Great session, very interesting and I love my terrarium
Kate Hearn - April 26th
Danny was fabulous. So knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The course was practical and the end result was great - I really feel like I came away with the skills to build my own. What I really enjoyed was the history lesson at the beginning. I will be recommending this course to friends and family

A lovely class and a perfect gift for someone. Mine was a Mother’s Day gift. I really enjoyed learning and creating my fabulous terrarium which is now way more meaningful than just buying one off the shelf. Thanks so much

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…

This was a brilliant class. Informative and fun, with a very lovely terrarium at the end of it! This is the second class I've done with them, and I thoroughly enjoyed it both times.
Chris - March 8th
Host was entertaining and friendly, the class was great and my terrarium looks amazing!
Nathalie Pearce - March 2nd
Great lockdown activity and i'm sure would be even better in person. Will recommend to friends :)
Aradhana Mukherjee - March 1st
The teacher was really helpful and friendly and encouraging. We also received all the elements of the kit which was helpful as we know others who did not. We were told it was a 2 hour workshop but only ended up being one which was not an issue in itself but a little pricey for 1 hour plus kit and postage. But the lesson itself and the end result was very fun and pleasing ! looks lovely ! thanks

I really enjoyed the way Danny presented the information and led the class. I learnt plenty of interesting things and had great fun. Would love to do it again sometime and recommend to others!

