A big THANK YOU to ‘ginger’ Michael for generously and patiently teaching us. The workshop was a memory making afternoon for my family. We loved learning about terrariums; their history, how to make them, and care for these jars of joy.

What an incredible afternoon out! I was gifted a terrarium creation workshop by a couple of my friends, and it was so much fun. As the only solo in a group of groups, not once did I feel out of place. Michael was a wonderful host, and was brilliant with both kids and adults alike. I am thrilled with my terrarium and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thanks boys! x

Your Teacher

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…

Awesome experience - had a lot of fun with our instructor - love the terrariums we created :)
undefined - 12 May 2024
Incredible workshop! We both had a lovely time, and really appreciated learning about the history behind terrariums as well. I liked that the host let us feel our way through building the jar out, and didn't make us feel like we were being told what to do. Super friendly, and just a great workshop all together. Highly recommended!
Samantha Dorney-Smith - 30 April 2024
Excellent. Well facilitated, great kit provided, great product to take home at the end. Took myself and my 13 year old boy and we loved it.
Siddharth Shah - 29 April 2024
Absolutely fantastic session! Highly recommend.

Great experience for a couple!
Meredith Maxwell - 28 April 2024
We had a brilliant time. I booked it for a birthday present and a group of 4 of us went. It was a 2 hour workshop. At the end I left feeling like I’d learnt something new and that it was a really enjoyable. Quite often you feel that ‘experiences’ can be really expensive with no substance and a bit of a waste of time but not in this case. I also really liked that it was the sort of thing that had universal appeal and could enjoy and get a lot out of it. I would not hesitate in recommending this to others.

Conor O Keeffe - 6 March 2024
Super fun experience - expertly led, loved the history, and really proud of our amazing terrerium creation. Could not reccommend more!
Juliet Maxted - 4 March 2024
Really fun workshop! The atmosphere was great and the instructions were really clear. You get a good choice of plants to use and a big jar. I think it’s good value for money compared to some of the other options I was looking at for similar workshops
Noreen Culleton - 3 March 2024
'Ginger Michael' was fantastic, very knowledgeable, really fun and beautiful quality of everything! Really enjoyed it- thank you.
Emily Waldeck - 19 February 2024

Elizabeth Seward - 17 February 2024
A fun evening workshop with great teachers. I love my terrarium and it’s the easiest houseplant to keep alive!
Gosia Bliska - 31 January 2024
Fun and informative experience
Chloë Adams - 29 January 2024
Mostly enjoyable experience but I feel for how much the class was there were certain things that let it down. 1. The chairs to sit on are wooden planks and incredibly uncomfortable 2. We preordered Prosecco (+£20) and when I reminded the class leader he hurriedly rung a colleague who ran to Waitrose and picked up a bottle of cava. Very unprofessional.
Peter Symons - 28 January 2024
What a brilliant afternoon. I'll admit, my first impressions on sitting down were "what in the east London is going on here", but very quickly I was having the best time. Michael was amazing, great fun and super informative. I didn't think I'd learn so much about terrariums and history. I'd recommend this to everyone and anyone, bloody great!
Valia Adamopoulou - 27 January 2024
Great experience, and relaxing. Met some nice people and learned the history behind the beautiful terrariums!! Recommend it for anyone and at any time.
Kevin Barretto - 22 January 2024
Highly recommended. I gave this experience as a gift for my partner and we both loved it.
Fiona Luong - 22 January 2024
Very fun and creative workshop with plenty of materials (plant, soil, stones) to choose from. Ginger Michael, our host, was very knowledgeable, attentive and funny! Made and took away a perfect terrarium! Small groups size (max 10) was perfect.
Tom Gedye - 18 January 2024
A really enjoyable experience. Michael led an entertaining and informative session - beautiful setting and a great atmosphere. We love our terrariums!
Zohra Vermani - 17 January 2024

