When Kate Sice began to daydream about opening another flower shop, her vision was to supply Hobart with stylish, simple flowers, beautifully presented with a classic edge.
Kate has over 25 years experience in the flower industry, owning and operating flower shops in Western Australia and Tasmania within this time. After a few years working in hospitality & event co ordination her passion for flowers and all things botanical could no longer be hidden.
Botanical’s seed was firmly planted in 2014 when the shop front Kate had longed for became available. Within a space of three days, the little rundown shop, with the most gorgeous pressed tin ceiling, was hers. After four weeks of thoughtful and dedicated restoration, 139 Macquarie Street is now the home of Botanical – a quirky flower studio in Hobart’s historical CBD. Botanical encompasses all things botanical and beautiful; a place to create and discover.
In four short years a much needed second store (HQ) was born. The beautiful white corner shopfront (also with a gorgeous pressed tin ceiling) at 187 Warwick Street, West Hobart is now home to a large working studio and Botanical’s gift store where you will find suitable gifts for all ages and a forest of indoor plants, orchids and pots.
There are two beautiful eclectic and mesmerising Botanical stores to evoke your senses and delight your soul.
“I’ve always wanted to find a place that I can share, a creative space that is forever evolving. I longed for a shop that people “need” to stop by, even just for a look or an intoxication of perfume. I am passionate about creating simplicity in an already beautiful medium. Flowers are the wonders in this industry and I feel my job is to share them with you”
