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…

Brilliant class. Lots of exciting and useful information. And terrarium looks amazing
Peter Evans - 29 April 2024
Got the ticket as a birthday present and wasn't too sure what to expect. I am happy to report I had a brilliant time and learnt quite a bit about terrariums and surprising things about bun moss! I am now tackling a new terrarium project at home - thank you!
undefined - 28 April 2024
Bought the Masterclass as a birthday present for my boyfriend. We had the best day, learning not only how to make a Terrarium but also the history of them. Darren was an amazing tutor! Hope to return in the future.
undefined - 27 April 2024
Great fun and interactive activity. Loved getting stuck in and being able to come home with something to remember the day with
undefined - 14 April 2024
Very knowledgable tutor, fun class, highly recommend. We went for a hen party activity, even people with no knowledge got really into the masterclass
undefined - 14 April 2024
A hands on, fun and informative afternoon activity with friends. Got to walk away with my very own masterpiece (if I do say so myself) of a terrarium. Could see myself coming back as a date activity or with family.
undefined - 10 April 2024
Amazing experience and Ginger Michael was a great host which made the session even more enjoyable. Me and my husband love our new terrarium, and would definitely recommend this to our friends.
Abigail Tonkinson - 8 April 2024
A fantastic and fun afternoon learning to build a terrarium! Darren was a fantastic teacher. Highly recommend!
undefined - 8 April 2024
The masterclass was so good, ginger Michael was excellent at engaging the group and explaining each step. I loved that you got a chance to get little figurines I think these definitely added a personal touch to the terrarium. The materials are of high quality and I liked that we were reassured of this during the class with the facts and awards! I've knocked off a star just because I found that it was a bit cramped I was practically leaning on the person behind me, there wasn't much space - a different table layout would help this or not having quite so many people in the class. Would highly recommend as a gift or just something to do on a Sunday afternoon :)
Matthew - 7 April 2024
Great experience and very engaging instructor, Michael. Great to take away the terrarium at the end!
undefined - 1 April 2024
A nice workshop, with good backround music and entertaining commentary. However it felt quitw a bit rushed: the time allocated for the terrarium is a too short to do it in comfort. Still doable, but it was unanimous for our group of four that one more hour would be much better. Alternatively, some help ahead of time would be benificial, so we could plan better. The instructor was friendly and accommodating, however I expected them to be mode decisive when asked to help with design (and it would definitely save time). There was clearly lack of convenient tools such as a plastic hose with a funnel, terrarium scissors, and a telescopic spoon/shovel. After comparing with another workshop where we've built a pair of terrariums, I'd say Botanical Boys has a massive room for improvement w/o too much effort.
Maureen Bush - 19 March 2024
Really great 2 hours. Fun but also taught me a lot. Terrarium in pride of place.
Sarah Taylor - 18 March 2024
Loved it!! Very informative and interesting course, friendly and fun, would highly recommend 😊
Celia Wong - 10 March 2024
I enjoy the class a lot. The quiz interaction was fun.
Rupert Henderson - 10 March 2024
Had a wonderful time, thank you!
Karin Russell - 10 March 2024
A most enjoyable experience. I am very likely yo do it again - very mich in love with our terrarium.
R L - 6 March 2024
The Botanical Boys workshop was really good, slightly disappointed it was in the Samsung building, I would have preferred a more green and lush natural environment, rather than surrounded by gizmos and gadgets. That said, it was really insightful and fun and we learned a lot. The experience was really fast paced, which is fun for some but I struggled sometimes to slow down and really enjoy what I was doing, as I wanted to take time to plan out where I would put each plant. Slight shame that there were also only two types of plants available to put in the terrarium as well. If I had known, I would have brought and extra cactus or something. I would definitely recommend it, but upon reflection the price is steep for what is basically two small plants in a glass jar (even if there is soil, charcoal etc included).
Jenny - 4 March 2024
Great afternoon workshop, my neice and I had wonderful time and made spectacular terrainiums. Ginger Micheal was super teacher, two hours flew by with lots information, help, fun quizzes and I even won a prize! Absolutely recommend to singles, couples and groups.
Freya Morgan - 4 March 2024
Fantastic terrarium workshop - my partner & I really enjoyed learning about the history & getting stuck in with building our own terrariums. They have plenty of plants to choose from & the option to purchase figurines to jazz it up - lots of room for creative freedom. Would recommend to anyone who loves plants & wants to try out a different experience.
Matt Gorman - 26 February 2024
Great class. Well paced and interesting throughout but at no point rushed. Michael was super helpful and kept the whole thing very relaxed but super informative. I did it with my mum as a gift and we had a great time.
Maria Ntalla - 26 February 2024
The terrarium workshop was lots of fun! We learnt a lot and ended up with a beautiful terrarium to take home. My only feedback would be to pace it more evenly; it was a little slow at the start and a bit rushed towards the end. Highly recommend!
felicity connor - 26 February 2024
Such a fun and informative experience. Would highly recommend doing with with friends, partners, or family.
Jane Kosmin - 26 February 2024
Such great fun. I booked this as a surprise for my husband who loves all things plants and it ticked all the boxes. We love our terrariums and will give gem pride of place in our kitchen
Aaks - 25 February 2024
Great workshop, engaging instructor that made it really easy and fun at the same time. Highly recommend it!
Kasia Demczenko - 19 February 2024
It was a great event, I really enjoyed it. The only thing I would improve is the acoustics. We were seated at the end of the table and could barely hear the speaker, so it was hard to follow the jokes and steps on making the terrarium. But overall super great event!
Dorothy Struthers - 18 February 2024
It was great fun and enjoyed the history. Would have liked more about the plants, different types to use and what I could expect in terms of growth and general care.
Ziad AlToura - 18 February 2024
An excellent afternoon, educational, funny, but most of all therapeutic 😍
Adam Morris - 12 February 2024
I really enjoyed the class! Our guide for the afternoon was great, he was knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and I left with an amazing terrarium that is on proud display in my living room! Thoroughly recommended.
Aaron - 11 February 2024
The workshop was great! Ginger Michael was a fantastic host, who provided some really interesting history about terrariums and was super helpful whenever we needed it. Would highly recommend the terrarium workshop to anyone.