Jill Young - 5 November 2023
Fun time very knowledgeable tutor thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Aadam Anwar - 9 October 2023
Great class! Everything provided and all in good condition- plants were healthy and clearly the staff care for them very well. Nice lesson in history of terrariums included as well as a good explanation of how to assemble and care for the terrarium. Apart from the instructor speaking a little too quietly for our liking (at times quite difficult to hear), there were no other concerns or complaints. Would not hesitate to recommend the workshop to others!
Victor Adebowale - 25 September 2023
A lovely afternoon spent creating a natural ecosystem in a bottle with some history intriguing stories and charm from the lovely Micheal ..enjoyed my course and my Terrarium
Pragna Prabhudev - 25 September 2023
The workshop with Botanical boys was a great experience, there was good engagement and the teacher was fun and cordial. I would have liked some nice colored plants for my terrarium than normal ivy like plants. Hopefully this is something that botanical boys team can take on board for the future !
Geneva Stanton - 24 September 2023
Fantastic. Super fun and my plants are still healthy!
Maddy Newman - 17 September 2023
Really fun session, learnt lots about the history of terrariums and left with a lovely (and healthy) terrarium! Would definitely recommend and do the workshop again
Esme Wilson - 4 September 2023
The class was so fun, interesting and interactive; I definitely learnt a lot and the terrarium-making was broken down into simple easy steps and I am so delighted at the overall result, they all looked beautiful! So fun and would recommend to anyone :)
Lenny Ganbar - 3 September 2023
Loved it!
Jane Sharpe - 21 August 2023
Fabulous experience, Ginger Mike was very knowledgeable and very amusing. We were on a mini hen party and he made the bride to be feel very special. Highly recommended
Jane Powell - 14 August 2023
An unusual gift from the children and what a fantastic afternoon creating our own terrarium with the knowledgeable and charming Michael our host and tutor who also had an excellent singing voice! Everything is done with care and we bought home terrarium we were so pleased with. Coal drops yard is also a wonderful location to make a day of it. 10 out of 10 for the Botannical boys.
Alexis Reji - 31 July 2023
Michael was such a lovely host and we really enjoyed the work shop for our anniversary. I learnt the history about the terrarium inventor Dr Nathanial Ward, the quiz on history and care guide. We love the complimentary bubble and getting our hands dirty and absorbing some B12. Thank you for a lovely workshop, I would definitely recommend it to others as a group, gift or as an individual.
Maria Anne - 31 July 2023
This workshop was so much fun! Thank you Michael for a great afternoon. I’m going to book it again at the end of August …:)
Jessica Gay Martinez - 25 July 2023
really fun class for the team, lovely product, some great history on plants, highly recommended! Thank you bottanical boys!
Richard Jewitt - 17 July 2023
Thanks Michael for a really interactive and memorable terrarium making workshop! Jelmer and I loved it and we are really happy with our creations :)
Rhys - 9 July 2023
Have been wanting to make a terrarium for months and this class definitely is an amazing, fun and informative way to get into terrarium making. This class is also an amazing date idea!
Ellie Freeden - 9 July 2023
One of the best workshops I’ve ever been to! Host was so fun and made it such a cool experience. We learnt a lot and came home with an amazing terrarium! Highly recommend to anyone
Beatrice Andrews - 26 June 2023
We really enjoyed our class, the leader of the session was really friendly and knowledgeable, the session was engaging, and our terrariums look great :)
Marek Chodurek - 5 June 2023
Absolutely worth the money. I've been twice now and it's a perfect gift experience for a partner, family member, colleague... Anyone. The guys are super friendly and make the whole thing more than soil, stones and bonsais. One of the best bits is they teach you how to keep your terrarium alive and give support if you're not listening. I've been twice, and will probably go back!
Gillian McGaw - 5 June 2023
My daughter and I had a great time at the workshop. Thank you to Michael for making it all so fun and engaging. Who knew that terrariums had such an impact on geopolitical events!
