About Grace and Thorn
When I opened Grace & Thorn in 2011, I was tired of seeing uninspiring rows of houseplants in plastic brown pots next to flowers forced into tight bouquets struggling to breathe, so I decided to do my own thing and bring out the best in plants, ready for their next home and encourage flowers to dance and sing! Since then my philosophy has been simple. Grace and Thorn helps people to see plants in a different way.
As a child growing up on a London Estate, it was the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree in the front room of my Grandparents home that had me mesmerised. The fact that the tree existed within the walls of a house, not in a park, made this a specimen of awe and wonder for a city child.
The Fig tree was, of course, my first baby, but my garden has since grown, offering to give anyone within urban dwellings a chance to start plant stories of their own.
