Jill & Gill on Stephen’s Green. Check them out on Instagram for plant care chats, botanical eye candy and for behind the scenes at their installations on TV shows like ‘Room to Improve’ and living walls in retail shops like Brown Thomas Dublin.

“We only select and deliver plants that we ourselves would merrily carry home from a shop, and we take great pride in our customer service as well.  We use recycled materials for our packaging as much as possible, and reuse or recycle the packaging that we receive. We get all our printed materials done in Dublin, and are passionate about supporting the great Irish businesses around us. We take all of our own photos, and love when we get some time to be a bit creative. We have a hard working, passionate, DIY approach at heart.”