Catherine Shepherd-Wells - 16 January 2024
Had a really great time. Really funny and informative as well as coming home with a wonderful terrarium
james cornforth - 16 January 2024
Thank you so much to Botanical Boys for the terrarium master class on Sunday, and especially to “Ginger Michael” who ran it. I can’t recommend this enough, it was given to me as a birthday gift, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Making your own terrarium was cool enough but Michael made it such a fun and informative experience. Get yourself booked on and get along to one this year.
Sofia Iglesias - 15 January 2024
We had a great time during the experience, I loved the learning the history of the terrarium at the begging of the session and making the actual terrarium was great.
Guillermo Aguiar-Esteban - 7 January 2024
Excellent class. The quality of resources and terrarium were fantastic. The host was funny and linked in lots of interaction between participants as well as educating us all about the history of terrariums as well as plant care. Overall, an incredible experience.
Katie McDonnell - 7 January 2024
We had such a great time at the terrarium workshop! Really fun activity with great storytelling in a gorgeous venue. Would highly recommend as an afternoon activity!

MK Cooke - 26 November 2023
Great experience. Learnt lots of interesting information about terrarium's and came away with a lovely one of my own (which is still alive!). Would not hesitate to recommend this experience to people who enjoy keeping house plants and want to try something a bit different.
Alys Irvine - 26 November 2023
Wonderful, informative and great fun. Our tutor Louis was fantastic and so helpful. The rest of the group were great; different ages and interests but all lovely. We would love to return and do another workshop, it was so different and unusual!
Sybil Seungdamrong - 25 November 2023
We really enjoyed the master class!
Kyle Purkiss - 25 November 2023
The class was very good and we love our terrarium, only thing was if they moved around the class and presented the steps at different places would allow everyone to be involved a bit more.
Natalie Watts - 20 November 2023
Can’t recommend more!
Harriet - 20 November 2023
Very enjoyable workshop and I am delighted with the final product
James Moran - 20 November 2023

Luke Newham - 19 November 2023
Awesome workshop, and you get to take home something that will last a long time!

Great workshop with all the materials needed to create a beautiful terrarium. Michael, the host, was brilliant and engaging. Made the class fun and interested with bits of history, great storytelling and pop quizzes.
Richa Tripathi - 5 November 2023
Really nice activity to share with friends. I gifted this workshop to my girlfriend and we shared a vessel with some vine at the spot :) We had a great day!
Sophie - 5 November 2023
It was such a fun workshop!
Bruna Coimbra - 31 October 2023
This was one of the best workshops I've done. I booked this for my boyfriends birthday and he absolutely loved it. 'Ginger' Michael gave such an amazing history on terrariums and its origin, and the class was very entertaining. The size of the jar was way bigger than I thought! And my terrarium looks amazing in the living room :)
Jodie Collin - 29 October 2023
An enjoyable and immersive workshop, highly recommend
Giuseppina Sanna - 29 October 2023
It was a very informative and fun workshop without mentioning that we took away a wonderful piece which is seating now in our kitchen! I only hope we can keep it alive. Thank you for the fun you provided
Calum - 29 October 2023
Great workshop, really enjoyed. Great date idea. Very informative.
Elizabeth - 23 October 2023

