The Fernseed is a modern plant shop and floral studio with two storefront locations in Tacoma. Owner Katherine Raz launched the shop in 2018 as an online store that sold unique handmade designs for potting and displaying houseplants, and opened the first brick-and-mortar location in April, 2019.
The shop was forced to close for nearly three months during the COVID-19 pandemic, during which the staff launched nationwide shipping, local delivery, and several new products offerings, including plant grams and plant-along-at-home kits.
In September, 2020, Fernseed opened a second storefront location on Tacoma’s historic South Tacoma Way. The shop now offers a floral stem bar and floral arrangements for grab-and-go pickup, and local delivery, 60% of which are sourced from small flower farms in Washington, Idaho, California, Oregon, and British Columbia.
