Not to say plants are trending — but if the pot fits. In the past few years, the popularity of plants, specifically houseplants, has risen and continues to maintain their popularity. So while you may not be looking for outdoor plants at the moment, Franz Witte Garden Center in Nampa has plants and home goods to get you through the winter season with a little refresh of decor!

If you've been to Franz Witte's newest location, you may know that half of the nursery is outside, but luckily the other half is in a warm greenhouse! Making it a comfortable experience for you on your journey to find your perfect house pet plant.

The Perfect Weekend Hangout at Franz Witte Garden Center

Franz Witte Garden Center embodies more than just a nursery; they have really become a destination spot to hang out and shop. On Saturdays, Franz Witte kicks off the weekend by opening its coffee stand and a pop-up food truck. Grab a warm cup of coffee, browse the home decor, and grab yourself a new house plant for the perfect warm winter weekend activity.

In addition to starting your weekend off right at Franz Witte, they also offer frequent workshops — seasonal succulents, hanging greens basket, and holiday gnomes to name a few. These are a great way to gather with friends or family and get out of the house during the chilly winter months. Who knows, you might pick up a new skill!

Did you know there are quite a few benefits of having house plants? The holidays can be crazy and we often spend quite a bit of time indoors during the winter. House plants are a great way to not only freshen up the look of your house but can also provide benefits.

Benefits of Houseplants

  • Mental health
