can I just browse anonymously and check out the quality?

Sure, with pleasure, just book in and give a false name – with a mask as well we won’t have a clue who you are! But…it’s probably worth noting there aren’t many things you can pick up and walk out with – we’re not really a shop in that sense.

We do of course have a great selection of everything we sell on display, interior and exterior plants and trees, flower arrangements, living walls etc. Our workshop elves make up the final versions once we’ve discussed what you like. Everybody has different preferences and different spaces to fit – so it’s the simplest way to make sure you get exactly what you want. Our stuff lasts a long time, so it might as well be right!

If you’re after something small for Aunt Ethel [and you’ve decided against a bottle of Bailey’s, which she’d probably prefer] then in all honesty we aren’t your people. There are lots of places that can help you with that, household stores that can also sell you bedside lamps and so on. They’ll normally have a small fake plant section with ready-potted items. Names that spring to mind are Wayfair, Oka, Neptune, Ikea, TK Maxx – and no doubt many others can help. There’s also online if you’re more of a gambler, but look closely at the pictures – and do make sure they have a good returns policy. The pictures might look OK, but there are some real horrors out there!
