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…

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!
review
Margaux - September 15th
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!

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!
review
Madison - September 2nd
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!
review
Connor - September 1st
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!

Katya - August 24th
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

review
Nicola - August 12th
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!
review
Sharon - August 10th
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.

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.
review
Sarah - July 30th
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.
review
Mystery - July 27th
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!
review
Angela - April 4th
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 - February 16th

Bhavita - November 5th
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.

review
Lara - October 7th
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.

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.

Alina - August 16th
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!
review
Joshua - August 5th
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

Phil - July 9th
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! : )
review
Lan - July 8th
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. :)

Awesome! Thanks guys. Great class for anyone who fancies learning more about terrariums and getting their hands dirty. :-)
review
Lloyd - July 3rd
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
review
Teresa - June 30th
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!!

Chris Andrew - June 16th
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!!!

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 ;)

HAYLEY - April 14th
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.

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.

Lexy - March 8th
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!

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 - February 9th
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.
review
Gurprit - February 7th
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
review
Lauren - February 7th
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 - February 4th
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!
review
Maxine - February 2nd
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.
review
Debbie - February 1st
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!

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!
review
Serge - December 21st
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!

Nadia - October 4th
We had a great time making our terrariums with Darren from Botanical Boys. He was very knowledgeable, telling us the history behind them and talking us through each step of making the terrarium. There was a great choice of materials for us to make them unique, and the prosecco was great too! Would highly recommend this class :)
review
Oyvind - September 30th
Great workshop! So much fun, ended up with a fab terrarium to take home and learned a lot too. We've tried other workshops were everything is very 'measured' - it says's one glass of prosecco, so you get one glass, class finishing on the exact time. But here class overran by 45 minutes because everyone were having so much fun and wanted to take photos etc in the end, everyone got several fill ups on prosecco, no limit on how many plants or items you wanted in your terrarium. Ben and Darren knows a lot about plants, have a lovely home/studio and created a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend the Botanical Boys to anyone who wants to try something new!

Peu - September 29th

We had a really great time at this class. Ben and Darren were lovely and made the experience fantastic - great hosts and lots of knowledge. I would definitely recommend doing this class and will be booking again!
review
Simone - September 17th
I was happy with the terrarium we created during the workshop, and overall it was a good experience. I would have liked things to kick off a bit more quickly, though, with less of an introduction of the history of the workshop/brand, and also had a bit more conversation at the end about other techniques for making terrariums/materials and ideas for doing them at home.

Darren and Ben were great. We loved the history lesson and the teaching. Taking home our terrarium we had huge smiles on our faces. Thanks Botanical boys!

review
Lucy - August 9th
Darren and Ben were so friendly and welcoming into their beautifully decorated flat in east London. Darren was so knowledgeable and extremely patient when guiding us through the steps. I am not typically a creative person but I found it really inspiring and actually left with a terrarium I was proud of. Would strongly recommend going as it really was a relaxing and enjoyable couple of hours with endless glasses of prosecco and a terrarium that you get to take home, what more could you want!!

review
Riccardo - August 1st
Had a thoroughly good time. Really liked that once you were taught the basics and shown what to do, the guys gave you plenty of time to do your own thing. Also amazing that a room of strangers felt like friends by the time I left.

We had a magnificent time at the workshop. I was really worried that I wouldn't be any "good", but we were led through the process and came away with terrariums that we love. Very therapeutic!

review
Janine - June 13th
What a fantastic way to spend a few hours. The Botanical Boys were excellent hosts welcoming us into their home. Some people may feel uncomfortable with this but for us this made the experience more personal and relaxed . Being in a small group meant that there was great opportunity for interaction between the boys and guests. It was educational, fun and very therapeutic and best of all we came away with our own terrarium creations. No previous experience or creative talent required just go with the flow. This was booked as a birthday surprise. I’m definitely going again with my friends as my enthusing has been contagious. I highly recommend the Botanical Boys experience.
review
Georgina - June 10th

Hattie - May 5th
SO MUCH FUN! This was our first obby experience and what a great one it was - it was informative, friendly, fun, and we came away with sonething which will hopefully last a good long time. Just the two of us in the class, and Darren and Ben were fab. Loved it and would fully recommend - even my boyfriend, who is not normally the creative type, said it was the best Friday night he’d had in years!

We had a fantastic evening with the Botanical Boys learning about and building our own terrariums. Amazing working space with so much inspiration from the terrariums around the room and expert advice from the boys. Loved it and think everyone should try it, it's so relaxing and you have a beautiful unique ecosystem at the end. Thank you boys :)

Emma - March 17th
This was a great way to spend a Friday evening. We not only got to build terrariums, but were also taught how to do it ourselves in the future. I'd definitely do more events with the Botanical Boys in the future 🙂

review
Izzie - January 30th
I can't recommend this class enough. I'm a big obby fan and I have been to some great classes, but this has by far been my favourite experience. My sister and I were lucky enough to be the only ones in our session, and Darren and Ben made us feel so welcome in their studio. Darren's excellent reaching gave us the perfect amount of knowledge to confidently build a really unique terrarium each. There was a huge variety of materials for us to work with and we were told all about the fascinating history of the art of terrarium making. The prosecco was also a wonderful touch! The Eco-system jar we came away with was absolutely beautiful, I've already received so many compliments on it. Will definitely be creating some more! Thank you Botanical Boys!

Alexia - January 23rd
I gave this to someone as a Christmas present and had a great time making two lovely Terrariums. It was very informational but also relaxing and we were very well received by the Botanical Boys, I would definitely recommend this.
review
Tracy - December 3rd
It’s not every class that lets you create your very own world! I loved every second of this class. Darren and Ben were very welcoming and told us just enough about the history of terrariums and gave lots of inspiration on how to create our own. My jar is thriving and I’ve been telling everyone how much I loved this.