Amazing experience

Such a lovely couple of hours making a gorgeous terrarium and learning about them.
Hannah Bienge - 16 October 2023
I had a great time on the terrarium workshop. The host Michael was great. He was really funny and well informed. We made beautiful creations (if I don’t say so myself! 😂) and I even managed to get it home in one piece. I’d definitely do it again!
Julie Burns - 16 October 2023
I bought this experience day for my friends birthday . We had a wonderful day learning about terrariums , their history , how to look after them etc . Very relaxing , enjoying and therapeutic . The only small thing was that we couldn’t hear the ‘ teacher ‘ terribly well as we were furthest away from him . All in all ,loved it and would recommend it to anyone and best of all we had a lovely plant display to take home .
Cesar Perez - 16 October 2023
I booked a terrarium masterclass at the Samsung shop in Kings Cross for my husband's birthday, and it turned out to be one of the best gifts for both him and a memorable father-son activity. My 7-year-old son joined the experience for a small fee, and together, we created a stunning sphere terrarium that now proudly placed in our living room as a centrepiece. My husband is notoriously difficult to surprise, but this masterclass truly exceeded our expectations. It was an unforgettable, creative, and bonding experience, thank you Botanical Boys!
Valeria Pensabene - 8 October 2023
We loved it. Such good fun and some great skills learnt. Would definitely do it again.
Catherine Rose - 4 October 2023
Great fun informative session- make sure you bring a bag to take it home with you though!
Ashlyn Asenso - 3 October 2023
Very insightful. We became one with nature and felt zen. It was a great experience I went as a birthday gift to my best friend and we made a terrarium together. The quiz was fun and understanding the background of terrariums was amazing too. We had fun.
Christopher Hodgkinson - 27 September 2023
Such a great afternoon activity for two! beautiful end product that sits in your home made by YOU. REally interesting to learn how it is made, the steps and done in a really cool workspace. Recommend ++
Ali Allam - 24 September 2023
I attended this masterclass with my friend as a birthday present. It was amazing start to finish. The teacher was amazing , musical and hilarious and the class was informative but relaxing. Definitely recommend :) 5 stars
Wincy Shum - 24 September 2023
Lovely class! Leaning plant knowledge and got a beautiful plant glass at home!
Vera Mytilinou - 24 September 2023
We loved making a terrarium for our wedding anniversary.
Chiara Brayda Bruno - 18 September 2023
Went with my boyfriend and we absolutely loved it. The class was so fun and informative and we came away with 2 beautiful terrariums. Shout out to Michael for being an amazing instructor
Madeleine Bloomfield - 18 September 2023
Loved the venue, instructor, setting and finished product. Would highly reccomend, I’d even do the class again myself!
Alex Christodoulou - 16 September 2023
Amazing experience and it was very exciting
Robin Hines - 5 September 2023
Excellent workshop experience and terrarium to take away. fully met expectations.
Manraj Othi - 3 September 2023
Amazing event! Very engaging, great location and the terrariums were gorgeous!
Iris - 30 August 2023
I bought the Eden dome for my boyfriend as a birthday present and to accompany I went for a standard one. We had a great time and loved the terrariums. They were a good size and we had loads of fun putting them together. Michael was really great throughout the workshop, telling us the history of the terrariums in a very fun way. We left with loads of interesting facts and information about the why of every material/plant we used in our terrariums and instructions about how to look after them once at home. We really enjoyed it and would 100% recommend it.
Maria Gomes - 29 August 2023
My mum and I had such a great time! Ginger Michael is so much fun and we left super happy with our beautiful terrarium! Looking forward to doing another workshop soon :)
Anna Maria Manti - 28 August 2023
Wonderful experience! Definitely worth the price! Michael is very knowledgeable and a great host! We love our terrarium!
Karla Rivas - 27 August 2023
Louis and company were very professional all the time, easy to approach and sharing interesting facts about terrariums. It was a lovely workshop.
Becky Gatt - 21 August 2023
Brilliant day! Our teacher Mike was really engaging, fun and full of knowledge. The terrariums looked great and he gave us the history of terrariums and information about the different materials and plants we were putting inside. Location was great, Everything neatly set up for us and well organised. Thank you - it was a great day :-)
Joan Horsley - 20 August 2023
My daughter and I attended the Terrarium Masterclass, we had a super time and we are thrilled with our terrariums. Darren was an excellent teacher and we also learned a lot of interesting history. Both the workshop venue and Coals Drop Yard were great locations too.
Andrew Wheeler - 20 August 2023
Found the terrarium masterclass informative and practical with a great end product to take home.
Emma Tuffill - 14 August 2023
We loved the workshop and came away with two beautiful terrariums. We were only expecting the workshop to last for 2 hours, but it was at least 45 minutes longer, possibly due to the upselling of wine and Prosecco at the start. We did not want any of this, so for us we were sat waiting for at least 30 minutes to get started. We enjoyed the information that was presented throughout and the singing at the end!
Oliver Hudd - 7 August 2023
The session was absolutely amazing! Learned loads of interesting facts about the history of terrariums during the session. Had lots of fun creating my beautiful terrarium with all the tips they gave us. I can now confidently have a go of making one on my own. I definitely recommend going worth the price 10/10.
Midori Stoyle - 6 August 2023
I was given this class as a birthday gift. It was a really fun class - we learned the history of terrariums and then we were given all the instructions and materials to make our own. The class was full, but there were enough plants for everyone. The venue was bright and airy and easy to find.
Philip Hartland - 31 July 2023
