Plants By There was founded by the talented James Whiting, a botanical stylist, consultant and green fingered seller of gorgeous peat-free houseplants and retro sustainable pots and accessories. The peat-free soils used in PBT's plants are much better for the environment, and help preserve precious carbon-absorbing peat bogs and the habitats they house. Turn your pad into a groovy houseplant jungle 🕺🌴
This won't be the last time you hear us talking about Plants By There. We have a SUPER exciting collab coming up so watch this space!
