Roots was born to create a connection between the great growers of this country and its garden loving citizens...
... as part of that, we want to show you the great work that these plant professionals do. We want to show you all of the love, sweat and tears that go into raising every single one of these little sweethearts. Hopefully you'll enjoy seeing more of that journey than ever before, just like we do.
Roots was set up by two long time garden buyers, Alex and Ian, who spent years going from nursery to nursery, marvelling at the hard work, skill and expertise that the UK's horticulturalists brim with.
They'd talk to us with such pride and such knowledge about their plants that you couldn't help but be infected with their enthusiasm. It added a whole new dimension to the already joyous experience of plant buying and one day we realised that with a bit of thought, we could open that up to everyone.
That is when we set about building a website that could bring you along with us. As much as possible we want a click on Roots to feel like a trip around a nursery; almost as if you were there with the grower, covered in mud and beaming with pride as they show you their plants, answer all your questions and gives you advice you didn't even know you needed!
