My introduction to plants goes back to my childhood, which was greatly influenced by my mother and our neighbors who shared a passion for plants. Their love and care for these living organisms rubbed off on me, and I have been cultivating plants in my home ever since. As any avid plant lover would attest, the desire to acquire more plants only grows with time.

However, when my living space reached its capacity, I began to contemplate the idea of opening a plant shop to accommodate my growing collection. At first, it seemed like an unattainable dream, but I decided to give it a shot.

Now, I start each day with a cup of coffee and my Macrorrhiza ‘Giant Elephant Ear’ plant. Owning a plant shop has introduced me to many new species that I had never encountered before, and I have met numerous individuals who share my love for plants.

Taking care of plants is not only therapeutic, but it can also be a remedy for individuals leading busy lives. That is why I invite all plant enthusiasts to visit my Plant World London store. Once you step inside, you will realize that one can never have enough plants.
