About your host, Botanical Boys
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 and their ability to be used in many structural forms, as with their sculpted Japanese and formal topiary English garden that led to a passion for creating designs on a smaller scale using air plants, cacti, succulents and a range of mosses creating beautiful terrariums.
Their love for plants and terrariums is infectious and people who join them on their workshops not only make a beautiful terrarium, but are taught about all the natural elements involved as well as provided aftercare instruction.
All equipment, glass, plants, decorative items, hot, cold and drinks included.