I had a great time at the Botanical Boys terrarium workshop, not only did I learn how to make a successful terrarium but learnt a bit of Botanical history as well, Ginger Michael was a great host and tutor and good all round chap. If you're thinking of doing a workshop don't hesitate just do it, you won't be disappointed. Thanks again Michael for a very enjoyable afternoon.
Leonardo Taccetti - 31 July 2023
Great Workshop ! Highly recommended if interested in Terrariums and how to make them. The experience was funny and it flows quite smoothly. Thanks GingerMichael!!
Georgia Tinson - 30 July 2023
Such a fantastic experience, and the host - Darren, was super informative and engaging! Definitely recommend :)
Lisa Blair - 24 July 2023
I was so looking forward to this masterclass but I was disappointed. The workshop leader treated the session as if it was his personal performance space and it was misguided throughout. Prosecco or a soft drink is included in the Masterclass- odd to me that the workshop leader is drinking whilst he’s leading it? There was so much talk and showboating that there was no opportunity to talk with friends/family and have a lovely experience learning and building the terrariums. Alongside a rambling, clunky history of the terrarium (that took far too long), there were a random amount of music changes that he did on his phone to accompany his chat. There were many random sexual innuendos (the worst one being: advising us all that we should leave the lids off the terrariums for 2 days once we got them home - and then swiftly picking on two participants, a mother and daughter, and said if they didn’t do this it would result in the terrariums smelling and their friends and family saying “X and X have two very smelly holes.”) This example is one of quite a few. It was unprofessional and it didn’t feel like I was there to learn about terrariums, it felt like I was there to watch a show all about the leader. So odd and absolutely not reading the room. On a side note, we paid for the Eden Domes (which include some extra decorative stones and two extra plant choices.) There weren’t enough decorative stones for our party to each have one - and- we were told there was a problem with their supplier so the extra plants that fitted into the taller jars, wouldn’t fit into ours so we couldn’t use them. Deeply disappointing, especially considering that it was an upgrade option. There was no mention of these issues prior to the workshop/online and was suddenly talked about in the last 20 minutes or so of the workshop. Whilst we were creating them. We were taken to the shop afterwards and advised that we could get another stone from there and one plant of our choice that still won’t fit in the dome (and we could have just been given one at the workshop). I left having created a nice terrarium but it could have been so much nicer if we weren’t rushed from stage-to-stage of building it and instead of the mindless chat, we received a great amount of input along the way in a less sarcastic atmosphere.
Emily Puddifer - 24 July 2023
It was brilliant - two hours of fun, a great activity, Michael was a fabulous and fun instructor, everyone had a great time and learnt a lot. Highly recommend!!
Saxh Paisley - 23 July 2023
Loved the class. Warm, friendly environment. History about terrariums unexpected but very interesting. Terrarium now in situ at home and looks like it belongs there. Would 100% recommend. We had a great day and will be back!
Hayley Sosnovik - 22 July 2023
Such a fun and enjoyable way to spend the morning. We really had a great time and I love my terrarium. Thank you so much! Highly recommended ❤️
Angela Bird - 11 July 2023
This was a birthday present, so I had no idea what to expect. Great fun to do. I thought I would be hopeless, but am super pleased with the result!
Lidia Lakhu - 3 July 2023
I got back home on Saturday with a beautiful terrarium i had made in the masterclass. The setting for the class was the beautiful Botanical Shop. The teacher (Darren -if i recall correctly) was lovely, knowledgeable and very helpful), the class was busy (15 people) but there was enough space and materials for everyone to enjoy the afternoon....we were also treated to a lovely glass of bubbly....what else can you ask? I would definitely recommend!
Evangeline Harvey - 2 July 2023
The terrarium making class was excellent! All equipment needed was provided and the instructors were very kind and helpful! We had Louis for his first instructional session and he was great! We would and have recommended the class to others! Will definitely be back for the succulent class.
Hannah - 26 June 2023
The host was lovely; very friendly and personable. He explained things clearly but gave people the space to get on with their pottering. The group size was great and a friendly bunch. Beautiful item to take home. The only downside is getting it home the way it left the class was hard and things has definitely moved around so there was a bit of tlc to be done at home!
Lucy Meredith - 26 June 2023
My daughter bought me the terrarium workshop as a Mother's Day present. We had to reschedule twice: once owing to illness and then because of a train strike. It was well worth the wait. Learning about the history of terraria was fascinating, the quiz was fun and I am thrilled with my terrarium. The glass of prosecco and the plastic dinosaur were just the icing on the cake! I would heartily recommend the experience.
Stephen Mitchell - 25 June 2023
Great course covering all you need to know about planting a terrarium with hands on advice and support during the class.
Yuxin Lin - 18 June 2023
Well organised and super fun! Highly recommended
Sian Ayres - 12 June 2023
This was a great day. I treated my friend for a birthday. We both had a great time and laugh. Will definitely be doing the new workshops when they start. Thanks guys.
Sangeeta - 11 June 2023
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the class, it was informative as well as practical. Thank you
Marianne Goode - 11 June 2023
Really great class. Friendly engaging host and clear instructions given to the group. Our host was funny and approachable, with a cheeky side to himself. My only request is that when discribing how to find the venue in your emails is to state clearly that the workshop is in the Samsung store and not just above the plant shop. Thanks
Alica Thorpe - 5 June 2023
I had a lot of fun, a very good experience. Thanx
Neil Wilson - 5 June 2023
Really fun afternoon. Professional and funny host. Would recommend to friends and colleagues.

