Horticulturist by nature, Brooklyn Plant Studio owner Tara Douglass is a floral and garden designer based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Detroit. A botanical enthusiast by way of Missouri, Tara first fell in love with plants as a child in 4-H. When she showed African violets at her local county fair and went on to win “Best in Show” at the Missouri State Fair, her future in gardening was sealed. Tara followed her passion for plants to the horticulture department at Battery Park City Parks Conservancy where she worked for six years. She has studied horticulture and botany at The New York Botanical Garden’s School, and is an ISA Certified Arborist. After a year buying plants for home and garden store Terrain, Tara set off on her own to open Brooklyn Plant Studio.

With sustainability and organic practices in mind, Tara’s approach to garden design is collaborative. Each project is unique, based on the individual client’s interests, needs, and space. Her floral design is inspired by a love of nature, beauty and simplicity, and her aim is always to help her clients weave florals into a lovely and memorable event. When she isn’t digging in her own backyard, traveling to gardens near and far, or talking horticulture with fellow plant geeks, Tara loves biking and taking pictures with real film. She lives in Williamsburg with her husband and two long-haired dachshunds, Biscuit and Basil.
