Plant hunting


One of our favourite things is heading out to the nurseries to hunt for the gorgeous plants to put on our online sill each month. The air in the greenhouses is some of the freshest going around and it's always exciting to discover what's looking lush on the day. You just never know what exciting new plant is hidden at the back of the greenhouse, even if it isn't for sale.
On our latest trip we took photographer extraordinaire and absolute legend Luisa Brimble with us to document the journey and give you guys a bit of a behind the scenes look at where the magic happens!
Our amazing growers are such fountains of plant knowledge and we love soaking up whatever info they're willing to share. From tips about plant care to plant identification, there's always something to be learned that we can then pass on to you guys. Being the voyeurs that we are, we managed a peak in the home of one of the orchid growers to spy on his own indoor jungle and were definitely not disappointed. 
Hope you leaf lovers enjoy!

    It was pretty chilly that day. No puffer jackets needed up in your neck of the woods!