Feline Bol - 20 May 2023
Booked this workshop as a birthday present for my partner, it was fabulous! Michael is very knowledgeable about terrariums, the history and combines this with interactive, fun moments plus music. Highly recommend!!
Edward Biondini - 14 May 2023
Really informative, social and fun class! Darren really knows his stuff and creates a really good atmosphere!
Sam Defoe - 14 May 2023
One of the most wholesome and inclusive experiences to take part in. The Botanical Boys are doing great things with these classes, the content included and the atmosphere of take part in them . I would urge anyone regardless of how green fingered you are to book one, they do not disappoint, and offer great value too. Thank you for an amazing experience.
Naren Chetty - 8 May 2023

Nicholas Heriot Hill - 25 April 2023
What a fantastic experience !!
Emma - 24 April 2023
I really enjoyed the person leading the class and he made us feel comfortable. However, I was quite disappointed with the class. I thought I was getting to make a nice terrarium, instead we had a history lesson for the first 30/40minutes of the class. When we finally got to make the terrarium, I had a good time finding out about the layers needed and getting my hands dirty. When it was time to put the plants in, we somehow only had five minutes to do it. This is supposed to be the most exciting and creative moment of the whole class and we had five minutes. I had to rush my terrarium and shove a few plants in (may I say the most basic and cheapest plants you can find, a bit cheeky for a 70 pounds class) and we were pressured to finish quickly, and for what? To make a social media video for their instagram page. I'm sorry this is harsh but I was not happy and ended up purchasing some extra plants and redoing my terrarium myself. I think whoever organises these classes need to rethink about what their clients are paying for.

A most enjoyable afternoon. Thank you.
Kezi🥰💘 Bond - 23 April 2023
My boyfriend and I had the perfect date at the Botanical Boys workshop, where we made a terrarium together! “Ginger” Michael who led the session was passionate and hilarious & we learnt so much. It was great fun and we 100% recommend doing it!
Alison Brodie - 23 April 2023
Fun afternoon learning about and making a terrarium. Michael was knowledgable and helpful. Am pretty happy with my efforts - it would be better next time!
Sara - 17 April 2023
I had a lovely time learning about the history of terrariums and how to make my own! The host was terrific and funny. And gave me handy advice and also checked my terrarium was all set before I left.
Saima Rajasingam - 11 April 2023
Ginger Michael is a G……. Is amazing
Tina Rowell - 11 April 2023
Great class, longer than expected (2.5 hours) with some included surprise prosecco. The workshop guide Michael was hilarious and kept us all in a great mood. No negative comments to give!
Luke Blomfield - 10 April 2023
Really great class. Lots of fun and I got a cool Terrarium afterwards. Ginger Michelle was an excellent host.
Jane Middleton - 10 April 2023
It was a good class- learned a lot about the history of terrariums and their contributions to modern gardening and am pleased with what I made. I did find the upselling of more exotic plants for £5 each a little naff, it seemed to me it would have been easier to have offered them in the price and priced accordingly. I was given this course as a gift, and if I was giving it myself, I would want to feel everything was included - which it was- but the upsells made it seem like you had been given an incomplete gift - for that reason I would not buy it for someone else
Yulia Anikushina - 10 April 2023
My friends gave me a Terrarium Masterclass as a birthday gift. Michael was our host that day and he made it a really great experience! Not only building your own Terrarium is included, but also the history of terrariums, tips on how to take care of it, fun quizzes and games, and bottomless prosecco. After the workshop, I feel more confident with house plants in general. I definitely recommend the Botanical Boys workshop and I might attend it again in the future. Thank you!
Josh - 8 April 2023
An afternoon well-spent. Solid and accessible introduction to building and maintaining a terrarium, with a welcoming atmosphere!
George & Emma - 5 April 2023

Sian Ingram - 16 February 2023
We had such a great time building a couple’s terrarium with Botanical Boys! A great afternoon and an awesome terrarium to take home at the end of it

