I had a very enjoyable afternoon attending a Terrarium masterclass hosted by Michael and learned many interesting things about the history of Terrariums and how to prepare them. It was a fun team event with other people and I won the prize in the quizz too! A great present that also gave me something to enjoy for lots of time time to come. Highly recommended if you have green fingers and like this sort of thing.

A fun and informative class and I took home a beautiful terrarium that I hope will live gloriously for a long time. Thank you! 🌱
Ester - Jun 12, 2022
Lovely time! Highly recommended. It started with some terranium introduction while we enjoyed a glass of prosseco and after few recommendations we start building our own creation.

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…

Tim Brogden - Jun 1, 2022
I had such a fantastic afternoon with Michael and Fifi at the Terrarium Masterclass, a lot of fun and a very enjoyable, relaxing activity creating my very own terrarium, which is still looking great a couple of weeks later. I'd recommend this to anyone. It was good to get some history and science too. This was given to me as a birthday gift, an ideal present for me. I visited the shop recently too and met Solomon who was lovely and very helpful. All in all a great experience, lovely staff and a lot of fun. Thanks very much.
Alison Saunders - May 30, 2022
The course was great, we learnt so much about how to make and care for our own terrarium and Cameron made sure we all got the help we needed. I can’t wait to try making another one and I know that I can rely on the Botanical Boys for advice with caring for my terrarium.
Melanie - May 16, 2022
Great workshop - relaxed, fun and informative, with a good balance between information-giving, practical terrarium-making and time to drink prosecco and chat with others in the group. I enjoyed the experience, and was very pleased with the terrarium I created. Highly recommended!
Lucy - May 16, 2022
I don't know what I was expecting but it exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere in the space we were sat in was really nice and the presentation was lovely. Cameron 'the moss man' gave an insightful history lesson and we got to create these treasures that we can hold onto for years to come. The terrariums we made were ones I would want to buy, so being able to hand make them ourselves is something really special.
Sophie Noble - May 9, 2022
A lovely relaxing afternoon spent learning about terrariums and then creating your own terrarium. It was really enjoyable and I would highly recommend the class.
Rita - May 2, 2022
Brilliant! The team was informative and helpful, the venue Samsung KX is a gem! Overall experience is positive, definitely worth a try :)
Isabella Tarizzo - May 1, 2022
Really engaging session!
Sue Wall - May 1, 2022
Great fun, and much more informative than I had expected. Who knew there was so much history to terrariums? Good company, well-paced as an event, and a great sense of satisfaction by the end. Overall it was a very relaxing, fun afternoon, and it's easier to carry the terrarium home than you think....mine came all the way home to Derbyshire by train, without any of the plants moving a millimetre.
Linda - Apr 27, 2022
Loved making a terrarium. Cameron was a great host and tutor, with a good balance of background knowledge and instruction. We were delighted with our finished product. Highly recommended!
Harriet Knight - Apr 25, 2022
Loved this class! Thoroughly recommend!
Lizzie Lord - Apr 24, 2022