Great materials provided and a great instructor- very patient and informative.
Robyn-Lee - February 11th
A really lovely at home class - perfect weekend activity! We had so much fun making the terrarium and very happy with the end result. I would 100% recommend this workshop to friends & family (I already have!).
Sophie - February 8th
The class was really interesting - loved hearing a little about the history of the Botanical boys & how terrariums have evolved! Material kit was great with more than enough included (soil, plants, etc) - in fact I had enough to make myself an additional mini terrarium with the remaining materials. Would recommend to anyone who wants a chill way to spend an afternoon, especially as the end product is rewarding but low maintenance!
Hazel - February 7th
An enjoyable and absorbing session . All arrangements from booking, delivery of materials and Zoom link were excellent. Friendly and informative teaching. Thrilled with the result which is still looking good!
Warwick - February 2nd
Loved this class - it was such a creative , mindful and relaxing way to spend a Sunday in lockdown with not much else to do. Definitely recommend this - teacher was great and the group was small but engaging and fun. Try it!
Sally - January 31st
This class was amazing and the kit supplied was very high quality. Our teacher, Danny, was absolutely lovely and the whole family (age 10 to 77) enjoyed the class enormously. Thanks guys!!
Eliane - January 31st
Great materials, informative and relaxing experience
Shona - January 23rd
great class. Did online, kit arrived in good time, nice to have some history too. loved getting hands into the soil, moss etc. very grounding. Clear and friendly teacher, and lovely terrarium at the end of it!
Heather - January 21st
Really enjoyable class. The time flew by and I learnt so much! I have recommended the class to friends. I now have a new hobby.
Claire - January 17th
An engaging workshop delivered with real sensitivity to the current times. Very mindful and gentle to meet with a group online and learn about the background and history of terrariums before starting. It was also great to hear how the Botanical Boys started and what they do. It was fun to see how differently we all made our terrariums and hear everyone's backstory. Thank you so much for a great online class - the quality of the items delivered and the teaching was so high. Really delighted.
Melanie - November 24th
I loved the course. The teacher was very friendly, informative, clear and positively engaged with everyone to make sure they were involved and following along. All the materials received from the Botanical Boys were well packaged and wonderful quality and I am delighted with my finished terrarium!
Rose - November 22nd
I got this as a birthday gift for a friend and we both loved it! The class itself was super fun and refreshing, and the teacher Danny was great. He was really clear and supportive, answering any questions and checking how we were getting along. He was also really funny and nice and made the class loads of fun. Plus the plants and the terrarium itself looks great! The plants and terrarium kit was delivered on time and in great condition and really timely. I had some questions about the delivery and the kit itself before the class and the Botanical Boys were really helpful and responsive to all of my queries. Definitely try this out! I will definitely check out their store in Kings Cross once lockdown is over. Thanks for a great class! Rose
Ruth - July 30th
The terrarium class with Darren was excellent. We learnt about the history of plants in a glass bottle/container, how to build our bell jar gardens and the conditions needed to keep it at its best. It was a lot of fun and Darren is good at getting people relaxed and interested. I did an online class but now the in-workshop classes are back too. All best to Botanical Boys and their enterprise.
Ana - July 26th
I had an amazing time during class. The instructor was super patient and all students were able to complete their Terrariums during the time we had. I also loved the surprise he sent :) I'd definitely do it again!
Isabella - June 25th
The class was very insightful and I got such a cute terrarium with the help of the botanical boys! They give fantastic tips and the class overall was really lovely!
Neha - June 16th
Excellent class, enjoyed it. Learnt a lot Thanks Darren
Mark - June 15th
Darren was very friendly and cheery and answered questions well. its not the easiest class to do on zoom but think we managed!
Sheena - May 20th
A fantastic creative class which didn't loose anything by being online - you sometimes had to show the camera as opposed to the tutor coming over and looking as he would have done normally, but that worked well. The tutor was great - really enthusiastic and provided lots of history as a bonus. I did it with my son and we both loved it and were delighted with the result, which was much more professional than either of us expected.
Kleber - May 16th
Amazing experience
Sam - May 12th
Thoroughly enjoyable. Lovely to also learn a little about the history behind the terrarium. Lots of tips and tricks for caring for the terrarium and detailed explanation of the layers required. Thanks again!
Howard - May 12th
We thoroughly enjoyed our class, Darren made us feel confident and comfortable, the products were of great standard and we were delighted with the end results! Thank you so much for a lovely Saturday early afternoon. We'll be back 😊
Jessica - May 10th
I was disappointed that the in person class had to be cancelled, but this online version was excellent! Al the resources were sent out well in advance and the online session was very informative and enjoyable. Really recommend!
Jane - May 9th
What a wonderful online workshop! Thoroughly enjoyed it and came away with a fantastic terrarium thanks to the tips and inspiration from Darren. We did this as a group of three friends who wanted to still do something together and all had so much fun. The kits came quickly and contained everything we needed to take part in the session but it was also good seeing what everyone else was making with theirs as there are different kits available. Huge thanks and will absolutely be back for another one.
Leanne - April 30th
Great class with a fantastic teacher who really inspired me to want to reconnect with nature and grow many more plants!! I feel so pleased with my creation and so inspired every time I look at my terrarium, I will certainly be doing more of their classes, Darren mentioned they are thinking of doing an indoor plant, herb class to be more self sustainable without a garden and I am 100% needing that class in my life!! Originally I bought this online class as a Mother's Day gift for my mum but it actually made a huge impact on me as well, thank you!
Aida - April 29th
My nephew and I really enjoyed the class! Instructions were good and easy to follow and we received everything we needed in advance of the class. The end result was beautiful. A fun activity to do in isolation!
Yvonne - April 29th
My sister and I had a brilliant time creating our terrariums. It was a great way to spend remote quality time with each other during the lockdown! The (plentiful) materials all arrived well-wrapped up ahead of the class. Darren was a very friendly, knowledgeable and creative tutor, highly recommend his classes. We both love our finished terrariums, they are such a beautiful way to bring the outside indoors.
Irene - April 29th
I fully recommended the Botanical boys online terrarium class. It was fun, creative, educational, brings nature into your home and helps take your mind away thinking about the current circumstances we are in. It's also a great idea for a birthday gift where you can have a joint online session with friends and family as I did with this particular class.
Katie - April 29th
This class was wonderful, not only do I now have a beautiful terrarium that I can display in my home as something I have made, but I also learned a lot about plant keeping and the history of terrariums which was a real bonus!
Max - April 29th
I had a wonderful time and now I also have a wonderful terrarium at home. Thanks Botanical boys!
Tom - April 27th
An absolutely fantastic experience that was a welcome distraction during this time of uncertainty. Darren was a great teacher and threw in some super interesting facts about the history of Terrariums! Thanks so much Darren :)
Gemma - April 4th
Highly recommend! I had wanted to sign up for a botanical boys workshop for a while and when I saw they were offering online workshops I was intrigued. The kit arrived smoothly and was packed with everything I needed for the lesson. The lesson itself was informative, fun and relaxing too! As it was via zoom it was great to see the other participants and teacher; it was just like being there. Highly recommend. If you’re thinking about doing it, just sign up and go for it!
Pam - April 1st
Loved this! Of course we were gutted that the face to face workshop had to be canceled but the online class was brilliant! Darren packed and sent kits to us and we built our own bit of paradise at home. The virtual workshop worked really well. Throughly enjoyed the workshop and have already decided that I'd defo do it again! Thank you Botanical Bros for making a very stressful time a little joyous!
