Cacti and succulents at Freshtopia SL Nugegoda outlet

Six months have passed since Freshtopia SL, an online store for cacti and succulents, opened a sales outlet (52/1, Kandawatta Road, Nugegoda) in Nugegoda, a suburb of Colombo.

Freshtopia SL, under the motto “Urban agriculture for a sustainable future,” was launched in 2018 as a project to encourage people to grow their own vegetables even in limited spaces to enhance their food security and safety. While working with Leo Club of Colombo Knights and Leo District 306C2, Colombo-based non-profit organizations, to promote the cultivation of vegetables without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, the company has been marketing cactus and succulent plants online.

In addition to the products sold online, the Nugegoda outlet offers ornamental plants and vegetable seedlings such as cabbages, tomatoes, eggplants, and chili peppers. Vegetable seedlings are available individually and in sets of 14 plants of 7 varieties (1,000 rupees). Terrariums with air plants and cacti in pots with hand-painted designs are also available. The shop also offers custom-made cactus arrangements.

Currently, the company advertises its products on its Facebook page and accepts orders by phone or WhatsApp. It also offers free delivery for purchases over a certain amount in the suburbs of Nugegoda.

Opening hours: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Closed on Sundays and Mondays.
