Interior Plant Styling


Let's face it, things are just dull and boring without the living energy of plants in our spaces. Not only do plants improve our air quality, but they are also mood and creativity boosters and add a sense of tranquility to our surroundings. The Potted Poppy can help you figure out just the right plant(s) and containers for your home, office, or work space. Whether you have a low, medium, or high lighted space, we can help beautify and energize your scene. We also offer maintenance services for those that want the greenery but don't have the time to care for the plants.

Plant Sitting


If I had a dollar for every person that said to me: "I went on vacation and had my friend come over to water my plants while I was away and it died"; I'd be on my own vacation right now! 

We love our friends, but sometimes it's best to let the plant professionals do the work. The Potted Poppy does plant sitting and garden sitting so you can go on vacation knowing that the 30 year old plant that was passed down to you by your dear great Auntie Judy will be happy, thriving and ready to welcome you home. We can also keep an eye on your small urban garden. Services include, watering, pruning and light weeding.

The Potted Poppy has been a great resource for our restaurant. Toni has a great eye and is wonderful to work with. I would recommend her business to anyone trying to improve the look and feel of their space.

Toni has been a joy to work with. Her floral expertise has brought life and an air of seclusion to our outdoor seating here at Tartine Bakery.
— Zach Taylor, Manager, Tartine Bakery
When Toni takes care of my plants while I am on vacation, I feel as though my plants are on vacation too! They get the best love and care possible and I don’t have to come home to dead plants anymore. They always look so clean, happy, and healthy when returning home! I am incredibly thankful for Toni’s time, knowledge, and incredible attention to detail.
