Urban Jungle plant nursery began in 2001 by Malcolm Browne and Elizabeth Browne as the antidote to the traditional Garden Centre. At Urban Jungle we love plants. We love gardens. What’s more, we love gardening too. Now that might seem like we’re stating the obvious but like many people we were becoming disillusioned by the ‘garden centre’ experience. A visit to a large garden centre might leave you searching for the ever diminishing plant sales area after you’ve fought your way through the greetings cards, slippers, carpets and cuddly toys. At Urban Jungle it’s all about plants and gardening.
We aim to provide plants, plants and yet more beautiful plants, creatively displayed in a garden setting. We are totally immersed in all things planty.
Our friendly and helpful staff are trained horticulturalists and between us we have a wealth of plant knowledge to share. We don’t claim to know everything – that’s impossible but we like to think that we’re on a lifelong gardening journey. If we can’t answer your questions we’ll find someone who can.
Our aim is to help you make informed plant choices and we like to think that we can offer you that something a little special to make your garden unique.
Visitors often tell us that our nursery is the most beautiful they’ve ever seen and that our range of plants is outstanding. We hope so because plants and gardens are our life and our passion.
We also supply plants by mail order and have been doing so for over a decade. We take infinite care in packaging our plants, turning the boxes upside down and shaking them to make sure everything is snug and tightly cocooned in the box before the journey to their new home. It’s a labour of love and we’ve become pretty good at it.
We care for the environment and nature and are making big changes to the way we run our nursery. We use no chemical pesticides and we use only organic fertilizers in our gardens. We hope to be using organic feed for our nursery stock soon.
