Brown Thumb or Green Thumb, Rewild Has the Plant for You

Whether you have a green thumb or not, Rewild Shaw (1924 8th Street NW Suite #100) can help make your home or office a greener place with their selection of houseplants, pots, planters and experts to guide you through their care. 

According to Joseph Ressler, a managing partner at Rewild, the plant and flower studio’s inventory is primarily sourced from family nurseries in the southeastern United States. Their collection features many unusual houseplants not commonly found in larger stores like Home Depot. 

In addition to selling plants, the store’s experts are also able to diagnose plants that are having problems, and with any purchase in the store, they will repot plants for free. Additionally, for a fee, Rewild offers delivery and repotting services in the home, as well as consultation services to design, install and maintain plants in both residential and commercial spaces. 

Rewild has also partnered with local businesses to conduct workshops. Ressler believes that community is at the heart of Rewild. 

“We love Shaw,” Ressler said. “It feels like we are very much ingrained in the community. We know our neighbors, we’re involved with Shaw Main Streets. It’s just a great area and we’re very happy to be a part of the community.” 

Rewild celebrated their fourth anniversary on October 21, 2022 and Ressler emphasized the importance of small businesses in the community. He said the shop will feature a variety of great promotions for Small Business Saturday in November. 

In addition to stores in Shaw and Northern Virginia, Rewild also began operating the U.S. Botanical Garden gift shop in April 2022. A portion of sales at that location go to the Friends of the U.S. Botanic Garden, which presents community education programs and events. In addition to selling plants in the gift shop, they also sell artwork from DC artists. 

Rewild Shaw is open Monday through Friday. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The shop’s entrance is on 9th Street, despite the 8th Street address. You can also visit their Northern Virginia location in Ballston (700 N Randolph Street #190) and the United States Botanic Garden Gift Shop (100 Maryland Avenue SW).
