Welcome To
The Urban Planter

The Urban Planter is a unique and trendy gift shop in downtown Spartanburg. You could say that plants are kind of our thing, but they are far from our only thing! We love plants of all kinds but we prefer the rooted varieties which create arrangements that will last for years to come.

In our shop you will find individual plants, potted arrangements, terrariums, air plants and succulents. We also have a great selection of gifts, local art, greeting cards and home décor items. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for daily updates on happenings in the store! Our address is 147 E Main Street, Spartanburg, SC 29306. Please call us with any questions, 864-804-6256.

“Probably the cutest store in the whole city. So many plants to choose from, and I love mixing and matching my plants to my planters! I’ve never had a problem with a plant not surviving or thriving, Love shopping here!!”

Our Services

House Plants
We have a large inventory of plants in house and if we do not have what you are looking for on the floor please inquire about placing a special order. Our plants come in a variety of sizes and are replenished every couple of weeks so check in often to see what is new!

Our vast inventory includes a great line of gift items from cards and candles to one of a kind items created by local artisans.
Custom Arrangements
From the soil to the accent pieces, we have everything you need to create the perfect arrangement. We are happy to provide as much or as little assistance as needed. We can create a piece for you, assist you with designing your own, or you can pick up one of our premade arrangements. Do you already have a container? Bring it in and we will bring it to life! Need that container delivered?! Yes, we do that too!
Terrariums & Fairy Gardens
Terrariums are enclosed pieces of glass that contain plants and soil. Terrariums are a popular choice among many plant lovers and gardeners because they are very low maintenance. Terrariums come in many shapes and sizes and can be open or closed. We have glass pieces of all shapes and sizes to choose from in the shop. Terrariums can easily be made into a fairy garden by adding some miniatures to the landscape!
