With planting season underway, there’s never been a better time to (re)discover Dig It Gardens, the 22,000-square-foot Phoenix plant shop known as much for its desert-friendly botanicals as its vibrant community presence.

Owned by husband-and-wife team Ryan and Jessica Jerrell, Dig It Gardens and its sister company, Dig It Design, fuse art, music, plants and landscape design into one thriving enterprise.

Drop by to browse the succulents, cacti, indoor plants and other desert-friendly flora on offer, as well as the seasonal vegetables and herbs available for pick-up. Or pop in to soak up some aesthetic inspiration. There’s a mural on the side of the building that honors the local neighborhood. Inside, the bathroom’s living wall is worth a peek.

And while you browse the inventory, check out the underpinnings of the plant display. Initially designed by ASU landscape architecture students as a seating structure that mimics the topography of Papago Park, it has been repurposed by the Jerrells as a functional plant stand.
