Le Petit Garden is a Do-It-Yourself gardening studio on Melrose Avenue and go on-location, too!
Every guest makes their own potting mix and leaves with a boxed, potted plant!
Our potting workshop is hands-on, fun and educational. We guide you step-by-step, explaining the different 'ingredients' in your soil 'recipe'.
Here are your options:
$15/person - "Petit" succulent
Pot an adorable 2" succulent in a "Petit" pot - perfect for parties with guests in attendance from near or a far. At our Succulent Bar guests mix their own potting soil (in a cocktail shaker!) and pot a small 2" succulent in a small ceramic pot. We box it up in a small kraft box with handle.
$20/person - air-purifying plant
Pot a Pothos plant - a highly rated, air purifying houseplant. The Pothos plant thrives in indirect light, so no matter what kind of natural light your guest's home or office receives, they can still enjoy a lush foliage plant. Workshop includes the planter (available in a variety of styles and colors), 1x 4" Pothos (your guests will choose from several varieties, like Snow Queen, Jade, Neon, and Satin), and an educational, step-by-step gardening session making our 'la Forêt' ("the forest") potting mix to replicate the Pothos' native habitat!
$25/person - succulent garden
Pot a succulent garden in a beautiful low bowl. Workshop includes low bowl, 3x 2" succulents (your guests will choose from many varieties), and an educational, step-by-step gardening session making our 'le Désert' ("the desert") potting mix to replicate the succulent's native habitat.
The Le Petit Garden experience is the perfect activity for a housewarming event, bridal shower, wedding, baby shower, corporate event, or birthday party!
Add a soil topping like small stone, colored moss, or decorative sand for $3-$6/person. Add accessories like Disney characters ($4-$7 each) or butterflies ($2.50 each) for children's parties!
We sincerely hope to garden with your group! Our on-location fee is $200 or book our studio for your event for the same price.
If our workshop isn't what you're looking for currently, we still encourage you to come in & garden! Walk-ins are welcome. We only require reservations for groups of 8 or more. We're open Sunday through Friday, 11 a.m. - 7 p.m. (closed Saturdays). Follow us on Instagram for upcoming workshops and promotions @lepetitgarden.co
Thank you for considering Le Petit Garden for your upcoming event!
This place is 5/5 is all aspects! I love the concept of this store. They have a beautiful selection of plants AND an excellent selection of really nice pots. They are setup so you pick a plant, pick the pot, and then repot it in a nice repotting area in the middle of the store. Such a good idea! When we arrived the employees were very friendly and helpful in our answering questions. The prices were very good as well. All of the plants looked perfectly healthy and happy and there was a nice variety to choose from. If you like indoor greenery hurry up and check this place out! More...
Such a cute little place! Perfect for organizing intimate events or just dropping by to learn about plants. I had my baby shower here and all my guests loved both the space and the experience! They called it unique and unlike any other shower they have been to. Huge variety of plants and pots, which is exciting. The staff is super helpful. Highly recommend! More...
Great experience for children and adults. Great help from the staff there as well.
This place is so cute and I can see how it can be a great place for private events too. They also have a kids table.I'm very happy with my pot and plant. I chose the money tree plant but they have a wide selection of different types (pythos, pinks, peace lilies, etc.). There is free parking on side street. They close at 7 pm, not 5 pm like is says on Yelp! More...
This place is really cool. Fun date event if you come here for the potting class as well. Elijah was super knowledgeable and helpful about plants and they're very meticulous about plants. There's specific soil mixes for whatever type of plants you pick. The prices actually include the pot, the plant, and the potting toppers. Super reasonable - my gf and i were wondering how they made money lol. More...
Bought a Groupon for two and had a fantastic time. So you pick a pot. Under the pot there is a price and that price includes a plant, soil, nutrients, and topper for a little extra. Elijah was so helpful, he understood the plants and explained how to keep them alive and was very patient while I spent 20 minutes looking for the perfect pot. (I am very indecisive...lol)All in all, it took about 40 mins (a lot less if you aren't indecisive) and the outcome was beautiful!!I would come here without a Groupon, the prices were surprisingly not too expensive considering that the shop is in the middle of Melrose St. They have free parking in the back, they said repotting the same plant is free in the future, and did I mention how awesome Elijah and Andrew are? More...
Buying this for my friends birthday was the perfect opportunity to do an activity not revolving a hangover. We had the best time (we all love plants) but also Elijah had a lot of knowledge about all the plants and soils. I work in the hospitality industry and will definitely be recommending this as a fun activity for my clients to participate in! More...
I dont know what resume to send them that is my problem
I always passed this place every time I would go to Melrose and thought it was super cute. Yesterday I went in and the two workers had a great attitude and were so helpful. I was excited to get my first plant and the woman helping me was so informative as to how to care for my plant with water and how it needs indirect sunlight. If you are looking to get a plant I suggest you come here. There are a variety of plants to chose from, pots, and decorations. You really can personalize it as to how you want. More...