Amy Strode - Apr 24, 2022

Chris Dominy - Apr 23, 2022
Fantastic experience with my 9 year old son. Educational, well hosted, super interesting and wonderful to bring a beautiful home-made terrarium. Recommended!
Jessica - Apr 19, 2022
Thank you for a fun and educational workshop. We hope that our new terrarium will thrive, and with the care advice provided I'm sure it will go beautifully.
Tom - Apr 18, 2022
Really fun thing to do as a couple
Ruth - Apr 18, 2022
My daughter and I had such a fun afternoon creating our terrarium and it is doing really well in my sunny kitchen. Lovely selection of plants and great instruction.
Shan Phung - Apr 17, 2022
The host was amazing and had an admirable aura about him. The session was informative and inspiring hearing about the journey of Botanical Boys. We bought the couples ticket and it was really worth it - enjoyable and good fun for friends, family or as a date. We absolutely love our terrarium and cant wait to make more.
Rojina - Apr 17, 2022
Other peoples reviews of this experience led me to want to buy it. And it definately lived up to my expectations. I took my mum here because shes always wanted to learn how to create a terrarium. Now we have a beautiful one at one and know exactly how to do it again. Thankyou so much!
Tomas White - Apr 12, 2022
We had a great time at the class! Michael was a great host, showed us how to make a lovely terrarium and kept us laughing throughout
Isaac Verkaik - Apr 11, 2022
Really enjoyable evening. Brilliant facilitation from Michael, and some lovely company. The terrariums looks great too. Tempted to go again for more!
Eleni Aresti - Apr 11, 2022
A really fun and worth while experience. Highly recommend.
Dominic - Apr 11, 2022
The workshop was fantastic. Michael bought great energy, knowledge and guidance through the workshop. Would thoroughly recommend. The quality of products to use was first class, and the we were very happy with our terrarium.
Sai - Apr 10, 2022
Good workshop for beginners or for trying new things. Selected plants are easy to take care of with just some basic guides. Worth the money and a guaranteed gift to bring back home. I found it more enjoyable than expected, and I think it will become my new hobby. Totally got me into the terrarium!
Ana - Apr 9, 2022
Great instructions and a fun history lesson on terrarium origins, as well as a quiz at the end with prizes. Enjoy a glass of prosecco while opening up the various pre-measured packages of ingredients. The bonus plants weren't too pricy either!
Luca Bevilacqua - Apr 9, 2022
I loved every part of the workshop! And I love my new terrarium :)
Charlotte - Apr 4, 2022
Really interesting and fun class and very happy with the terrarium that my husband and I made. The instructor, Michael, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Would definitely recommend.
Rosalin Forster - Apr 4, 2022
Would recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a fun, creative and informative experience, with the added bonus of leaving with a beautiful terrarium. Cameron was fantastic and really helpful, and the prosecco was a nice touch! Overall this workshop exceeded our expectations, we were really impressed with the size and quality of the terrarium and plants provided and would love to do this again.
Lucy - Apr 4, 2022
Amazing class, learnt a lot and also have a lovely terrarium to take home! Very good value for money!
Michael Harvey - Apr 3, 2022
Amazing class! Cameron was a delight. My terrarium is a work of beauty and I’m very happy. Will return with friends and family.
Stephanie Pacak - Apr 2, 2022
Great afternoon!
Ifeoma Uzonwa - Apr 2, 2022
Fantastic and therapeutic time with the team at Botanical boys. I can’t believe how attached I am to my plants, peeking at them daily etc. Ideal for family or even group of friends. Highly recommended and can’t wait to take my girls there again
Cassandra Coulton - Mar 28, 2022
A really great afternoon! The class was a gift for my partner and he loved it. Cameron was extremely patient, knowledgable and helpful. Especially for such a large group. Definitely recommend!
Evie Elimelech - Mar 27, 2022
We had the best time making our terrariums! Thanks so much for the experience
Kim Parker - Mar 21, 2022
I bought the Couples course for my husband for Christmas and we had a wonderful day out in a gorgeous setting. The course was not only a lot of fun, but the quality of the plants and jars was great. Cameron kept it interesting, and informative and we have come away much wiser as a result! Would highly recommend!!
Sam Giddings - Mar 20, 2022
Fantastic course, little bit of history and straight into learning by doing! Guidance on what you need to do and advice but freedom to create your own mini world with a wide choice of healthy, happy plants.
James English - Mar 15, 2022
Excellent class, well led and worth the money!
Rebecca Munger - Mar 14, 2022
What a great experience! It was a perfect and unexpected blend of education, entertainment and making of the terrarium. :) Michael was the ideal host.
Vasilisa - Mar 14, 2022
Great masterclass! Both "boys" were super engaging and knowledgeable, led the masterclass well and helped the audience. We managed to upgrade to the eggs on the day which was a lot of fun too
Laura White - Mar 14, 2022
We had a fantastic time making our terrarium yesterday! Lovely and relaxed, and the facilitator was excellent - would definitely recommend!
Shirley Cubitt - Mar 13, 2022
I came across this class by accident a few weeks ago and thought what a great idea. I went straight home and booked the Terrarium Masterclass. It was a great way to spend 2 hours and really interesting. I really enjoyed getting my hands dirty and the end result looked great. The man running the class was really helpful, friendly and informative. I would definitely recommend this class and the Prosecco was a bonus!
Chloe Evans - Mar 13, 2022
Such a fun, interactive workshop. The workshop run by Cameron was brilliant! So happy with how my terrarium turned out and he helped everybody along the way. Couldn’t recommend enough!
Gamze - Mar 13, 2022
Nice ambiance ;)
Lauren Williams - Mar 13, 2022
The workshop was amazing, Cameron ( I think his name was) was super down to earth (pardon the pun) and made something a little bit nerdy come across as interesting and fun! We were plied with Prosecco throughout and shown how to properly make a terrarium and given the option to upgrade your plants (buy slightly bigger or different ones) aswell as having lots of options already included. I was bought the workshop as a gift and was a little worried because I like plants but I usually find learning really boring. But it was so fun, and now I have two beautiful terrariums in my flat (my partner came along too) and a little more knowledge which is always helpful. The guys teaching the class had a casual approach, were super engaging and really easy to get on with. I would 100% do it again or purchase it for someone else as a gift.
Irini Yanny - Mar 13, 2022
Fab class and loved the little history lesson at the beginning! Welcomed with bubbles and instructor was clear and approachable. Very pleased with my terrarium! Thankyou guys!
Erin - Mar 11, 2022
I had previously expressed disappointment in this class as all my plants died, but want to submit a new review as Botanical Boys reached out, took my terrarium back and happily replanted everything for me to ensure I was happy. They really seem to stand behind this class and the product they offer so I'm really pleased. Thanks Botanical Boys!
Oliver Nicholas - Mar 6, 2022
An incredible and wholesome experience. Brilliantly led by Cameron, who presented the history of terrariums very well, and then continued to give a very attentive session, providing support where needed. Great to walk away with something that will remind you of the experience for years to come. Highly recommend booking this.
Prath - Mar 3, 2022
This was a great class! As you walk in, the area in the back of the shop is set up to host about 10-12 people. Everything is pre-laid out for you (ie moss, soil, tools, aprons etc). You just have to listen and take instruction from Michael. Michael was a great teacher; funny, informative and very helpful! The time flew by and at the end of it you've got a lovely Terrarium with a box to take it home :) Would highly recommend this course!
Ekwy Nnene - Feb 28, 2022
Cameron created a fun, relaxed and stimulating experience for us. Thoroughly enjoyed getting my hands dirty, creating something beautiful and hanging out with my friends. Highly recommend!
Zoe Spittle - Feb 28, 2022
michael was great! really fun class, have recommended it already
Rubens Carvalho - Feb 28, 2022
The class was great. My wife and I had a lot of fun and we really enjoy our terrariums.
Ron - Feb 27, 2022
The class was good fun and we'll instructed by Cameron who was passionate and supportive to the lesson. The space used was also novel which lots of space around. The only constructive feedback would be that it would be good if they could include a larger plant in the price as opposed to just a selection of smaller ones
Max Charron - Feb 27, 2022
Excellent session run by Cameron. Interesting to cover some of the history and science and great fun to build the terrarium itself!
Rebecca Dawson - Feb 27, 2022
Very informative and great fun.
Megan Carter - Feb 27, 2022
Absolutely loved it... Not only was the experience absolutely fantastic, but the setting at Samsung was really fun! Cameron was a great host, learned a lot and ended up with a gorgeous new plant friend.... Will definitely be back! More terrariums! All the terrariums!
Lindsey Winkworth - Feb 23, 2022
Wonderful afternoon spent making a beautiful Terrarium, plenty of plants to choose from, engaging host Michael made us laugh out loud, the prosecco refills were the icing on the cake for what was a totally enjoyable 2 hours. My only advice would be to perhaps take a bag with you to bring your terrarium home as the paper bags provided don't look strong enough if going home by train.
RYAN UHL - Feb 21, 2022
Great class with some interesting history thrown in! Recommend for anyone who has green fingers.
Sophie Chakowa - Feb 21, 2022
Such a great class, Micheal was knowledgeable and friendly. Great value for money too with all the materials and clear guidance throughout.
Loretta Rice - Feb 21, 2022
We had a really fun time, the host Mike was really fun and made the session interactive with lots of jokes, quizzes and prizes. It was interesting too as he gave us a history of terrariums and care instructions. Really loved it!
mathilde cros - Feb 21, 2022
Amazing class, both interesting and relaxing with some amazing explanation and back story on terrarium, and a really nice set up. Would recommend 100%
Joe Payne - Feb 20, 2022
Really fun and interesting session with a great instructor who made it informative and exciting.
Alice - Feb 19, 2022
Cameron was fab - super knowledgable and made the class really fun throughout. Really enjoyed the fact there was a mixture of creating and a history lesson too. Step by step instructions ensured everyone left with a fab looking piece! Loved the mixture of free plants and optional upgrades to make it look better.
Paul Crowley - Feb 14, 2022
Partner bought this for me as a present. Was great fun, really interactive, well explained, good choice of jars and plants, and I learnt a lot about gardening generally. I found it a relaxed and welcoming environment. The only criticism is that my partner had upgraded me but the instructor was not aware of this. If my partner hadn't told me she'd upgraded me, I would not have known to flag this and would have been given the same sized jar and plants as others who had not been upgraded.
Anonymous - Feb 13, 2022
Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop - it was really fun and interesting. Great for couples!
Alex Stein - Feb 9, 2022
I bought the 2 hr workshop course for my wife as a birthday present and she absolutely loved it!
Dan Cobley - Feb 6, 2022
Great session. The venue (at Samsung) was perfect and Cameron did a brilliant job on the history and the practicalities of the terrarium. Highly recommended.
Joanne - Feb 5, 2022
Wonderful workshop - filled with useful info, how to care for your terrarium, the history of terrariums, and so much fun to create your own! I love my terrarium that I made with my own hands!
Anonymous - Jan 31, 2022
We had the best time at the workshop. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age, level, interest. It was a super relaxing and fun-filled afternoon. I can't stop staring at my beautiful terrarium. Thank you!
Tracy Rice - Jan 31, 2022
Great knowledge and hands on teaching
Karishma Chudasama - Jan 30, 2022
Unique and a very creative experience, playing with the mucky mud sure is an endorphin booster. Both our hosts were knowledgable and super helpful in helping us create a great, hopefully self sustaining, terrarium!
Ilana Garrard - Jan 30, 2022
Really fun day and the host, Michael, was hilarious.
Cameron Lester - Jan 23, 2022
Amazing!
Anonymous - Jan 23, 2022

