Next month, a plant-obsessed garden designer named Hank Jenkins is opening a unique plant life shop in Silver Lake, right across from Clare Vivier's boutique. Cleverly named The Plant Provocateur, the space will be located at 3318 West Sunset Boulevard and will host cool plants, cut flowers and design products for those enthused by beautiful botany.
To give locals a taste of what to expect at his shop, Jenkins is hosting a Valentine's Day pop-up at today through tomorrow from 12 to 6pm. He tells us that the event will hook-up pre-made bouquets, plus organic sweets by local chocolatier Confectionally Yours. Cute, last-minute idea for V-day procrastinators.