Sagar Varankar - 3 June 2023
Hugely entertaining and informative!
Caitlin - 9 May 2023
Wonderful afternoon with Michael learning about the history of terrariums & getting all the required steps down for building your own! Artistic flair & all round legend host who made the workshop so much fun - highly recommend! :)
Sarah - 8 May 2023
We had a really enjoyable experience and we were very pleased with our end products.
Becca Brock - 2 May 2023
I took my friend for her birthday and we both loved it! We had ginger Micheal and it was never boring, always interesting and so much fun. Our terrariums are still going strong!
Katy Davison - 24 April 2023
Fantastic class. Ginger Michael was amazing and the whole experience was perfect
Jay Ranaweera - 16 April 2023
Awesome experience, would recommend for anyone!
Joanna Downey - 14 April 2023
It was a fun afternoon with ginger Mike (he called himself that) We learnt lots too plus took home our planted up terrarium!
Andrew Cragg - 11 April 2023
A brilliant afternoon spent learning about and making my own terrarium! Michael was funny and put everyone at ease. I would thoroughly recommend this experience!
John - 10 April 2023
Really enjoyed the workshop with Michael! He made the history fun and making your own terrarium possible. Great activity to do as a group, couple or alone, as you are encouraged to mix with others. As a pleasant surprise you have a bottomless glass of prosecco!
Lynn - 4 April 2023
Ginger Michael was great and hilarious! A great way to spend two hours and to bring home something wonderful to look at.
Alana Whitlock - 26 March 2023
This class was excellent! I booked it for my mum as a birthday present and wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was better than we could have imagined. Michael (?) the trainer was absolutely brilliant! He made it so entertaining with his quiz and games, and it meant there was a great atmosphere amongst everyone in the class. We had a really enjoyable evening and love our terrariums. Thank you!
BEATRICE - 26 March 2023
Very nice and enjoyable 2 hours experience. Would totally recommend for a gift or even a date night. Our host Ginger Michael was very nice, we were able to hear him (😊) and he created very welcoming and warm environment. Everyone in the group felt very relaxed and friendly. It was interesting to learn about the history of terrariums and the whole session was very interactive. Keep on going Botanical Boys!
Shirley Pinfold - 26 March 2023
A great experience. Fun as well as a learning experience.
Simran Virk - 22 March 2023
Great experience!! Would highly recommend
Charline Dufour - 20 March 2023
I went to the terrarium class with my mum for her birthday. It was great, chill and very nice! We got lots of guidance and informations about plants and their care. It was really fun I recommend it ☺️
Bhavna Weeks - 15 March 2023
This was a fantastic event and a great way to treat my husband and good friend for their birthdays! It was a brilliant workshop that felt really inclusive for those people who are green-fingered like my friends and also for people like me who have a hard time keeping even the most low-maintenance alive. It felt really relaxing, building up the layers in our jars and I particularly enjoyed the way the history of terrariums was woven into the 2hr session. Over a month on since the visit and our terrariums are still thriving! Thanks once again :D
Jai - 15 March 2023
Great night that was thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my partner. Brilliant workshop leader who was very friendly and informative. Strongly recommend this to any beginners in the plant world or even to those just looking for a good way to spend quality time with friends or family.
Samirah Haujee - 14 March 2023
This was by far one of the best activities I've ever done! It's true what they say about soil being good for your mental health. The setting itself was so beautiful, Michael was a great host and learning about terrariums in a fun way made the afternoon extremely interesting and informative. The various quizzes and games (with prizes!) were a great way to bond with everyone else. I absolutely recommend this to groups and couples alike. And you get to take a great size terrarium back home with you! I will most definitely be back - this time for the upgrade vessels and plants!
Kathy Melotte - 14 March 2023