Rosie - Jan 17, 2022
We had a great experience at Botanical Boys, excellent explanation, resources and environment! Many thanks to our teacher who helped us create gorgeous pieces of work :D
linda & James edwards - Jan 10, 2022
This was booked for a mother & son day, for his Christmas present. Fantastic class, very professionally done. Cameron who ran the class was brilliant!! so knowledgeable and delivered the class with humour. We came away with a beautiful terrarium, mother & son so chuffed. Highly recommended.
Louis - Jan 9, 2022
Brilliant afternoon, excellently led and the terrariums we build are wonderful
Lorraine Rudling - Dec 21, 2021
A brilliant way to spend a bleak afternoon in December. The tutor was very knowledgeable and I left with a beautiful terrarium I had made myself.
Alison Mannion - Dec 20, 2021
I had booked this for my husband’s birthday. Our two daughters decided to have a go too so it was lovely to do this all together. This has been so much fun and we all thoroughly enjoyed the session. It was also very informative too, with Michael telling us about the history of Terrariums, we all enjoyed the quiz and Prosecco too! We came home with 4 lovely terrariums. Would highly recommend.
Becca Thomas - Dec 18, 2021
We had an amazing time at the terrarium class with Mike! Prosecco on arrival and then an amazing class atmosphere, with lots of handy tips on terrariums. We were really impressed with the terrariums we created as well. Mike made it such a fun afternoon - we couldn’t recommend him more highly. We will be back! Had a lovely time
Anonymous - Dec 13, 2021
Great fun, loved it. Got a history lesson as well as a lovely terrarium at the end and met some lovely people, highly recommend this course.
Holly H - Dec 6, 2021
Absolutely brilliant class. Really well prepared with all the items laid out on the table. Michael was engaging and it was great to hear facts about terrariums as well as making them. The value for money for this class is great with all the items you get included and I can't recommend it enough - not only is it a soothing way to spend an afternoon but you leave with a terrarium to treasure and lots of hints and tips to look after it.
Donald McLean - Nov 29, 2021
I absolutely loved it! I got this as a present and it had never crises my mind to take such a class. It was absolutely brilliant in a super cool setting and the presenter was great and you come away with a fantastic terrarium! Lovely mixed crowd of people. I 100% recommend it.
Anonymous - Nov 28, 2021
Really enjoyed this masterclass, it exceeded our expectations. The teacher was funny and informative. Would highly recommend this masterclass.
Vish Desai - Nov 23, 2021
A really lovely experience. Nice venue, informative and entertaining. Michael was an excellent host!
Sarah Kay - Nov 22, 2021
Class was really good fun. Great host and lots of info about the history of terrariums and how to care for them going forward. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Joey Mazars - Nov 22, 2021
Great workshop and experience!
Daisy Morrison - Nov 17, 2021
Fantastic session, with an absolutely lovely group of people. I learnt so much beyond the actual terrarium making, and had a load of fun - thank you so much!
Fredi C - Nov 15, 2021
The class was well organised and the teacher was attentive.
Ralph Wong - Nov 15, 2021
I have had prior knowledge of terrariums but there were questions unanswered, some used activated charcoal, others said not to, then some added isopods to the mix. The class was informative but dwelled too much on the origin, it was fun though and the participants at my table were friendly. The Fittonias' were a great fit for this but some of the other upgrade plants were too big to fit in the regular terrarium provided, hence the chance to upgrade. Perhaps you would consider having other varieties of plants that would fit. All in all a great way to spend a few hours, gaining insight into this.
Ben - Nov 14, 2021
I booked the class for my wifes bday. It was a fantastic afternoon, Michael was an excellent host/teacher throughout the afternoon. Would highly recommend this masterclass.
Rebecca - Nov 13, 2021
As non gardeners we weren’t sure what to expect from this class but we’re not left disappointed. We had so much fun! The instructor Michael was very engaging. A nice little group of 8 meant we could chat, laugh and compete against one another for upgrades. Thoroughly enjoyed the class and absolutely love my terrarium! Thank you BB :-D
Anna Marcuk - Nov 6, 2021
It's been so much fun! Definitely would recommend and recommending to everyone! Very educational, full of games, fun and great atmosphere!
Martin Illing - Oct 30, 2021
If you’re idea of returning to nature is sitting in an area akin to a large department TV sales floor, whilst your instructor tries to be heard over irritating music and other presentations, this is for you.
Florin Gheorghiu - Oct 29, 2021
Awesome workshop!
Bradley Jones - Oct 25, 2021
Really enjoyable activity. The staff are friendly and welcoming. It was interesting and entertaining. Great fun!
Simone Lander - Oct 24, 2021
What a fantastic couple of hours. Cameron was brilliant- very informative and offered great advice & assistance with the planting. I would definitely recommend the workshop. Thank you very much for a fab time 🌳☘️🍃🪴
marco civale - Oct 17, 2021
It was a lovely experience. I loved the time I spent doing the terrarium, it's looking lovely. Very professional!
Hazel Elder-Vass - Oct 11, 2021
We really enjoyed our class, our tutor Cameron was great, definitely recommend!
Alex Da Camara - Oct 11, 2021
Cameron was a fantastic instructor, giving us the history of terrariums which was very interesting, while also giving plenty of help when needed. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyed by both me and my partner, and we would love to do it again! Some tiny feedback, me and my partner didn’t drink and it would be nice if they offer a juice option for those of us who aren’t into Prosecco. (Water was offered and we appreciated that)
Sarah Miller - Oct 4, 2021
Great Fun, Great Environment and we came home with two terraria - what's not to love
Karen Turley - Oct 3, 2021
The class itself was great, however after cards when walking around due to rain my friends bag split and terrarium crashed to the ground. Then later on when in a public toilet I hung my bag on a hook, the bag tapped the back of the door and the glass broke. Would be beneficial if you said to people that they are very fragile and to take extra care, especially when walking round London. So a great class but unfortunately we both had nothing to show for it.
Gabby - Oct 2, 2021
Amazing class, couldn’t recommend this more! Cameron was amazing and great at explaining how to build the terrarium. 5 stars and a lovely afternoon activity.
Nita Mistry - Sep 20, 2021
Such a lovely afternoon set in a great location. Cameron certainly knew his stuff and presented all things about Terrariums in a relaxed but fun manner. Thanks BB - I am looking forward to watching my plants grow and thrive.
Zena - Sep 20, 2021
Brilliant class, really fun, and very proud of our terrariums!
Kristen - Sep 18, 2021
This class is fantastic- we booked it as a birthday present, and the recipient had a great experience. Cameron was a great host. Highly recommended!
Isabel & Claire - Sep 15, 2021
Cameron was nothing but AMAZING! He was so knowledgable and made the class super fun ~ he really went above and beyond to make the evening special and as a result our terrariums are beautiful! We can't wait to watch them grow and hopefully return again, to be hosted by him!
Benu Khanna - Sep 14, 2021
An excellent way to spend the afternoon. Very well organised
Valentina Carmona - Sep 13, 2021
Had an amazing time! Michael (our instructor) was extremely helpful and made the afternoon very fun and interesting, we learned so much, enjoyed the drinks and got along with everyone there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!!
Heather Shakeshaft - Sep 13, 2021
In love with my terrarium! It was a great class, with limited enough numbers that you never feel left without help. The host was great, with good tips, facts and top ups of prosecco.
Anna - Sep 12, 2021
Such an enjoyable workshop! Went with a group of friends and we now each have a beautiful terrarium. Botanical Boys thought of everything (even Prosecco!) and Cameron was a great host. Would definitely recommend 😆
Nina - Sep 7, 2021
Most fun class i have ever been to Michael was amazing Thank you botanical boys😊

Heidi&Suzie Putney high school - Sep 5, 2021
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! We had such fun, learnt loads and as if by magic (and with some kind help) we ended up with two fantastic terrariums. We will certainly be back for more.
Becky Pulley - Sep 5, 2021
Such a brilliant workshop! I learnt a lot and I’m very pleased with my terrarium too. This was such a fun way to spend an afternoon, I’d highly recommend it!

