About Us

Born in 2009, Nurturing Green is the pioneer in India to bring about and promote the concept of Green Gifting – “Gift a Plant”. The concept of gifting a plant was the adrenaline for this venture. The idea was to replace bouquets and other monotonous, traditional gifts with live plants.

Since its conception, Nurturing Green has not only captured the gifting arena, but has also changed the way people market their brand and take it to new levels with Green Marketing and Gifting.

The minds and hands behind Nurturing Green are a team of young, passionate professionals with an eye to detail and strong emphasis on quality to ensure that we offer you the latest products with the best quality. Our teams, who are gardening enthusiasts, ensure that every product that goes out matches world class quality standards.

Taking steady and constant steps into homes, offices and other spaces, Nurturing Green has been successful in making homes greener and soften spaces creating an environment of serenity. We fill the gap between nature and human beings and bring them closer through our Green Décor and Landscaping services.

Nurturing Green does not believe in only selling plants. We believe that every time you buy a plant, you take home a life and this new life needs to be nurtured for it to thrive. We help you nurture your plant with our after sales service and plant experts whenever you need us.

With 1 million customers, 30+ retail outlets in the top 10 cities of India and 500+ happy corporate clients, Nurturing Green has become the synonym of “Go Green” in India.

We at Nurturing Green have created a strong Buying and R&D team, which brings to you new, high quality products every season. Be it exotic Bonsai from Japan or Lucky Bamboo from Thailand & China, we have more than 300 products and bring to you the rarest of rare varieties of the exotic plants with unmatchable quality.

Our plants come in attractive pots and planters adding to the overall appeal of the plants and ensuring that you would love to add a piece in your décor. Be it fiber, jute or ceramic pots, we bring to you something new every season. Our handcrafted jute-pots increase the intrinsic ecological appeal and are a symbol of the humane aspect of our gifts as every plant you gift contributes to the welfare of the rural women working in small SHGs near Kolkata who make these pots.

Our constant endeavor at Nurturing Green is to bring to you the best variety and quality of products and we are very passionate about our plants. We won’t promise to be perfect always, but we do promise to make your experience the best. We promise to make every effort and do anything and everything to make your gifting, décor and landscaping experience a success. We encourage your feedback at every stage and will use it to our best to continue to serve you better every day.