What a great class. I bought this as a present for my friend for her Birthday and it did not disappoint. The vessels that are included are the perfect size for your first go at terrarium making. There were lots of plants to choose from and also options to upgrade during the class. A special shout out to our instructor Michael for making the class interactive and fun!
Pauline - 13 March 2023
We really enjoyed the terrarium workshop. Darren is a great teacher and his enthusiasm and passion are inspiring. We took the workshop after a long and stressful day and it was so nice to enter the peaceful and tranquil space and focus on something completely different. We left feeling all revitalised - and so happy with our beautiful terrariums! We opted for the standard (small) terrarium which is perfect for our home. Thanks!
Flint Jones - 13 March 2023
It was so fun! My friend and I went and we loved our session with Ginger Michael! At first we felt a bit out of place since we were the youngest (18) but the environment was super friendly and everyone was so nice! The musical number at the end was amazing too :)
Naima Khan - 12 March 2023
This is a better alternative to a dinner and movie. It’s cheaper and I keep my baby plant without the hassle of alimony payments. It maintains itself. How cool is that!
Chris Rogers - 12 March 2023
Brilliant!
Caroline - 6 March 2023
So so so fun!!
Anuja Rai - Duggan - 6 March 2023
Had amazing time. Perfect for couple. I went with my husband as pre birthday gift. Really enjoyed the whole set up, game and the history. We also get to win some plant with lots of fun games. The best part is that you get to design your own terrarium and upgrade plants for additional cost and get to take home. I would highly recommend for couples day out or with your friends or family day out or perfect birthday day out
Nick - 1 March 2023
We had an excellent time - Michael was a brilliant host, very helpful in creating our terrariums and very informative and funny when talking about the history of them! We will be recommending it to our friends and family!
Lisbeth Jones - 26 February 2023
What a wonderful was to spend a couple of hours with family. The instruction was really good and I loved all the additional history and fun facts. Plus now I have a lovely terrarium as a reminder. Thank you
Bradley Begley - 25 February 2023
We loved the class; the facts, history lesson and free Prosecco were fantastic additions. It would have been nice if we were able to dive straight into Terrarium making and have the history lesson weaved into the whole session. We would heartily recommend this class and our Terrariums look amazing thanks to the Botanical Boys’ excellent direction. NB, the dinosaurs were a nice touch.
Vanessa Hayward - 20 February 2023
What can I say? I knew I'd love making a Terrarium but I didn't know I'd enjoy it as much as I did. 'Ginger Michael' was a BRILLIANT host, so knowledgeable, passionate and fun. We laughed, A LOT! There was prosecco too which was an unexpected surprise. I'd highly recommend this to everyone, my friend and I absolutely loved it and out terrariums look amazing!
claudie Salem - 20 February 2023
Great experience and end result, we got prosecco too. Lovely afternoon activity idea in London
Sol Argerich - 20 February 2023
great workshop with Ginger Mike!!!!! Mike made it soooo much fun! Mike guided us through the workshop in a very professional way, he put special attention to each an every one of the participants. The terrariums were amazing! We totally recommend the workshop and Mike!!!
Janet Smith - 19 February 2023
Fantastic afternoon with Michael, learnt about the history of terrariums and we smashed the quiz 😀. We made our terrariums under the guidance of Michael who was very entertaining and made the whole afternoon great fun. Would highly recommend.
Cadi Williams - 12 February 2023
we loved it! amazing gift x
Paula Mateo - 12 February 2023
Had such an enjoyable time making a beautiful terrarium with my daughter. The venue is beautiful and the workshop was simply amazing.
Kathleen Bloomfield - 6 February 2023
The workshop was bought for me as a gift and I loved it! Just the right amount of talk and doing. It was great to hear about the history and theory of terrariums, but there was plenty of time to perfect our arrangements and to ask advice. I went on my own and didn’t feel left out even though most people came in pairs or groups. I would definitely recommend it to other people.