Really great class with superb information on history of terrariums and advice on building from Cameron. Would definitely recommend.
Alice - Aug 23, 2021
Really great class - nice to have some history & background as well as the little pop quiz afterwards. Cameron was fantastic - really welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable and really added to the experience. Very pleased with how my terrarium turned out and it now has pride of place on my shelf!
Katie - Aug 22, 2021

Nanci Louzinho - Aug 16, 2021
Absolutely loved the workshop
Lee Bridgman - Aug 15, 2021
Was such a great experience and can not recommend it enough! Our practice leader Cameron was ace, and the whole session is a hidden gem of London.
Robert MacGeoch - Aug 14, 2021
Excellent! Great setting and wonderful to learn a little about the history of terrariums. We were walked through how to create our own and given the liberty to design it how we wanted. Fantastic and rewarding way to spend an afternoon.
Jade - Aug 9, 2021
This was such a good class! I came away with a great knowledge of terrariums, how to care for them and where they originated from. Plus a stunning handmade terrarium that hopefully I’ll love for many many years! I’m recommending this class to everyone I know.
Grant WILLIAMSON - Aug 8, 2021
Really enjoyable course. Interesting bit of history before diving in and getting our hands dirty. Everyone left with an amazing looking terrarium and a big smile on their faces. Recommended.
Reem Hasaballah - Aug 8, 2021
It was amazing the team was very nice and helped us step by step plus we had Prosecco always a plus but I definitely recommend and will be coming back again

Loved it! Instructor was great, interesting class, lots of info on history & care etc, terrarium looks fantastic!!
Dimple Divecha - Aug 2, 2021
Great class! The instructor was knowledgeable and clear. Wonderful to get your hands stuck into some soil and get creative with plants. The only thing I would say is it felt a little rushed, I think maybe half an hour extra would have been perfect so we have enough time for the history bit, the hands-on bit, and then any follow-up questions, etc. Regardless of that, would still highly recommend!
Wanju Lee - Jul 31, 2021
Did it for my birthday with two friends and we loved it! Super fun and we learnt a lot.
Nicole Engelmann - Jul 25, 2021
Loved the workshop! I attended on my own, but this can also be a fun thing to do with a friend or group of friends. I learned really interesting things about the history of terrariums and immensely enjoyed the creation of my very own one with the guys' guidance. Highly recommend!
Nick Burden - Jul 13, 2021
Absolutely fantastic class, great way to spend a day and love my new Terrarium!
Amber Morrison - Jul 12, 2021
Fantastic day, learnt a lot and walked away with a beautiful terrarium!
Sarah-Jane Brush - Jul 12, 2021

Faisal Ghloum - Jul 11, 2021
It was a lovely experience! Had so much fun with my friend
Lewis Humble - Jul 5, 2021
Amazing all round experience with engaging and entertaining hosts. Plenty of history and context given which made the experience feel really worthwhile. Will recommend to all my plant loving friends
Sheena - Jul 4, 2021
A great way to spend a couple of hours. Micheal our host was great, it was informative, relaxing and you create a piece of art to take home with you.Would make a brilliant gift for that awkward person to buy for 🙂. Highly recommend !
Vanessa Henfrey - Jul 3, 2021
Great relaxing class. Learnt about Terrariums, and how to plant them and came away really pleased with my terrarium created. Was also really very covid safe with all measures fully respected. highly recommend!
Monika - Jun 29, 2021
I loved my terrarium class run by the Botanical Brothers on Sunday. It was a couple of hours well spent in a very relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend it to anybody who loves plants and enjoy creating beautiful things. Thank you so much.
Ivanna Tripaldi - Jun 28, 2021
Michael was very friendly and the workshop was informative and relaxed. I love terrariums and truly enjoyed creating one. The only thing I would have like more of is more explanation on what’s the reason we use each ingredient and how it contributes to the overall growth. I am quite geeky about it so maybe is just me! My partner loved it too and we now have two beautiful terrariums at home.
Donna Williams - Jun 27, 2021
I thoroughly enjoyed my masterclass and am so pleased with the terrarium I created. The workshop environment was well set out, knowledgable tutor with excellent facilities.
Alice Davies - Jun 20, 2021
Brilliant class, we had so much fun and learnt a lot more than we expected too! Our teacher (sorry, I can't remember his name) was brilliant. Would recommend to anyone!
JH - Jun 20, 2021
Nice venue, relaxed but informative atmosphere & enthusiastic instruction. Really enjoyed my day & delighted with my terrarium masterpiece! :)
Isabela Oliveira - Jun 15, 2021
Terrarium masterclass was amazing. I got to know more about it, created a beautiful terrarium and had a lot of fun. I already recommended it to all my friends.
Elizabeth Twyford - Jun 14, 2021
fun and informative - great stuff!
Anonymous - Jun 12, 2021
Was a really fun experience and the host was hilarious. His assistant was also lovely. Would recommend!

