We regularly frequent a few local hotspots for many of our house plants. Since discovering From Victoria (Needlemakers, Lewes) Birds cant stay away and the beauties pictured below are amongst many of her adopted babies from there! How adorable are those delicate leaves on the Sophora?!

Other regular haunts of ours are Spiderplant  and Geo-Fleur, both lovely shops run by lovely people!

Another noteworthy source if you are also a plant lover is Lobster and Swan, the lovely lady behind this blog produces beautiful photo after beautiful photo of her urban garden – major plant envy and often featuring her adorable cat! We highly recommend heading over and checking out her blog or instagram feed!

Lobster and Swan has also started a hashtag – #botanicalpickmeup and you can join in the fun too by sharing your favourite little green friends!