Chris Rogers - 6 February 2023
Was so good! Been to a class with a separate company and this was far superior. Cx
Mishael Downer - 6 February 2023
I thoroughly enjoyed the session. It was educational as well as practical. I plan to attend another session with a bigger Jar. Thanks Darren & Terrian.
Bala - 5 February 2023
It was amazing! Had a wonderful time, thank you !!
Aprille Codinera - 29 January 2023
To say that I enjoyed the class would be an understatement. I couldn't recommend it enough! Darren was very patient with all of us. He did not only guide us through the process of making our terrarium, he also gave us after care tips.
Ash - 29 January 2023
The class was really well put together. Everything was explained clearly and thoughtful, and there was even a little history lesson on how terrariums came to be.
Elissa Gordon - 29 January 2023
Very good, hands on class. You learn a lot about each step of the process and the final terrarium you take home is great value for money!
Kathleen Cusworth - 23 January 2023
Fantastic experience with the terrarium class! Such a great gift that lasts
Benjamin Bayliss - 23 January 2023
Amazing workshop, very happy with my new terrarium and will now be telling all my friends to attend and to learn a little more about the history! Loved it!
Avisha Jaising - 8 January 2023
The workshop was really lovely. Really well paced and relaxing. So excited to have my own little terrarium :)
Elizabeth Aldridge - 12 December 2022
It was a great class and lovely to do something tactile and relaxing with your own terranium to take home at the end. Darren was a great tutor, I learnt a lot. I would recommend this class.
Aida - 6 December 2022
I attended the terrarium introduction workshop at Botanical Boys. I was made to feel really welcome by the really kind tutor Darren as well as all the other workshop attendees as I was on my own. It was one of the most beautiful, creative and immersive learning experiences I have ever had. Relaxing and in a gorgeous environment too that has been thoughtfully designed and laid out. It was also fun and educational and we learnt so much from Darren. I love my new ecosystem and plan to go back after the New Year for Terrarium number two!
Bonnie Vallance - 5 December 2022
Lovely class with lots of learning - history lesson as well as the how tos of terrariumania. Lots of interaction with the host, great value for money.
Francesca Alberigi - 5 December 2022
Michael was so informative and fun. Really lovely experience.
Noora - 22 November 2022
My friend and I had a great first experience with this class—our instructor was informative, engaging and supportive as we navigated the class and did something we’ve never done before! I’ve learned so much more about plants than I ever did and will endeavour to take care of my little creation, and I’ve got to say it really does take you away for the briefest of times from the stresses of life and is a very engaging class. Thank you!
Julia Bradnam - 18 November 2022
Fantastic fun, informative and fabulous location. Loved every second and would highly recommend - added bonus you get to take your work home
Louise Davies - 13 November 2022
Table in BB’s was cramped & difficult to hear the soft voice of the host. Good materials. A large amount of information was provided about the history of terrariums!
Tosin - 13 November 2022
Amazing class! So much fun. Very knowledgeable and funny teacher V much enjoyed the glass(es) of prosecco!
Avi Rooney - 7 November 2022
Just a truly amazing experience. The instructors were so lovely and made us feel at home. The prosecco and juice were a nice touch to the experience. Delighted with what we had created, and I would recommend this to anyone - especially to people with partners!
Emil H. Lauritsen - 5 September 2022
Amazing!
Thea Torriset - 5 September 2022
We had a great time at this event. Super interesting and fun. The host was great, would do another event here.
Deborah Godbold - 8 August 2022
A very relaxed class and very enjoyable. Liked the history intro. The glass of Prosecco to accompany the workshop added to the relaxing vibe. Pleased with the final product.
Louise - 4 July 2022
We had the best time with Michael learning all there is to know and playing fun games. We had a great time making our terrarium and couldn't recommend the class more!
Amy Harvey - 3 July 2022
