How it came about….

We were in the depths of the library researching all things plants and the history of plants when we stumbled across some ancient sanscipt that has a very cool symbol for plants, we have used a part of that symbol in our fabulous logo. This sanscript was also used at the hanging gardens of Babylon, which is thought to be the first time that people used plants in an ornamental capacity. This was over 4,000 years ago and we think it’s about time we helped more people to enjoy their benefits today.


Firstly this is your chance to change! Let us at The Little Botanical teach you how to look after our simple to care for range of plants, all chosen as part of our range because they are long living and easy on our time! But if you still feel scared, head over to our Succulents page. Available in different sizes and varieties so you can mix and match too!

Of course! We can ship to any UK address. We use DPD Local who deliver to home and business addresses and always give a delivery slot.

Oh yes! It wouldn’t be a perfect gift without a little message. It’s especially important to pop a message in the box so the recipient knows who to thank!

This is a hard question to answer because every plant has a different life span. Many succulents will last for months and months! Our Orchids should fill your home with flowers for many weeks and the green plants, as long as they get the care they need, will also happily continue removing toxins from the air you breath for months to come. But it really is over to you to give your plants a little water and follow our simple to do care instructions and you really will get the most from your new plant.
