Plants don’t just look pretty indoors or out – they also clean the air and add to the general well-being of any space they occupy.
One of our nurseries – Amulree Exotics – is at this year’s Hampton Court Flower Show and their garden was featured on Monday night’s highlights episode on BBC1.
The thing I love about the tropical plants is just the effect that it gives you – the big leaves, the spiky leaves, it takes you to a different country and to a different time.
Amulree Exotics’ Simon Grindley together with garden designer Kevin Scales created a garden called ‘Don’t be afraid of big leaves and monster plants’ filled with exotic plants to showcase that even big-leaved exotic plants can be used in the smallest spaces.
There’s so many amazing plants out there that we weren’t growing here at the time so I felt it was my job to get out there and get ’em and bring ’em in.