Had a wonderful workshop, its was lots of fun and educational too! Great for friends, family, couples and work get togethers. Overall fantastic experience and highly recommend it!
roxane hernandez - 3 July 2022
End product is looking good, although care instructions are a bit light and picture of what 'moisture' should look like could help. All the materials were provided and extra figurines were a nice touch. However we could not wait to get our hands dirty, yet the first half of the session was a mostly one-way talk about the brand and some history of terrariums. I believe the same info could have been shared while also starting to build the terrarium. The practical part of the session felt rushed, not allowing time for mistakes. The trainer would have had the time to go check one by one the terrariums and advise each individually on critical points (e.g. over filling, choice of plants etc). I would only advise the workshop for people who have already built terrariums and are only looking for an opportunity to practice. It is convenient that all materials are sourced. The talk did not conduct to a nice atmosphere, felt more like an awkward classroom.
Lucille Geer - 27 June 2022
Me and my 2 sister went to Botanical Boys for one of our 30th birthday presents and we had the best time! Fifi and Cameron led our session and they were very informative, chatty, funny and genuinely interested in what they were teaching/showing us. I highly recommend this to everyone I see. Thank you for a great day!
Sarah Methven - 26 June 2022
Amazing experience with super friendly staff! The terrariums are fantastic and the story behind it all is brilliant! Darren was a great tutor! 100% would attend again! :)
Avery Keyerleber - 13 June 2022
We had such a great time in the workshop. Michael was a highly informed, experience, engaging and entertaining host for my two daughters and me.
Gemma Liu - 12 June 2022
We went as a couple - we had a fun afternoon and Darren was a great host. We would have liked a bit more choice of elements for the terrarium but appreciate the good value given the constraints of the class. The jar is a good size, bigger than we thought. The environment was very friendly, welcome and relaxed so I recommend for people considering going alone too!
glynis - 4 June 2022
Great class. Informative and fun. Cameron was fab. Already got a repeat booked!
Alice Hughes - 30 May 2022
We got the terrarium workshop as a Christmas present and it was such a great Sunday afternoon activity. Darren was such a great teacher and made it so enjoyable, whilst teaching us about the history of botanicals and terrariums too!
Amanda Jones - 30 May 2022
I was given this workshop as a gift, and I really enjoyed it. The venue was comfortable. We were made welcome and it was friendly and informative. The finished product was bigger than I had imagined and very beautiful. A lovely afternoon.
Diane Debiais - 30 May 2022
EXCELLENT! We had so much fun doing this class and learnt some interesting facts about terrarium and plants along the way. Great activity to do with a couple of friends. The shop is gorgeous too! Thank you for having us.
Anna Burdett - 3 May 2022
I bought this class for my niece as her birthday present and she loved it! 2 hours of fun... starting with a short history of Terrariums and then building our own creation layer by layer... very meditative and relaxing. We were also given a free glass of sparkling wine! x Thank you botanical boys!
Karen - 2 May 2022
I booked this last minute for my friends birthday present, and I’m so glad I did. We both had a wonderful couple of hours learning about the history and how to make a terrarium along With a glass of Prosecco. It was just the best thing we have both done and I highly recommend it.
Alison Henry - 3 April 2022
Lovely couple of hours! Real antidote to everything going on ! Good amount of information at the start followed by clear step by step instructions and support. Was very good pace so you never felt left behind or rushed! Will definitely recommend!
Sinem Tunc - 3 April 2022
Such a fun class! Shoutout to Cameron, our host, who gave us an amazing and understanding insight about terrariums and then taught us how to make one. Me and my boyfriend absolutely enjoyed it. Listen to the history cause there’s a pop quiz at the end and they give you a gift. I WON A GINSENG TREE WOOOP WOOP. Overall 10/10 experience. :)

