Hi, I'm Emma, but most people call me Plantmama!

Plants and nature have always been a big part of my life and sharing my love of greenery is a real passion of mine, so at the beginning of 2020, I turned my indoor jungle and 'crazy plant lady' blog into a small business!

Aimed at making houseplants easier to understand and accessible, I specialise primarily in easy-care, air-purifying plants and offer a range of fun, engaging care classes and workshops.

I can't wait to help you grow your own indoor jungle!

Great session with all materials provided. Tutor was great and explained not only how to construct but information on aftercare. Enjoyable and value for money. Thanks Emma.

Really enjoyed the class, everything was well explained and there was lots of variety in the plants etc. for you to choose from and plenty to round. If you’re interested in plants or simply want to try something a bit different then I’d thoroughly recommend giving this a go!

I had a brilliant time at the closed terrarium workshop! It was in a lovely inspiring space and I learned a lot about how to make and look after my little eco system. Such a friendly and welcoming experience for a novice plant lover! Would highly recommend and may buy as a gift for my friends and family. It would be great for a group!

The class was very informative, clearly explained and shown what to do. The girl doing the workshop was very friendly and happy to help with any queries. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Everything we needed was provided and clear instructions on how to care for the terrarium afterwards. I would thoroughly recommend this workshop to any plant lover.

Absolutely loved the class as did my girlfriend and mum. The tutor was super friendly and knowledgeable and a great help throughout. Would 100% recommend. Would love to attend more in-depth and advanced terrarium workshops should they come around!

Booked a private class for a friends hen party and it was brilliant! Emma was lovely, and really informative during the class and we were given plenty of advice for after care too. We had a mixture of plant lovers and beginners in the class so would highly recommend the workshop for both. Thanks to Emma, Andy and the wee one for their hospitality, we all had an amazing time!

It was a lovely afternoon doing the closed top terrarium workshop. Emma was so welcoming and the class was really informative and interesting. The shop has a lovely atmosphere and very calming and welcoming.
All the tools and plants etc were provided to make the terrarium and with Emma’s guidance and advice I made a beautiful terrarium. I love it and so pleased with it! Thank you for an excellent afternoon and beautiful terrarium

Venue was great, being surrounded by plants and lots of terrarium examples. Andy was extremely lovely and knowledgeable. My friends and I all had an amazing experience and left the class extremely happy with our new terrariums!

Anton Miguel May 2023

This was a great class. I had all my questions answered and learned everything I needed (and more) to make my own closed top terrariums. The teacher was very helpful and knowledgeable, the venue was great and the materials provided were excellent, a sizeable good quality jar and great looking plants. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

This was a wonderful workshop! Our instructor was lovely and really knowledgeable. There was a great selection of plants to use in the terrarium, plenty of advice on how to display them and keep them healthy too. Location is great either for public transport or driving, really recommend this!