Lots of fun and learnt a lot. Terrarium looks great on my desk. Thank you!
Julie - Jun 8, 2021
Fantastic afternoon, we loved our Botanical boy/tutor’s enthusiasm and passion, thank you!
Kayleigh Smith - Jun 2, 2021
Welcoming, friendly & very helpful...what a lovely host. Everyone left really happy & pleased with their terrarium. Love that they also offer follow up advice & help if needed.
Terry - May 30, 2021
Great gift especially for people with tiny gardens!
Andrada - May 27, 2021
Amazing class! Great host, very well explained and plenty of materials and opportunity to get creative!
Lyn - Dec 27, 2020
Brilliant workshop, funny and informative with a lovely glass garden to take home.
Olivier - Dec 21, 2020
Really liked the workshop and Michael was really nice and made the session interactive. The only thing I’d correct is the venue . Although it’s grand , it was rather loud and hence quite difficult to focus on what Michael was saying . I would definitely organise the session somewhere a bit more intimate
Jenny - Dec 6, 2020
Great fun, lovely roomy space and enthusiastic teacher. Learnt more about Terrariums as well as got to create my own to take home and treasure.
Helen - Dec 3, 2020
Really fun. Danny was massively engaging and supportive. Did this online after a series of unavoidable cancellations but it still worked and plants arrived unharmed in post. Would definitely recommend.
Marie Juliette - Nov 15, 2020
Great workshop, very dynamic and interesting. I really had a great time. The online version works very well.
Lydia - Nov 14, 2020
The most loveliest class, very well put together and all done very well. The teacher was great and we had a great few hours workshop. Would highly recommend to anyone
Toni - Nov 6, 2020
The workshop itself was good. The trainer had a great energy and the experience was fun. However, it was 3 of us doing the course, and a couple of weeks after we took at home the terrariums we made at the workshop, all the plants had died and there was mould. All 3 of us followed the exact guidelines and kept the terrariums as suggested but weirdly they all died at the same time. Of course when dealing with plants there might be occasions where the plants don't survive but in this occasion is hard to believe it was a coincidence for all 3 of us.
Bex - Nov 5, 2020
Really fun workshop - entertaining and quite therapeutic! Host really knew his stuff (and plants). Thought was good value for money. Fingers crossed we can keep the terrariums alive!
Kirsti - Nov 4, 2020
Michael was an excellent host and teacher for this masterclass. The level of engagement and fun was just right, and the prosecco was an added bonus! Really enjoyable and would book something similar again.
Perrine - Nov 3, 2020
I really enjoy my time at the Terrarium Masterclass. We had an introduction on the terrarium history which was very interesting and then built our own Terrarium with the advise of an amazing teacher. It is a very good price for value as we go home with our own Terrarium. I really recommend this class! Thank you Botanical boys
Kathleen - Nov 2, 2020
I loved it! It was a fun class. It’s very relaxing to make a terrarium! Love, love, love the finished product! Love looking at the terrarium!
Laura - Nov 2, 2020
One of the best workshop I have ever attended. My terrarium looks amazing and the "boys" were super nice, helpful and very very funny! Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. And I feel super lucky I managed to attend the workshop before lockdown! HIGHLY recommended it! ah one more thing: prosecco is included! I had 3 glasses :))
Chee - Nov 1, 2020
I did this with my 3 kids to kick off the half term and it was amazing, the kids had a great time and the team at botanical boys were great, my kids even learnt about the history of terrariums :) This is a great activity for both adults and kids.
Simon - Oct 31, 2020
I had a very enjoyable afternoon making my own terrarium with Botanical Brothers. I found the class to be informativve and fun! Top class materials and teaching. The end result stunning! Would definitely recommend.
KAI - Oct 27, 2020
Super fun & informative! Will definitely go back! Thank you again :)
Liv - Oct 26, 2020
This workshop was so much fun! Informative, interactive and different to anything we'd done before, we had a great couple of hours. The terrariums are much bigger than the photos suggest, and the workshop was more than worth the money. I would definitely sign up for another workshop with Botanical Boys!
Carla - Oct 26, 2020
Really enjoyed the class, the teacher was really informative and fun to listen to. The terrariums looked great when finished, but unfortunately my case got broken on the way home - maybe bring bubble wrap if your traveling a long distance? Definitely recommend the class though!
Peter - Oct 20, 2020
A really fun experience and a beautiful keepsake to take away at the end of it. Even a non-gardener, non-artistic person like myself was able to make something really cool. The teacher, Dan, was a really interesting, friendly bloke who brought a great energy to the class and was knowledgable and skillful. I would highly recommend to a friend and may even do the session again myself.
Bethany - Oct 17, 2020
We had so much fun at the Terrarium class- it was fun, relaxing and a great way to cut off! Thank you!
John - Oct 12, 2020
Danny was informative, kind and patient. A great class which I recommend to all!!
Amy - Oct 6, 2020
It was such a lovely class, I had an amazing time and the team were so friendly - thanks Botanical Boys!
Patrick - Oct 4, 2020
The workshop was really great. Well crafted. Danny and Michael were very knowledgeable and the space was really nice in the Samsung shop above coal drops yard. Great date idea with prosecco a bonus!
India - Oct 4, 2020
Danny (I hope this is how you spell it!) and Michael absolutely made the experience. They were engaging, funny, helpful and knowledgeable. It was such a great terrarium class for us beginners and in a really cool setting. We had such a great time and it was a perfect “social-distanced” activity during these crap times! Couldn’t recommend more. Thanks for a great time, Jon and India. X
Karan - Oct 3, 2020
Excellent Workshop! The guys did a very good job of making everyone feel welcome, providing an informative session of the history of terrariums, topping up our Prosecco glasses and of course walking us through how to best create our terrariums. The end result was fantastic! Perfect for a casual outing or even a special event (we went for my friend’s birthday treat...safe to say she thoroughly enjoyed it!). Highly recommend if you’re looking for something that’s a bit different!
Rosie - Sep 30, 2020
We had a lovely afternoon making terrariums! Have come away with a beautiful, living work of art. Our instructors were relaxed, humorous and knowledgeable. Now to hope mine survives!
Alix - Sep 28, 2020
This class was brilliant! The facilitators gave really clear instructions and made it super fun. Best way to spend a Sunday afternoon - I would highly recommend this :)
Janica - Sep 27, 2020
I got this as a birthday present for my partner and we had the best time! You learn about the history of terrariums and get your hands dirty quick making one. Would recommend this to everyone!
Emily - Sep 26, 2020
A really nice relaxing thing to do, especially if you’re in London at the minute with all the restrictions! Would definitely do it again
Basak - Sep 24, 2020
Great experience at such a pleasant place with amazing tutors. It was my first class since March/start of lockdown and I enjoyed it so much. I wanted to buy a terrarium for a long time, but instead of buying it making it myself was a good idea. I'm already planning my second terrarium - second class.
Dora - Sep 22, 2020
Highly recommend!
Dora - Sep 22, 2020
Super fun class and helpful staff! We were glad that we rescheduled instead of getting a refund due to covid. Great to support businesses that deserve it. Highly recommend this class!
Sheila - Sep 21, 2020
Fantastic fun day afternoon. Michael and Danny were fantastic hosts and were very helpful in every way. Could not recommend it highly enough.
Charlotte - Sep 21, 2020
We had such a great experience at the Botanical Boys Terrarium Masterclass! Everyone was super friendly and helpful, the class was great value for money and everyone's masterpiece ended up looking beautiful! A really relaxing atmosphere and the perfect way to spend an afternoon!
Rebecca - Sep 21, 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed the terrarium making course! The setting and location was perfect with great instruction and materials provided. We were very pleased with both the making process and the final product!
Eila - Sep 21, 2020
Relaxing and educational - perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Ellie - Sep 20, 2020
Really informative session and great value for money. We have come away with two beautiful terrariums as well as the skills required to look after them. We have completed a lot of different workshops and this was by far the best one we have done - would definitely recommend!
Margaux - Sep 15, 2020
Really enjoyed the experience. Only comment I had was that there wasn’t much flexibility in terms of creativity. We were all given the exact same materials/plants. It would have been nice to be able to pick your own materials from a slightly wider range of choice. Otherwise it was great fun. Thanks!