Great course in pleasant atmosphere. Very pleased with the terrarium.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class - Michael was engaging and made the class both informative and fun. I haven't given the class 5 stars as I felt that value for money was slightly off balance. I upgraded to the smaller egg vessel for an extra £30 and seemed to use less materials as the base is so much smaller than the standard class jar size - but then still charged an extra £5 for an asparagus fern to put in istead. But otherwise a good class. Thak you.

Fun, interesting... Michael was a great host!!

Karen Richardson - 3 October 2021
We had a lovely time. Cameron was patient and generous with his advice, and full of fun facts. Really pleased with my first terrarium! Will strongly recommend.
Rachna Kanwar - 3 October 2021
Thank you Cameron for making yesterday a fun evening. I learnt a lot about the history of terrariums, their construction and care. For future ref it would be good to have an idea of the size of jar, even a picture for when people are booking the course. Also, it would be good to have other plants to choose from for an upgrade part from the fern which was beautiful but I think I would've preferred a Ginseng tree. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed the session and wondered if you did a more advanced course.

It was super well organised. A lovely setting. Big Cameron and the other person (who's name I didn't catch) were helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining.

Great Class very relaxing and it gives you the skills to make your terrarium😊
Stephanie Rallison - 15 June 2021
Both my partner and I loved the experience, our two terrariums sit happily in our bookcase. Michael has amazing horticultural knowledge and made the whole experience fun and informative. Don’t let the covid restrictions put you off booking. Temperature checks and hand sanitiser was done, all tools are sterilised, alongside mask wearing during the experience. But once you get your hands stuck in you don’t notice that mask feeling.
Anonymous - 15 June 2021
I booked the class for my partner and my mother and they both thoroughly enjoyed it. They both commented on how the class was both calming and informative and they returned home with stunning terrariums that they're very proud of. I'd highly recommend this class as to gift to someone who enjoys botanicals and a quality product and service. Thank you!

Fiona - 8 November 2020
We utterly loved the terrarium beginners class, and are already planning going back for the advanced one! Our host was super-charismatic and made it so fun. The quality of the plants and equipment was excellent and several weeks on, our terrariums are thriving! Honestly couldn't recommend it enough and have already raved about it to friends, who have already booked!
Jonny - 8 November 2020
Had an awesome experience at this terrarium class. Great vibe from all the team at Botanical Boys and I came a way with a new found connection with nature. Highly recommended!!

Loved the workshop! The team was lovely, very helpful and great teachers. It was a very fun and great experience to learn more about planting and keeping plants alive! I booked this class for me and my two friends as a birthday surprise and we had a blast.
Louise - 3 October 2020
Fun bday gift activity for a friend. Nice planty/workshopy area n people. Was good to get a drink, terrarium history intro, info about terrariums eg the layers needed, care, biology etc. Liked that they "hid" dinosuars around the room that you can add to your terrarium. The plants included (fittonias) were nice but would have been better to have another variety included in the price instead of £5 upgrade choice ie as standard get maybe 2 fittonias in diff colours n a diff plant. Came home with a decent piece thats still alive.
Ellie - 29 September 2020
Really fun, it was great to spend time getting creative, learning about nature.

Wonderful class! I went alone and everyone was so friendly, the teacher Michael was so knowledgable and I left with a beautiful terrarium which is thriving. Would definitely come back to make another.

Sam - 15 August 2020
My partner and I attended a Terrarium Class a few weeks ago after getting the experience for my partners birthday. We were made to wait for the experience due to COVID-19 but it was worth it. Straight from the start we were made to feel welcome and it was fascinating to learn about the history of terrariums, as well as how Botanical Boys got to where they are today. To date, our terrariums look amazing and we hope to get many months out of them. We also got some great tips for looking after plants too, and we’ve already started to see the benefits from some advice! An experience I would definitely recommend to anyone who has A green thumb, or wants to learn more about plants, and it would make a great gift for someone! We will definitely be back! :)
Kate - 7 December 2019
Great fun getting stuck in and using your hands, and in a really relaxed and friendly environment. It’s definitely inspired me to make some more of my own!
Aoife - 7 December 2019

