In 1971, Botanicus opened its doors as the Plant Parlour on Main Street in Buffalo. The first plants-only retail store in Western New York, we sold bonsai, grafted cactus, succulents and small plants.
By 1974, the company boasted three retail stores, a glass greenhouse in Lockport, New York, and a 28 acre nursery in Bonita Springs, Florida. In the mid-1970’s, Botanicus began offering commercial plant services to businesses in the Buffalo market, expanding into Rochester in the early 80's. By 1986, operations were consolidated in order to concentrate exclusively on business customers..