Grace - Sep 14, 2020
Great workshop, really well run and organised. Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Ruggieri - Sep 3, 2020
Fantastic Masterclass! The atmosphere was super friendly and relaxed. You leave the class with many tips, insights and of course a gorgeous terrarium! Highly recommended
Mar - Sep 2, 2020
Great class with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I made a beautiful terrarium (all materials provided and a chance to upgrade to different plants if wanted), had a glass of Prosecco and learnt a little about the origins of terrariums. Highly recommend it!
Madison - Sep 2, 2020
Really fun, great instructor, and good value for money as buying a terrarium of that size would cost a lot more than the class. All of my friends are now jealous of my terrarium and will be signing up for classes soon!
Connor - Sep 1, 2020
Great class ran by two brilliant guys. They're both very knowledgeable, and reallt set the scene with the history of terariums. The class is very much 'this is how you do it' and then off you go! It's a great way to get the creative juices flowing. My fiance upgraded to the Eden jar and had people from all over the class/shop commenting on it. I would definitely recommend going, and will perhaps come back with more friends another tike!
Victoria - Aug 24, 2020
Such a fun and enjoyable afternoon making our own terrariums with Botanical Boys. Very knowledgable and great plants meant we came away with something we’re really proud of. Highly recommended!
Emma - Aug 24, 2020
Really good fun. An exercise in mindfullness. Great quality products.
Katya - Aug 24, 2020
What a great way to spend a couple of hours! Firstly, the space used was fantastic. The workshop was set out well, making it easy to feel comfortable and safe within social distancing guidelines. The guys presenting were brilliant! From the really interesting history around terrarium lesson and the ‘how to build the terrarium’ guide, the guys were both engaging and attentive. The glass of bubbles was a lovely touch and we had a really enjoyable time creating our little gardens. I would definitely recommend the workshop and will be booking again for birthdays. Thanks Botanical boys
Nancy - Aug 23, 2020
Had a great relaxing time at the terrarium making class by the Botanical Boys. The instructor was attentive and genuinely shared the love for plants with the class.
Fiona - Aug 18, 2020
Fun experience!
Roann - Aug 16, 2020
Such a great experience!
Rizwan - Aug 16, 2020
The masterclass was very simple but engaging at the same time and very relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and came back with a beautiful Terrarium
Mar - Aug 16, 2020
I really enjoyed this terrarium class. Very spacious working area at the Samsung shop, the guys were super friendly and helpful, very generous with materials too. Loved the brief terrarium history intro and visiting the shop for a plant treat afterwards. Highly recommend it
Charlotte - Aug 13, 2020
This worksh
Nicola - Aug 12, 2020
Great thanks! My only suggestions would be: The trainer could speak a bit louder since in the airy room, with Air con, and masks on, it was hard to hear him (and/or mix up where he stands in the room, though I realise easier for everyone to face the front) I'm not sure the stones /rocks etc were spread out across all tables at the start - there were none on our table so seemed like we didn't know that opportunity was on its way! I had a great time and am really happy with my terrarium, thanks!
Sharon - Aug 10, 2020
Love the class. Was lovely to learn about the history of plant terrariums and the technique to make one. The tutors were all nice and knowledgable. I love the terrarium I made and would love to do it again with friends/family. The class was conducted in a nice studio with an air-conditioner. Major bonus point.
Ben - Aug 10, 2020
Good class, both very welcoming and willing to answer questions about the class and beyond.
Ian - Aug 10, 2020
Hosts were really knowledgeable and friendly. They made special arrangements for social distancing, it felt safe and not over the top. The activity itself is fun and calming. The end result looks great in our bedroom. Would recommend.
Alex - Aug 9, 2020
Lovely teachers, bit of bubbly, great venue, learned a lot and came away with a great terrarium.
Danielle - Aug 6, 2020
Fantastic class, the teacher was really friendly and welcoming , great atmosphere in the session and i now have a gorgeous terrarium! Highly recommended
Natalie - Aug 6, 2020
Was a fantastic experience!! Not only did i get to express my creative side but learn about the history and maintenance for my new Terrarium. Has definitely solidified my love of plants and now Terrariums, I would recommend this class for everyone, it was fun, social, relaxing and satisfying to walk away with a beautiful end product.
Sarah - Jul 30, 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed this class - it was very relaxing and mindful and I am really pleased with the Terrarium I produced. It was the perfect activity and the Samsung space is lovely and airy so felt very safe. it was a shame that we had to wear masks for the entire experience as we was plenty of space and we were easily 2m away from each other but I guess thats just the way things are at the moment.
Mystery - Jul 27, 2020
Very therapeutic! Loved the class 3 hours went just like that! Would definitely reccomend. Wasnt too fussed with the Samsung phones but understood this needed to be done to rent the space. Would have been good to be able to choose a selection of plants. Other than that, my husband and I really enjoyed it and are very very happy with our creations!
Angela - Apr 4, 2020
The class was good, I enjoyed making the terrarium and it is still alive! I wasn't so keen on the class space though as it was taught in the Samsung building, on a open floor in a public area, where there was lots of hustle and bustle and noises of other things going on. Our host had a microphone, so hearing him wasn't a problem, it just wasn't as tranquil as I would have liked and seemed an odd setting for something so mindful. The theme for the class was mindfulness and connecting to nature but the setting was like being in the middle of a shopping centre. I did still enjoy the activity though.
Helen - Feb 16, 2020
This class was so great! Love my terrarium!
teresa - Feb 9, 2020
The classes was small so the teacher could give us attention when we needed it. The whole experience was fantastic and the terrariums turned out better than I expected. Would definitely recommend to do!
J - Nov 16, 2019
Fantastic! Would definitely recommend!
Rachael - Nov 12, 2019
Amazing class! The guys that run this are so knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun. I came home with a beautiful terrarium and a massive amount of plant care tips. I highly recommend!
Bhavita - Nov 5, 2019
My boyfriend and I attended the SamsungKK session on 2 November 2019 (13:00-15:00). We weren’t sure what to expect, having been recommended by a colleague, but overall had a very enjoyable time. The session lead was friendly and approachable, and provided an interesting history lesson on the evolution of the terrarium. Champagne and water were also provided, which was a nice touch. The lesson itself was well instructed and very hands-on, with great scope for creative freedom. We were given clear instructions on how to ensure garden longevity and there was a wide variety and ample supply of materials on offer. The resulting terrariums were generally excellent across the board and most seemed to really embrace the experience. However, there were a few elements that detracted from the overall experience which The Botanical Boys may wish to address for future sessions. Predominantly, we found the venue to be very loud (open to the public) and considering terrarium-making is pitched as a relaxing and mindful experience, this was quite off-putting and felt more like a live event than a closed session. Matters were compounded by the fact the sound system was hit and miss (even switching off at one point) and at times it could be difficult to hear all instructions. The session leader also hinted that they do smaller lessons (20 people was quite a lot) where they serve tea, and it was a shame this refreshment wasn’t on offer.
Kayleigh - Nov 4, 2019
I really enjoyed the informative and relaxing Terrarium Masterclass. The Botanical Boys are really friendly and I love my first terrarium :-) Thank you
Mariya - Oct 23, 2019
Very good!
S - Oct 16, 2019
Had a great time. it was engaging, fun, and educational. I love my terrarium!!
Charlotte - Oct 13, 2019
Absolutely inspiring and fun. Darren was a legend and super knowledgable. I appreciated his combination of history and education, as well as practical daily tips. Thank you!
Klaudia - Oct 11, 2019
Amazing workshop - so inspirational to grow and care for plants. Great venue and lovely atmosphere! Really made my day :)
Lara - Oct 7, 2019
This was a thoroughly enjoyable session. Darren from Botanical Boys was friendly, funny and informative. Along with taking us through how to make the terrariums, he talked us through the history of how terrariums came to be and their role in international trade. We also learnt about after care for the terrariums and general plant care. I did the class with some friends as a gift for one of their birthdays - ideal present and great afternoon. The Samsung space and Coal Drops yard is also a great location.
