There’s a paradise for plant lovers tucked away in the streets of Istanbul. Run by Fem Güçlütürk, Labofem is the city’s premier center for plants, pots, and everything needed for an indoor paradise. Fem has been working on the shop for years, and spends every waking moment tending to her stock as well as her personal collection of leafy shrubs, mysterious cacti, and awe-inspiring rarities. She works adeptly, counseling both her customers and her plants: “We all talk too much sometimes; but to learn how to listen is the main issue,“ she says. “To understand plants’ needs you have to learn their language, to read the signs without talking in words, but in smell, color, and shape”.

Fem Güçlütürk and her shop are just one example of the many places, people, and things featured in our book Evergreen. Released in 2016, the book chronicles the perks of a life lived with plants, as well as practical tips on how to start a personal indoor garden. Browse and buy the book in our webshop