Laura - 30 April 2019
What a lovely class. The Botanical Boys are living out their dream, caring for plants, creating beautiful terrariums and spreading the love. The location was stunning: a tower full to the brim with green life. I'm really pleased with my terrarium. There was tons of choice when it came to things like stones, gravel and decoration, and the plants themselves were healthy and pretty. The green tea on arrival and the Prosecco was a nice touch. I left feeling utterly soothed and pleased with myself by the time I left with my terrarium, and it's doing really well at home. There's plenty of aftercare info available from The Botanical Boys so I'm not worried if anything goes wrong with it; I'll be able to put it right. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the workshop to anybody, whether they're green fingered or not.
Jo - 21 April 2019
SO much fun! The studio was a sight to behold, the Botanical Boys are clearly passionate about all things plants and beauty. Adam was a wonderful teacher, making us all feel at ease and helped us make gorgeous terrariums. We WILL be back!!!
Bekky - 21 April 2019
The workshop was ace, we had a great time! Adam was really friendly and informative, and making the terrarium was relaxing and a lot of fun.

Lovely mothers day gift. Really great workshop, very relaxing and informative. Guided through all the steps and leave with lovely terranium. Also got some prosecco! Thanks very much.
Stella - 14 April 2019
The workshop was brilliant from start to end. The teachers were very warm, knowledgable and created a lovely and relaxed atmosphere. The terrarium intro led us through all the steps to create our very own Terrarium! It was so much more and better than i expected! Thank you guys.
Oliver - 26 March 2019
The class was excellent. The guys who run it are really nice, funny, and know their stuff. Everyone in the class made a great Terrarium and we were allowed to take them home - plus there was prosecco! The only comment I would have for the botanical boys is that they kept showing us weird things they had been given that we could put in our Terrarium, like toy dinosaurs and cocktail flare sticks - maybe reel this in a bit and just let people enjoy the natural aspect of it a bit more. This is a small qualm though, because the class was incredible and I would highly recommend it.
Rosie - 26 March 2019
Really great, fun and informative class with prosecco thrown in to make it the 5 stars it deserves!
Jay - 3 February 2019
We loved this class! It's a really personal affair in The Botanical Boys' dining room, with a small group. Great value and attention to each student.
Zack - 8 January 2019
The class was absolutely fantastic with just the right mix of informative, fun, relaxed and interesting. Came away with a terrarium to be proud of and a desire to create another! Very highly recommended and great teachers/hosts!
Ania - 20 December 2018
Absolutely fantastic class! Our instructor was so informative telling us the history behind the terrariums and explained things really well.

Mili - 12 November 2018
Really great workshop run by Botanical Boys in their amazing flat in Dalston which is full of terrariums and other lovely decorative pieces! I learned so much about terrariums and even made my own to take home that I feel oonfident I can take care of! We were given red bush tea and prosecco during the class too. This is great idea for a gift to someone as it's an experience that can be shared and you get to take something home. I will definitely do one of their other classes!
Ella - 10 September 2018
Really great class. Learned a-lot, and had lots of fun! The Botanical Boys were extremely welcoming, helpful and knowledgable, and also have a beautiful workspace! Would definitely recommend.

Riley - 6 June 2018
When my friends and I signed up for this I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, I had never booked anything through Obby before but I was excited to give it a go. We had an incredible time with the Botanical Boys, Darren and Ben, and cannot recommend their class enough. Being welcomed into their lovely home full of terrarium inspiration, my friends and I had a great time and definitely intend to take another class. Darren was a great instructor who is obviously very knowledgable and incredibly patient while Ben did a great job of making us feel welcome and topping up our prosecco while taking lovely photos of the whole evening. I am really looking forward to my next class!
Eira - 5 June 2018
Cannot recommend enough! The class was such a wonderful experience. Darren was an amazing teacher, the location is beautiful and the atmosphere is both fun and peaceful, there are so many inspiring ingredients available to craft your terrarium with, and you get something special to take home and treasure at the end :) I loved it!
Lisa - 21 May 2018
I killed my last terranium so decided to give this class a go. It was wonderful. Darryl & Ben have an amazing space with so much inspiration & SO many options to play with (including cute little figures to help add some personality). My creation is awesome, I learnt a lot (including sand layering techniques and plant care) and I had so much fun.
Olivia - 14 May 2018
