How to summarise Hortus? Real gardens, real people. real lives. Serious style and long-term commitment.

One day you’ll simply want a choice plant with buds bursting to brighten your border; to add immediate wow to your outdoor room; or perhaps to give to a friend as a thank-you present in beautiful wrapping.

Another time perhaps a potted orchid as a personal extravagance, a picnic blanket, a book or two, antique glass bell cloches, sophisticated sculpture or craft-work, a suite of furniture the colour and size of your choice.
