These Are the Best Stores for Plants and Flowers in London
From small succulents to massive monsteras, here’s where to buy plants in the British capital.
In a massive city like London, it can be hard to maintain a green thumb. Lack of space often means you don’t have access to plants, and when you’re sharing a flat with multiple people, it is also hard to make space for plants and big pots, which is why we’ve put together a guide to four places in London where you can get your plant fix.
Whether you’re looking to invest in a few small succulents for decoration, or if you’re ready to commit to a massive monstera or a tall cactus, we’ve compiled some of London’s best plant stores below. Take a look at our four favorites, and get ready to go green this weekend.