Great class, super organized . Everything was done in a timely manner, learned some history and left with a complete finished product that I made myself. Highly recommend.
Kelsea McReady - 29 January 2023
Attending a Botanical Boys Terrarium Masterclass made for a fun Saturday afternoon. Ben and Daz were friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. As someone who is more of a beginner when it comes to plants and plant care, I also found that the class was paced well and informative. Overall, I would definitely attend another class.
Melvin - 23 January 2023
Really great experience, so much fun and wonderful thing to do as a couple. Plus learnt a ton of things and drank processco all at the same time. Would definitely do another class again.
Barbara - 23 January 2023
Disappointed with the fact that we were only provided with one variety of plant for the terranium and frequently told how expensive and how short they were of certain items like moss etc. Reasons provided didn’t seem plausible and I found that the person delivering the course a little patronising at times. Price too high given the limitation on plants and terranium ingredients. etc. Such a shame as has the potential of being a very enjoyable class.
Tara Legge - 22 January 2023
What a fantastic afternoon. I had booked a place for my 11yr old son and the botanical boys were extremely accommodating to allow me to sit at the workshop table. We loved hearing about the history of terrariums, the competitive quiz and poo curling game at the end. A real win and despite tipping our terrarium over when leaving - the team were really kind helping us piece it back together! Thank you for a very enjoyable treat and a lovely setting! I highly recommend! Tara
Jade Mountain - 22 January 2023
Absolutely brilliant afternoon - great venue and Darren and Louis were fantastic. I learned loads AND left with something that is beautiful and totally made by me. Perfect afternoon out - for couples or friends.
Robert Chu - 18 January 2023
Ginger Michael was a fantastic host and helped everyone in the class make an awesome terrarium. I had a great time sipping prosecco while building my terrarium and received helpful tips and help along the way.
Peter Croucher - 16 January 2023
We had the best time last Sunday making our terrarium! Michael was super friendly and knowledgeable, made the workshop entertaining, and kept us busy with quizzes and games in between getting our fingers green. Would recommend as a gift or date idea 100%.
Kyler - 15 January 2023
It was a very easy-to-follow, interactive session that gave us the basics as well as some more advanced knowledge, made all the better with Michael leading the way. Would highly recommend!
Claudia Tobias - 15 January 2023
The terrarium masterclass was really fun and informative. Really happy with the end product, too!
Ben Miller - 15 January 2023
Michael was brilliant, funny and engaging and informative. Interesting to know the history, good to get involved in making your own Terrariums with a glass of Prosecco to help.
Lilly - 9 January 2023
My partner and I had a great time at this masterclass! Ginger Michael was very informative and personable, we learned a bunch and feel confident our terrarium will last a lifetime. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys getting their hands a bit dirty xx
Sophie Butler - 8 January 2023
Great activity, easy to follow instructions and our terrarium came out great. Hosts were friendly & engaging, would definitely recommend.
Suzanne - 8 January 2023
Enjoyable afternoon spent making our terrariums. Interesting to learn the history of them too. Hoping ours last more than the 2 weeks I normally manage to keep plants alive!
Ewan Rayment - 8 January 2023
A highly enjoyable class only let down by unnecessary 'entertaining' which detracted from the potential peaceful experience and essence of what was being created. Did not enjoy being co-opted into a dance at the end purely for their own promotional social media videos without any consent.
Shannon Sandilands - 8 January 2023
Was a really great experience. We had lots if fun making the Terrarium and learnt a bit about the history. Thank you
Simon Maddrell - 31 December 2022
Fantastic Experience! We really enjoyed our class. Fascinating history and very knowledgeable tutors. Will be back to build one of the other terrarium options next time.
Sara - 24 December 2022
This was such a great experience! It was informative and fun and at the end you get to take away your new creation. Mine was made as a gift so I've been checking it every day to make sure all looks good at the point I had it over. So far so good! Highly recommended.
Rachel Lawrence - 12 December 2022
Great class, lots of fun and provides lots on interesting info around terrariums history, botanical boys and terrarium care. Would highly recommend
Brianna Hendry - 11 December 2022
Had a great class learning how to make a terrarium. Time flew by so quick as it was so fun, and really interesting learning some history facts as well. I managed to nab an asparagus fern to add as an extra but would have been great to have enough available for all as it really made it look amazing! Definitely recommend whether solo or with friends or family, everyone was made to feel so welcome.
Amy Cussons - 10 December 2022
Really fun and informative!
Ciara Hanlon - 28 November 2022
Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Michael who led the class was really lovely, funny and made the whole thing really easy to follow. My terrarium now has pride of place in my lounge. Highly recommend.
Michelle Man - 27 November 2022
I had a great time at the masterclass, I love my terrarium and would 100% recommend to anyone! I went by myself but everyone was so super lovely and lots of individual people there. Michael, the teacher was brilliant, friendly, informative and entertaining. My class was held at the Samsung centre and it was a lovely space.
Tim Gardner - 27 November 2022
Truly excellent afternoon. Michael was a highly likeable and entertaining host who made everything flow really well. Great mix of terrarium background and history - enough to be interesting, not too much to mutter “Get on with it” ;-) Prosecco worked well, as always, and credit for having non-alcoholic option to hand. Enjoyed the light-touch informality & overseeing of proceedings. Left with beautiful terrarium & wondering who I could buy the experience for as a Xmas present. Would I change anything? No, I really don’t think so. Great job!
Lauren Everest - 27 November 2022
The class was so much fun! The instructor obviously knew his stuff and was very helpful if you needed anything. The Prosecco was a great touch. Would 100% recommend!
Craig Shardlow - 21 November 2022
Loved the terrarium making class. Really informative on the history of terrariums. Plus was great to know the reasoning behind each layer on the jar and what each purpose is
Sunita Jordan - 19 November 2022
We had a great time creating a terrarium which is growing beautifully!
Vero - 15 November 2022
It was great!
Sarah Rajabalee - 14 November 2022
I really enjoyed the masterclass and would recommend it to anyone. I would say that I would have liked to have been in a smaller class and be able to interact with the other participants more. It was also hard to see the presentation (which was really interesting) because I was too near the front.
Hannah - 13 November 2022
Really good workshop with some interesting info and then plenty of time to make the terrarium with lots of help to get it right. Fun creating your own design and looked really great at the end! Nice bubbly offered alongside too!! Would definitely recommend.
Maggie - 13 November 2022
Great experience! Definitely recommend to anyone looking to do something different in London with your friends. Loved it!
Joseph - 13 November 2022
A very well put together experience of building your own Terrarium. You will guarenteed to learn a lot about building your own eco-system and having fun at the same time. Instructor is very engaging, interactive, knowledgeful and fun. 100% recommend people to try it out.
Ann - 13 November 2022
Great learning experience, and overall a great experience! Everything is provided, step by step instructions at an appropriate speed. Darren is a wonderful teacher. Even though we were a bigger group it still felt personal and any questions were answered quickly. Highly recommended.