Anthony - Oct 5, 2019
Had such a fantastic afternoon learning about the history of terrariums and then going on to make one myself. Ben was such a lovely and knowledgeable instructor. I'd definitely recommend this to my friends 10/10! Anthony
Sebastian - Oct 1, 2019
Fun workshop. Quite proud of my creation :-)
Tuuli - Sep 29, 2019
Absolutely amazing. Not only had we the chance to create our own terrariums, we also got insight into how, when and where terrariums were first introduced to our society. The instructor was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the experience and hope to have a chance to participate in similar classes.
Mehdi - Sep 29, 2019
Brilliant workshop. Very informative and had lots of fun. Shout out to the prosecco & Darren for a great afternoon!
Rachel - Sep 25, 2019
Absolutely excellent class - the teacher was engaging and funny, and clearly very well informed. We had a great time and we had such a laugh with him and made some terrariums we’re really happy with!
Alice - Sep 21, 2019
Amazing evening, so interactive and funny... the dinosaurs were amazing! Love my new addition
Laia - Sep 19, 2019
This class was amazing, had so much laugh and Adam was great, considering returning for more terrariums!
Ting Yi - Sep 15, 2019
Definitely worth the money! The class was inside Coal drops yard Samsung's showroom kitchen and we even had prosecco during the class! Terrarium workshop was really fun and enjoyable! Would recommend!
Rachel - Sep 15, 2019
Amazing workshop! Very informative about the plants / history and care, and loved my finished terrarium! Will be buying this workshop for friends.
Joad - Sep 5, 2019
Really fun evening. Darren was charming and entertaining. We got our hands dirty and walked away with a lovely terrarium.
Wai - Sep 1, 2019
Great time. Great fun. Great experience!
Ray - Sep 1, 2019
Super super amazing! Very very interesting!
Anna - Aug 25, 2019
Really informative and high value- would attend anything else the Botanical Boys plan!
Nathan - Aug 22, 2019
Really informative, excellent hosts! Really fun class with a beautiful terrarium to take home. So patient with all our random plant questions and the 30 day guarantee is a good reassurance of the quality of the teaching and products. Can’t wait to do the Christmas wreath session!
Alina - Aug 16, 2019
Had a great time making a terrarium with the Botanical Boys. The setting - their botanical workshop in Coals Drop Yard - is really pretty and relaxing with lots of greenery around. We came away with lovely terrariums we are all proud of. Prosecco is also offered which is a lovely bonus! Would recommend this glass to anyone who likes plants, but particularly those who are rubbish at looking after them!
Joshua - Aug 5, 2019
Very informative and casual evening in their new space in King's Cross. The store is a pleasure to be in and provides loads of inspiration (that and the prosecco...) while making your own terrarium. Darren and Ben bring lots of enthusiasm to what they do and have created a really fun and unique workshop
Lucinda - Aug 4, 2019
A very relaxing class with friendly teachers. Learned about how to construct a terrarium, so feel I could make another one by myself now.
D - Aug 4, 2019
Had a great afternoon at my Terrarium workshop and am enjoying the fun and beauty of it everyday! Well worth learning and digging in to creating something beautiful! Thank you Botanical Boys!!
Francine - Jul 27, 2019
Best workshop we have ever been to! The guys are so kind, welcoming and supportive. Creating a terrarium with them was fun and relaxing in equal measure. We are overjoyed with our terrariums and will continue to treasure them. A very special experience in a very special place!
Abigail - Jul 27, 2019
The terrarium workshop was very well taught and thoroughly enjoyable! I would highly recommend it
Chris - Jul 16, 2019
Great workshop. Worth every penny. I had fun making my terrarium and learning about where they started and how to keep them alive. Also love the fact they guarantee the plants just in case you have any issues
James - Jul 14, 2019
Great workshop resulting in some lovely terrariums!
Ross - Jul 14, 2019
A fantastic workshop, surrounded by inspiring terrariums, and run by entertaining and helpful teachers. Thanks!
Tom - Jul 9, 2019
Very engaging and enjoyable session learning a little about the history of terrariums and then making our own. I would strongly recommend.
Phil - Jul 9, 2019
Had a great time at this workshop, Botanical Boys created a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere (Prosecco was an excellent touch). It was interesting to learn about the history of terrariums before we got stuck in to making our own. Really pleased with the terrarium I created, lots of different plants and decorative gravels to choose from to get creative, looks fab in my bathroom! : )
Lan - Jul 8, 2019
It was a great Sunday afternoon spending at the Botanical Boy's house. I've learned the history of Terrarium, as well as the skills to make one by myself. I think everyone deserves a bit of time to focus (instead of using your phone), discover your creativity, and find your inner peace. "When you don't create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. Your tastes only narrow and exclude people. So create. " - Jonathan Gillette Thanks Darren for offering me an unforgettable experience. Hope everything goes well in the future. :)
Noël - Jul 7, 2019
Awesome! Thanks guys. Great class for anyone who fancies learning more about terrariums and getting their hands dirty. :-)
Lloyd - Jul 3, 2019
The class was really good. Might be a good tip to say that they have a cat. My friend and I have pretty strong allergies so a heads up would have been nice. They were nice enough to give me some extra moss to put in the terrarium. The introduction was a little long~ but apart from that it was a good day out
Teresa - Jun 30, 2019
Thanks so much for opening up your world to us Ben and Darren! I am going through a tough time at the moment and decided to do this on my own today. You both were so welcoming and created a really positive vibe for the whole group! You were informative on the local area, on the history of plants and terrariums and you certainly made yours and bens passion really shine out. You made us all feel so comfortable and gave us the confidence to just let our creativity flow that at the end all of our terrariums had their own personalities - I'm so attached already and am so motivated to taking care of this little world! I felt so good after leaving today, despite everything that is going on external to this, and everytime I look at my terrarium I'm reminded of the positivity, relaxation and happiness that you transmitted at this masterclass. I'll definitely be back like I said - and wish you both all the best for the very exciting future for the Botanical Boys ahead!!
Joy - Jun 27, 2019
It was very interesting and the teacher was very nice and funny. Love my new mini ecosystem.
Miriam - Jun 25, 2019
We had an amazing time. Adam (I'm sorry if you're name isn't Adam!) is so much fun and a great instructor!
None - Jun 19, 2019
Excellent class! Relaxing and really interesting. Definitely recommend booking it! :)
Lewis - Jun 18, 2019
Such a fun Masterclass! Adam was a brilliant teacher, we learnt lots, drank bubbles and listened to some questionable music :P My terrarium looks amazing in my flat. Will definitely do this again at some point.
Lucy - Jun 17, 2019
The class was great, I would highly recommend and would definetly do it again! Really relaxing and informative with beautiful terraniums to take home in the end. The host was really welcoming and helpful. I loved the whole experience :)
Chris Andrew - Jun 16, 2019
This wasn’t a fantastic experience. The hosts (literally, as the venue was their own home, which was incredible) was great. It’s was a great mix of independent production and applied assistance meaning you felt the result was something you had created. Advice was platinum, but not forced. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in greenery or plants. Something to do as a group or a couple. I would not have known about this if it were not for Obby. Top stuff!!!
Camila - Jun 12, 2019
it was a great afternoon, learning about plants and having fun.
Alan - Jun 10, 2019
Amazing - great hosts, very interesting and entertaining at the same time, and catered for a whole variety of ages! Prosecco was generously served too which is always a bonus! Many thanks
Carmel - Jun 9, 2019
The perfect birthday present for my husband! We had such a fab afternoon in a beautiful space, and Darren was so informative and lovely. It was great to get our hands dirty and feel the soil and plants as we built our terrariums. I felt very proud of my creation and I would really recommend this experience.
Diane - Jun 9, 2019
A great two hours, very relaxing and instructive. Both my boys and I loved it! We are now watching over our quietly living terrari-a. The tutor was fun and encouraging. The location unique and a privilege to be in. Huge thanks to the Botanical Brothers and crew!

