Looking for the best plant shops in London? Here’s 5 beautiful plant shops in London worth visiting — from a Londoner with a green thumb. Enjoy!
There’s nothing like the feeling of coming home with a fresh plant or two. Whether you’re a local with a newly found green thumb or looking to add a plant shop to your trip — here’s 5 beautiful plant shops in London worth the visit.
1. Prick LDN
492 Kingsland Rd, Dalston, London E8 4AE
London’s first (yes first) boutique for cacti and succulents, and one of my favorite plant shops in London — satisfy your green thumb at Prick.
Founded by Gynelle Leon — who took her myriad of experiences as an award-winning photographer, finance professional, and world traveler and turned into a business (including a stunt to Marrakech that made her fall in love with the uniqueness of cacti and succulents) — this plant shop is home to dozens of beautiful and exotic plants, sourced lovingly from across the UK and Europe.
Closest Station: Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland
2. Petersham Nursery
Church Lane, Richmond, TW10 7AB.
If there were ever a place for plant lovers, this is it. A lifestyle shop and plant nursery with locations dotted around the city (although the original beauty is in Richmond) Petersham Nursery will have all your plant needs beautifully sorted.
Between the cacti, pergolas, foxgloves and hydrangeas — all roofed under their greenhouses (which are an experience in itself) you’ll be spoilt for choices.
If you don’t feel like journeying all the way South, you can visit their lovely sister brand in Covent Garden (31 King St, Covent Garden, London WC2E 8JD).
Closest Station: Richmond
3. Conservatory Archives
493-495 Hackney Road, E2 9ED
Not to be dramatic, but walking inside the Conservatory Archives is literally like stepping into the Amazon.
Okay, that was dramatic. But out of all plant shops in London, this one is sure to leave you anything but empty handed. Nestled in Hackney you can also spend a beautiful day in East London — after you’re done eye googling all the greenery.
Closest Station: Cambridge Heath, Bethnal Green
4. Camden Garden Centre
2 Barker Drive, St Pancras Way, NW1 0JW
An impressive garden housing nearly every plant in London it seems — Camden Garden Centre can’t be missed.
One of the largest plant shops in London, Camden Garden Centre is dedicated to quality— with all the greenery changed out weekly. They also employ Londoners getting back on their feet, so every purchase is helping a good cause too.
Closest Station: Camden Town
5. Grace & Thorn
312 Hackney Rd, Bethnal Green, London E2 7SJ
Certified ‘rule breaking florists’ Grace & Thorn is far from your ordinary plant shop. Between shirtless plant pots and their (insanely useful) book ‘How Not to Kill Your Plants’, not to mention masterclasses to help you become a planting pro — this tropical plant shop is well worth the visit.
Closest Station: Hoxton, Bethnal Green
Bonus: Peng Succulents
5B Greenwich Market, Greenwich Peninsula, London SE10 9HZ
Although it’s just a stall, I have to mention Peng Succulents. I stumbled on Peng Succulents at a day in Greenwich Market and it saved my life! I was looking for a Christmas gift with a personal touch and this quirky plant shop came right on time.
With each succulent holding a distinct character and handmade pots to match — Peng Succulents is one of the best plant shops in London for a getting a little green spruce up your space.
