What is a Pop-Up Garden..?

A Pop-Up Garden is a temporary garden that you can hire to enhance your event. It’s a package of plants & greenery that we design to your specifications, and then bring to you.

We will help to enrich your event space and make it truly stunning, with the addition of a variety of plants, living green walls (media walls), hanging greenery installations, table decorations, florals, furniture and other hire items.

You will have a Styling consultation with one of our experts, and will then be sent a bespoke quotation, including photos of sample plants, flowers and styling options.

Your Pop-Up Garden can be as simple or as spectacular as you like. We are committed to designing & creating an installation that really brings your ideas to life.

Whether you would like a stunning floral wall as a backdrop for your wedding photographs, a fresh media wall to create a vibrant entrance to your product launch, or a bespoke installation with colours & lighting that will really set your event apart from the crowd, we have you covered!
