About your host, Botanical Boys
Ben and Daz of The Botanical Boys began their journey in 2009 when they took over a terraced garden in London Fields with a Japanese & formal English segments. Having no gardening experience prior, they really got stuck in and become members of the National Garden Scheme and opened up the space to the public for charity every year. They were selected for a spot on the BBC Great British Garden Revival program in May 2015 and were featured in a number of books and publications.
After a few assignments and holiday trips to South Africa and California it was succulents and their ability to be used in many structural forms, as with their sculpted Japanese and formal topiary English garden that led to a passion for creating designs on a smaller scale using air plants, cacti, succulents and a range of mosses creating beautiful terrariums.
Their love for plants and terrariums is infectious and people who join them on their workshops not only make a beautiful terrarium, but are taught about all the natural elements involved as well as provided aftercare instruction.
We provide all equipment including plants, glass vase, gift bag, tools, instructions and drinks! We are located at 28 Victory Parade, London, E15 2ER. Nearest train station is Stratford International. It is super quick and easy to take the fast train from Kings Cross, it takes less than 6 minutes. Come out of the station and walk across the road towards East Village. We are just 10minutes walk from the station. This is by far the quickets route. A Uber taxi is also convenient if you ask them to drop you at Napa Close, East Village. The shop is just on the corner. If you are travelling from Stratford Overground, it takes a further 10 minutes to walk through the shopping centre to the rear exit or around the shopping centre which is longer. If you walk outside and around the back of the Shopping Centre from Stratford take the A112 and turn left onto Liberty Bridge Road (please use google maps). Allow up to 15-20 minutes walk from this option to reach the Pop Up store.