So much fun! Beautiful location, a lovely instructor and bought home a beautiful terrarium.
Cat - 7 November 2022
We both really enjoyed our day and Michael was a funny and thorough teacher!
Piotr Majda - 31 October 2022
It's a nice date idea with something you can actually take back home, maybe it's a bit pricy but you can sip prosecco during the workshop!
Charlie - 31 October 2022
Really fun and relaxed class. Enjoyed the way it was structured and how helpful our host was.

Rachel Joiner - 24 October 2022
Bought as a gift for my brother and we had a brilliant day! Worth every penny and our host was fantastic; knowledgeable and funny!
Evelyn Foy - 24 October 2022
A really lovely event! Took my boyfriend for his birthday and he was so happy! As someone who doesn’t really know much about plants everything was explained so well that I understood what was going on and we created a really beautiful terrarium alongside learning the history of everything definitely would recommend!
Megan Pollock - 24 October 2022
Such an amazing afternoon! Took my parents for a birthday treat and they also had the best time! The session was really fun but also super informative and we walked away with really amazing terrariums armed with full confidence that we can keep them going. Can’t recommend this more!
Louise Tonge - 23 October 2022
Really enjoyable class. Time went really quickly and I am very pleased with the finished product. Thank you

It was a very well organised day and a lot of fun. Darren made the instructions to build our terrarium very clear and gave interesting background history to how terrariums came about. Leaving with a beautiful hand made terrarium to take home!!
Anne Kidd - 17 October 2022
Entertaining session with explanation of history and science behind the terrarium. Plus a lovely living indoor garden to take home.

Excellent session, excellent resources, excellent tutor.
Paula Meyer - 10 October 2022
Loved this afternoon as it contained 2 of my favourite things, playing with plants and drinking bubbles with friends. I love how my terrarium turned out. It was fun getting creative with like-minded friendly people
James Drummond - 2 October 2022
Amazing experience with a very welcoming friendly atmosphere. A great range of various plants which look brilliant in my terrarium.
Massi Ghislandi - 26 September 2022
Great workshop...insightful...relaxing... And you get to take away a finished Terrarium made by you!
Laura Brooks - 19 September 2022
Learnt a lot today. Some history, terrarium gardening tips and aftercare. Well presented in pleasant surroundings and very happy with my final result. It was a lovely birthday treat. Highly recommended
Ruth L - 6 September 2022
Brilliant few hours in the company of Michael who was hugely entertaining as well as informative about how to take care of our terrariums. Highly recommend this masterclass for creativity and fun.