I had a wonderful time at Le Petit Garden!! Its perfect for any date/special celebration, and great for those who are looking for personalized gifts/DIY workshops. First: you get to pick a pot/vessel and the price comes with a plant (petit or regular size). Then you get to select a plant for your pot. After, staff will walk you through the type of soil mixture you need depending on the type of plant. When you're done you will be given watering instructions and also have the option of adding in decorations and other soil toppers.My friend and I were walk-ins and were greeted by one of the staff members. He was super nice and knowledgeable about the plants. He not only asked us about the lighting in our apartments in order to help us narrow down our choices, but also explained about the different types and purpose of the dirt/rocks you add into your pot. There were a wide variety of cute pots as well as a couple of plant/wall backdrops for good pictures!!It was a little busy on a Sunday but the attention of staff/overall workshop duration were great! Street parking was fine in the neighbors behind Melrose. I would definitely come back with friends and family for a special hands-on experience! More...
came in on valentine's day with my mom while we were spending the day in LA. I unfortunately forget the name of the girls who were in there helping us at the time but they were fantastic! the overall process is very simple and easy for any age (besides the tough decision of picking the plant and pot you want) took me about 30 minutes to decide on what i wanted and they were so understanding and patient with us! they also helped with the many questions about which plants to get since my mom lives back on the east coast! thank you so much for the fun and interactive experience! i'll definitely be back! More...
I love the idea of this shop. You get to choose and build your own plant, which makes it extra special and personal. I wanted to do something different with my friend for her birthday, so instead of getting flowers I decided to take her here to build her own. And I'm so glad we did. Our experience was memorable thanks to Jay. He was so informative, kind, and patient with beginners like ourselves. Fun and easy activity to do with friends and kids (they have a small childrens section) and will definitely be coming back! More...
My sister and I went to Le Petit Garden yesterday and each did 2 plants. Jessica helped us, and the whole experience was amazing. Will definitely be back for more fun! More...
My sister and I took their planting workshop and had the best time. In the workshop, we got to pick our pot and plant, make our own potting soil, and repot your plant. They have the cutest assortment of pots to pick from, all in different price ranges. I had such a hard time choosing the one. They have large array of plants to choose from too. There were plants I hadn't ever seen before. We both picked jungle plants, ones that were not easy to kill.Jay, our instructor, was very kind and patient. We told him our plight about not being able to keep plants alive and he told us which plant option was best for us and which to stay away from. He was very knowledgeable about what soil was required for our jungle plants and showed us step-by-step what was required to care for our plant. After repotting our plants, we got to pick toppers to go over the soil. The topper gave our plants the finishing touch. The studio atmosphere was very serene. Plants covered the walls from floor to ceiling. The colorful pots lined the shelves. I walked into the workshop and immediately wanted to take photos. This was definitely a great place to hang out on a lazy Sunday.After we finished, I wanted to make a second plant, but decided I'd have to come back another day. I definitely will come back to make additional plants or maybe host a fun gathering with some friends. I definitely learned a lot and had a ton of fun. More...
What a great concept! I never write reviews but I'm writing because I have been so blown away! I purchased a plant back in November and it recently died. The staff happily replaced my plant and are some of the friendliest people I've ever met. They take time to explain the various plants to you and the process of properly planting in a pot. There are a lot of places to get plants/pots in LA but no where offers close to the amazing customer service they offer here. Highly recommend if you are interested in learning more about botany. More...
This place is AMAZING!!! Jessica and Jalen had such great attitudes and were incredibly knowledgeable. I loved the personal touch and the prices are affordable too! Thank you for such a great experience. I'll be back! More...
What a wonderful experience and great idea. Love the whole concept of this.
Totally loved this place! Brought my friend here for her birthday and we both loved it! They have a great selection of pots and plants and even have little cute plant toppers. All the employees were really sweet and had a bunch of information and knowledge behind the plants. The prices were reasonable and there was even a section for kids as well to do their own planting which was super cute. Would totally do this again and would recommend it to anyone. More...
Great staff, beautiful plants and a charming way to add live to my house. It was so fun to plant my new money tree plant.
I had such a lovely experience getting my peace lily and succulent. The staff is so kind and incredible.
Beautiful plants. I had a great time planting my birthday gift.
Such a great idea! Came in here and was able to create the succulent of my dreams. You get to pick your own pot, plant, and pot toppings. Really reasonable pricing too! I would definitely recommend for a date night, or even just a Sunday Funday for the kids. More...
I went here today to make a potted plant to commemorate my grandma's life, and Jessica was so helpful! I have never really planted anything before and she was super patient with me and answered all of my questions. I definitely recommend this place! It was super cute and very fun! More...
Love this place! I got a succulent in Aug in such a tiny pot and now it's growing so big I had to move it to a bigger pot. It's so healthy and beautiful. I definitely recommend to go and get one or give as a gift. I think I will need to buy another bigger pot! My succulent stays outdoors it has rained on it and it gets direct sun. I do live near the ocean so the morning mist and night fog is something my plants love. More...
This place is great! They have a ton of different plants and pots to choose from at very reasonable prices. I also love that we get to plant them ourselves, I recently went and Maria was super helpful and nice. Definitely coming back!
Great, fun, unique experience for people looking for something a little more involved than just going for coffee/drinks. Knowledgeable staff, straightforward instructions, nice variety of pots, plants, and accessories to choose from. The whole thing took about 30 minutes. I'd definitely recommend and go again. More...
My son loved to make his own plant! And everyone was very helpful and friendly !!!!
This place is great! You pick a pot that you like, and the price on the pot is the total cost for everything w/ the plant. You mix the soil yourself and pot your own plant from a wide selection of plants. They have great pot styles. I think it would be a cool place to bring kids, too. More...
What a super cute spot! I was looking to go on a date somewhere different, not your ordinary cooking classes, building your own bear, painting on chinaware, dinners, coffee, movies... you get the point...but potting your favorite plant? Awesomeness! I would also recommend for children as well! Affordable prices! Super friendly staff! what more do you want? :) More...
Best plant ever , great friendly staff, and thank you so much . A+ & 5 Stars
