We are Ben and Daz of The Botanical Boys and began our journey in 2009 when we took over a terraced garden in London Fields with a Japanese & formal English segments. Having no gardening experience prior, we really got stuck in and become members of the National Garden Scheme and opened up the space to the public for charity every year. We 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 our sculpted Japanese and formal topiary English garden that led to a passion for creating designs on a smaller scale using air plants, cacti and succulents.
Our love for gardens and plants constantly grows, and we strongly believe that gardening provides happiness in life, whether it’s outdoors with your wellies on getting wet, or bringing a piece of the outdoor world indoors and turning it into a piece of botanical wonder to enjoy year round.
Plants are good for your health, they make you smile, they make you feel good.
