to meet you.
to meet you.
You move out of home and into a tiny one-bedroom apartment in the city. Despite always thinking gardening and keeping plants was for grown-ups, you buy your very first plant.
A few weeks later, you *accidentally* come home with another plant. Then another, aaaaaand another. Oops.
You're addicted. You can't admit this, but your friends and family on Instagram can see you've gone completely plant-crazy. You can't go a single weekend without picking up a plant at the nursery, farmers market or Bunnings.
And it's no longer just the plants, but the pots too. Tall ones, short ones, ceramic, concrete, ones for the table, ones that hang - and then you start propagating plants yourself, so you can grow your collection even BIGGER.
This is where Cooper&Smith began, an accidental plant passion project of newlyweds Liam Cooper and Amy Smith.
You, among 10 million others, probably saw them get engaged on YouTube.
Meet Liam & Amy
Moving to Sydney 3 years ago, we lost the outdoor space and large living areas inside our home that we had taken for granted in the beach-side city of Wollongong, NSW.
We quickly learnt that Sydney apartment living leaves little space for bulky pots and large planters - especially in our tiny one-bedroom unit. And most of the indoor living collections at the hardware store look like they're straight out of old nana's living room.
So after trawling the world-wide-web, we’ve curated the ultimate collection of propagation stations, plant pots and accessories that are perfect for city apartment living where space is tight and greenery is scarce.
Stop showing off your plant babies in bland hardware store pots and propagating cuttings in old pasta jars. Splurge a little and pick up one of our vibin’ propagation stations or industrial planters.
And when you do, make sure you show your friends and family just how plant-crazy you’ve gone. But don’t worry, you’re definitely not alone.
Our favourite moments
We have so much fun building our plant collection, finding beautiful new products and travelling the world discovering plants in other cultures and environments. Read on as we share some of our favourite Cooper&Smith moments.
