After 17 years trading in Norfolk, Urban Jungle Plant Nursery and Cafe opened its doors in August 2017 at its new sister location in Beccles, Suffolk.
Plants, plants and yet more beautiful plants
Urban Jungle is a unique plant shopping experience; very different to other garden centres with a beautiful, quirky and inspirational shop floor dominated by stunning plants, and new for 2019 – Mediterranean style planting.
Large garden centres may have diversified from their core but at Urban Jungle it really is the plants that do the talking. Lose yourself amongst the olive trees, climbers, perennials, grasses, ferns, cacti and succulents to name just a few.
The Med comes to Suffolk
The brief was to create a Mediterranean style garden to inspire our customers, showcase our range of plants and improve the experience for our outdoor diners whilst complimenting the unique micro-climate our Beccles Nursery resides.
We’ve created 5 large raised beds with Derbyshire stone, planted with architectural and colourful Mediterranean-style plants, with adjacent Cafe seating. The beds stretch 70m – the whole length of the nursery, and each bed can be viewed from all 4 sides.
The Cactus House
Tucked away within the Nursery is our very own Cactus House.
This little cubby-hole is home to hundreds of spikey treasures, with shelves chock-full of beautiful and unusual cacti and succulents from the very teeny tiny, to medium, large and monstrous.
The Cafe at Urban Jungle
The Cafe at Urban Jungle completes the experience for visitors with vibrant, Bohemian surroundings, and an eclectic mix of cosy furniture with each seating area totally embraced by exotic plants.
It provides a place to socialise and relax, leaving you feeling inspired and refreshed. The cosy tables surrounded by leaves provide the perfect hide-away for customers looking for somewhere truly unique to enjoy brunch, lunch, your own private party or just coffee and cake with friends.
Dine in the Cafe as part of your visit, and really experience the Jungle in full. Urban Jungle is also available for exclusive hire. Talk to us about your wedding, birthday, party or special event today.
