Using plants to escape the stresses of everyday life

Emily Lawlor from Happy Houseplants

Founded in 2018 by Emily and Mark, Happy Houseplants aims to create urban jungles – small spaces of calm to help you escape the everyday stresses of life. They sell beautiful indoor plants and have collaborated with some of the UK’s leading homeware brands and influencers.

Emily and Mark share a flair and passion for plant styling and offer advice for bringing plants into all environments such as homes, workplaces, restaurants, hotels and retail spaces. They have a simple philosophy – they only buy plants they love.

Every plant they sell is handpicked and has its own story and charm.

It’s important to Happy Houseplants to ensure plant owners, both new and existing, remain delighted with their plants and so they provide all the knowledge and guidance necessary to help the plant settle into its new home.

Plants need a little TLC too!

Sarah Gerrard Jones from Happy Houseplants

Author, writer and houseplant lover Sarah Gerrard-Jones firmly believes that every plant deserves a happy life. For years she’s been rescuing plants destined for the bin and documenting their recovery to show that, with a little extra care, these plants will flourish and thrive.

In 2021, Sarah was a finalist in the Garden Media Guild’s Social Media Influencer of the Year award. Sarah has a great range of broadcast and print appearances including BBC Gardeners’ World and The Times.

Sarah’s brand-new book The Plant Rescuer: The Book Your Houseplants Want You to Read was published in April 2022.

Making imperfect plants perfect again

This is not the first time that Happy Houseplants and The Plant Rescuer have collaborated, they are the founders of the Plant Rescue Box Initiative – a scheme which encourages people to buy imperfect plants that would otherwise be thrown away.

The Plant Clinic

We live in a throwaway society where it’s easier and quicker to replace rather than repair. A culture obsessed with perfection leads to millions of healthy plants being discarded.

The Plant Clinic will offer an interactive space for people to learn how to better care for their plants through education and encouragement.

Designers Mark, Emily and Sarah explain: “Nature is being binned because it doesn’t meet our impossibly high standards or ideals.”

“We want to create a space to show gratitude to plants, a place where we can share knowledge about plant care and help save them from being binned.”

The Plant Clinic will bring together independent businesses and social media influencers who will create ‘treatment stations’ for indoor plants including:

  • Steam Room: A large, humid terrarium created by Ben of @worcesterterrariums
  • Jacuzzi: Propagation vases with added bubbles of oxygen to help cuttings grow
  • Soil Bar: Bespoke potting mixes (an opportunity to get your hands dirty!)
  • Juice Bar: Providing plants with nutrients to aid photosynthesis
  • Solarium: Grow lights for our plants to bask under.
