TEN PLANT COMMANDMENTS....
The hard to come by Monstera Obliqua is now available in limited numbers. Fast becoming the new IT PLANT, the Monstera Obliqua cuts a striking image with it's interesting oval-shaped holes. You can grow the Monstera Obliqua as a hanging plant (my fave!) or train it to grow up a moss pole. Grows in similar conditions to its cousin, the Monstera Deliciosa, and will reward you with fast growing foliage.
Available in our online shop here.
GREENERY! Oh yes! We're finally legit!
Bit late to this one but this is what I'm currently packing orders to...
Today, we're taking an in-depth look at the mini version of the plant du jour - the Ficus Lyrata / Fiddle Leaf Fig.
The Dwarf Fiddle Leaf Fig tops out at a height of 50cm compared to its full size counterpart which can reach nearly 15 metres outdoors!
Figgy Smalls is ideal for space conscious plant lovers who love the Fiddle's iconic foliage and shape but lack the room for a taller specimen.
Care is easy for this baby, regular watering and a nice, bright spot in your home. You'll be rewarded with lots of glossy new foliage.
The Ficus Lyrata Bambino / Dwarf Fiddle Leaf Fig / Figgy Smalls is available to buy in limited quantities from our shop!
I'm fortunate enough to know many talented people in London, one of whom being my mate Von Leadfoot. VLF is a traditional signwriter from the USA living and working in London. He kindly painted me this sign for my studio. I haven't stopped looking at it since I took delivery, the attention to detail is incredible. The pride that Von Leadfoot puts into is work is just astounding.
I have big plans for this wee sign, it shall hang in my brick and mortar store....watch this space!

It was a bit of a trial getting them, many negotiations with growers and suppliers across Europe but they've landed and I couldn't be happier.