Really lovely workshop held in the Botanical Boys own home which was an amazing oasis. I am not green fingered in anyway but we came away with new skills as well as a gorgeous terrarium!

I booked the class as a surprise birthday present for my partner and it was great - would definitely recommend Adam was a brilliant host and gave a short history behind each of the steps and materials - this made the class more memorable. We felt comfortable throughout the class to ask questions and love that we can take home the outcome - our terrariums!

Adam led this interesting and fun workshop expertly in a beautiful home in Dalston. He talked us through the different stages and we came away with masterpieces! All this along with bubbles and a fab soundtrack. Thanks Botanical Boys.

Denisa - May 26, 2019
Absolutely wonderful class! very relaxing, satisfying the space is gorgeous and you get to take 3l terrarium home. My class was held by Adam (I am sorry if I got the name wrong) he was very friendly, funny and knowledgable! Excellent! I’ll be taking this class again 👍
Valérie - May 25, 2019
Amazing workshop and excellent customer service!!
Chloe - May 22, 2019
We had no idea what to expect but Prune, myself and 'mum' had such a great time with Adam. Mixing a little bit of history, teaching and fun. All three of us are super happy with our terrariums and we will be recommending these masterclasses to friends and family . Great idea for a birthday present: original, fun and beautiful. Big plus for me is that this terrarium will spark a conversation next time friends come over ;)

Really great class. My friend and I were the only two which was a nice surprise - lovely teacher, so knowledgeable. We were also given prosecco. Great evening and our terrariums are beautiful.
Adrienn - May 7, 2019
We had such a lovely time with the Botanical Boys. Warm welcome, great atmosphere, delicious bubbly ans so much fun while building your own terrarium. The guys have amazing knowledge about plants and it was great to get to know the history behind the terrariums. Highly recommended and I definitely would love to return either for private or corporate event.
Eleanor - May 6, 2019
We had a wonderful time with the Botanical Boys on Sunday. Not only did we get to make the lovely terrariums, there was also a history lesson, tips on how to look after the terrarium - and prosecco! Highly recommended.
Loretta - May 6, 2019
Brilliant workshop! Really wonderful environment, fantastic friendly team welcoming us and making the whole session very interactive and fun. They were so accommodating with our baby! Would recommend to anyone.

I had such a good time at the Terrarium Masterclass! The boys were so lovely and they gave a really interesting history of terrariums. There was loads of plants and accessories to choose from, and the whole experience was really relaxing and creative. Would definitely recommend!
Kay - May 1, 2019
Absolutely loved this masterclass! Darren was very knowledgeable and explained each process carefully so we could understand. I went home with my amazing terrarium and a full understanding of how to look after it 😀
Sophie - May 1, 2019
Fab workshop as always. Have now had two masterclasses with them and I would highly recommend.
Roxana - Apr 22, 2019
Such great fun ! Me and my mom had a blast !
Elizabeth - Apr 19, 2019
Good fun, and came home with a lovely terrarium.
Oliver - Apr 14, 2019
Really relaxing couple of hours. Learnt a lot about terrariums and their history, and ended up with some great terrariums to bring home. Would recommend!
HAYLEY - Apr 14, 2019
Botanical Boys. From the moment we walked in the guys were extremely welcoming. We booked the master class, 2 hour session. We had a brief history of how terrariums started which was extremely interesting. With prosecco in one hand and mud in the other, it wasn't your average Saturday but connected us with nature and gardening on a small scale. I can't recommend this enough, i just want to keep making them.
Rachel - Apr 11, 2019
Absolutely loved the finished product, great to come away with something you've made yourself and to get creative!
Lauren - Apr 7, 2019
Botanical Boys was the perfect Sunday afternoon activity! We had a great time and the instructors were very friendly!
Renata - Apr 6, 2019
A lovely afternoon and the outcome was definitely worth it, have already recommended to friends.
William - Apr 5, 2019
We really enjoyed this class! It was a peaceful way to spend an evening and the Terrariums we produced were lovely to take home.
Anna - Apr 3, 2019
I had a fantastic class with Darren who was an excellent teacher and explained so much about terrariums (including the history, the various components etc). He was patient and funny, and I really enjoyed the class. The studio is so gorgeous with many other terrariums (I ended up asking to buy one of them and took it home with me!!!). He also very helpfully explained in great detail every part of my terrarium and the proper aftercare. I’ll be spreading the word about this class to everyone. Highly recommend.
Darren - Apr 1, 2019
Fantastic way to spend a few hours! Set in a lush oasis in East London! Very relaxing and creative experience. Highly enjoyable and would definitely recommend! So so pleased with finished product.
Nishi - Mar 31, 2019

Ana - Mar 26, 2019
Was such a great day thankyou!
James - Mar 25, 2019
A five star experience!!! I had an afternoon right out of the top drawer. Thank you Botanical Boys !
Lexy - Mar 8, 2019
I absolutely loved this workshop - the hosts were very welcoming and I had a glass of prosecco by my side mere minutes after walking through the door - and the teacher was extremely engaging and informative. I learned more than I had expected to, and the friendly and relaxed atmosphere meant that I got chatting to people around me, so despite coming alone, it was nice and sociable. Super fun, and I love my terrarium! I made 3 more for Christmas presents!
Josh - Feb 11, 2019
I would highly recommend this course. Darren is fab and see his wonderful work shop in dalston is something out of a movie. With terraniums and plants, you name it growing here there and everywhere in his living room. We went on a friday evening with limited previous knowledge of the plant world and have opened up a door to a fabulous area of wildlife which we wish to explore in more depth. Having had our quick but comprehensive history of the terrabijms we were into the making. With plenty of inspiration around we started to create our eco systems. Great course and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Thank you Darren
Pablo - Feb 9, 2019
It was a great class and I really enjoyed making my own terrarium. I would only suggest to look at lighting of the studio as was a bit dark for me everything else was fantastic.
Gurprit - Feb 7, 2019
This was so much fun! The guys were very friendly and informative, the atmosphere was relaxed and the music was very much 80s (which was great). We had everything we needed to get on and make our own terrariums, even had a few little surprises to make our terrariums truly our own. I think I will definitely be doing some more classes
Lauren - Feb 7, 2019
I was part of a group of three that attended the masterclass as part of my friend's birthday. We had such an amazing time - the class was informative, fun, hands on and exciting! I really liked how the designs were freeform - it was good to create something unique, rather than follow a template, so I felt like I truly created something for myself.
Kathryn - Feb 4, 2019
Ben and Darren were both fantastic! A wonderful, fun and relaxing class in their beautiful home. Will be strongly recommending to everyone I know, it was so much better than I could have ever expected and my Mother had the best birthday gift experience! Thank you Botanical Boys!
Maxine - Feb 2, 2019
I’ve never made a terrarium before but I’ve always admired them. Creating one with the botanical boys was the most relaxing and therapeutic thing I’ve ever done. The environment and the music along with the tea & Prosecco really added to the whole experience and made it feel magical. I highly recommend this workshop. You won’t regret it.
Debbie - Feb 1, 2019
A nice way to be in touch with nature in the middle of your busy city day. Really enjoy making my own terrarium while learning about the history and tips to take care of it. The studio is amazing - surrounded by plants and terrariums, you would forget that you're in London!
Eleanor - Jan 25, 2019
The class was brilliant in a beautiful location. I really enjoyed putting together my terrarium (and enjoying a glass of fizz) and it now has pride of place in my living room! Thank you!
Sophie - Jan 21, 2019
What a great workshop! Filled with so much knowledge, history, tips and tricks. Absolutely love the take-home terrarium - can't wait to show it off. Thank you Darren and Ben!
Tim - Jan 16, 2019
A fantastic and well run workshop! The Botanical Boys run the workshop in a fun and informative way and were very hospitable and friendly. Highly recommended!
Vronsky - Jan 14, 2019
Brilliant experience within a very personal setting, suitable for the class. Thank you for the education and history lesson as well : ) I will denitley be recommending and also be back!
Serge - Dec 21, 2018
Great class, insightful - the guys provided interesting history and tips. Fun to experiment with different materials and build something you can keep and watch grow As recommendation I think the particular space (a one off) didn’t work and will definitly do another class with them at their own studio. Also it would be good to show different types of gardens you can make/ emulate as inspiration. Overall highly recommend though and I’ll be coming back!
Kimberly - Dec 20, 2018
This was an amazing night. I went with my partner and it was great to be creative and relaxed! I am excited to give out terrarium's as Christmas gifts- and I am hoping my partner books us in for another class so I can have one too!