Really fun event and great value. Came away with a gorgeous Terrarium and knowing how to care for it. They also did some fun quizzes and prizes.
Katarzyna Nguyen - 15 August 2022
It was amazing! The instructor was extremely nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in making terrariums!
Angela Daymond - 11 August 2022
A wonderful workshop packed with information including the history of terrariums and hands on making our own terrarium. Darren was so helpful and full of knowledge. This was fully accessible for me and there was nothing I couldn’t reach. I would definitely recommend a Botanical Boys workshop and will be keeping an eye out for more that I can do.
Gabriel Goh - 31 July 2022
Did the terrarium masterclass on Saturday, 30 July and can honestly say it was such an enjoyable and engaging class - would recommend!
Sandy Downs - 29 July 2022
Our terrarium masterclass was excellent - we had great fun with the host, and the size of the class was perfect. It was a great balance of teaching, games, and being left to build your own design! Definitely an excellent present or treat day out :)
Payal Chaddha - 25 July 2022
Really enjoyed the experience, had so much fun and learnt so much. The terrarium is now thriving at home!
Neherun Nessa Ali - 23 July 2022
Very accommodating and knowledgeable class. However would say beverages provided should be attentive to people who also do not drink alcohol. Keeping in mind London is a cosmopolitan city with diffrent faiths and individual choices. Materials provided for the volume of containers for the group should be also shared equally. The overall experience was great.
Nicola - 20 July 2022
Fantastic class! Was great fun and I now have a beautiful terrarium. Darren was a fantastic host and tutor - very knowledgable, friendly and funny. He was super helpful answering any questions. Would really recommend this class! The bubbles were a lovely touch as well. I loved how he guided it as a mindful experience as well - really nice relaxing way to enjoy Saturday afternoon!
Jane McGinn - 18 July 2022
What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon! It was boiling hot, but our fabulous host Michael plied us with water (& Prosecco!) throughout the session. Michael was the perfect host – genial, amusing and informed. We learnt about the history of terrariums, which included the opium wars and espionage. The BBs provide all the materials you need to make your own terrarium but it’s up to you how you want the finished product to look. The others who participated were lovely and and we had all bonded by the end of our session. If you’re thinking about doing this course just get on with it and book it you won’t be disappointed! Thanks Michael!
Esme Owen - 18 July 2022
A great terrarium making workshop that I would 100% recommended, my partner and I did it for her birthday surprise and she loved it! There was a great atmosphere and I brought home a beautiful terrarium! Thank you!
Anna Glibbery - 17 July 2022
Amazing workshop! I loved the history about Terrariums and the super fun quiz that brought out our competitive side. Supper fun and friendly facilitator and great location! We will keep them in mind for future workshops!
Moria Barak - 11 July 2022
Perfect all around! Did this with my teenager, fun facts, lots of games, right amount of fizz (grownups only) and a beautiful terrarium to take home! Great location to hang out afterwards
Heather O'Reilly - 10 July 2022
Brilliant workshop, great to hear about the history of terrariums, beautiful location and great fun
Ruhi Shah - 4 July 2022
A wonderful class from start to finish! We did the class as a couple making one large terrarium together. Booking was very easy and the team were great at answering all questions beforehand and accomodated my special request for a different jar. The class itself was extremely enjoyable, we learned all about the history and care of the terrariums, with some prosecco for extra enjoyment! We were able to choose from different plants including Ginseng trees and other upgrade plants to make our perfect Terrarium and we were extremely pleased with the beautiful finished product! Would very much recommend this class to anyone!
Trina Smith - 3 July 2022
Epic Terrarium class held by Darren - so much fun! Quality products and equipment used to make your very own indoor garden with a cheeky glass of Prosecco while you get your creative juices flowing. I left feeling like I’d been educated and gifted a lovely keepsake - let’s hope I can keep these pretty plants alive!
tom byrne - 15 June 2022
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.
Natalia - 12 June 2022
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 - 12 June 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.
Tim Brogden - 1 June 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 - 30 May 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 - 16 May 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 - 16 May 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 - 9 May 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 - 2 May 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 - 1 May 2022
Really engaging session!
Sue Wall - 1 May 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 - 27 April 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 - 25 April 2022

Really fun thing to do as a couple

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 - 17 April 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 - 17 April 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 - 12 April 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

Sai - 10 April 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 - 9 April 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 - 9 April 2022
I loved every part of the workshop! And I love my new terrarium :)
Charlotte - 4 April 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 - 4 April 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 - 4 April 2022
Amazing class, learnt a lot and also have a lovely terrarium to take home! Very good value for money!

Great afternoon!
Ifeoma Uzonwa - 2 April 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 - 28 March 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 - 27 March 2022
We had the best time making our terrariums! Thanks so much for the experience
Kim Parker - 21 March 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 - 20 March 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 - 15 March 2022
Excellent class, well led and worth the money!
Rebecca Munger - 14 March 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 - 14 March 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

We had a fantastic time making our terrarium yesterday! Lovely and relaxed, and the facilitator was excellent - would definitely recommend!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!

The class was great. My wife and I had a lot of fun and we really enjoy our terrariums.

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

Excellent session run by Cameron. Interesting to cover some of the history and science and great fun to build the terrarium itself!
Rebecca Dawson - 27 February 2022
Very informative and great fun.

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!

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 - 21 February 2022
Great class with some interesting history thrown in! Recommend for anyone who has green fingers.
Sophie Chakowa - 21 February 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 - 21 February 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!
