Small And Green
Janet Fox is no stranger to green spaces. A gardener with over 20 years’ experience, she is at her happiest out in the elements either weeding a mixed border or pruning a box hedge to perfection. And now the green-fingered Cambridge resident has branched out with her own houseplant business, Small & Green.
Houseplant love has experienced something of a renaissance in recent times and one look at Janet’s carefully curated collection and it’s easy to see why. Dedicated to helping people bring their garden inside, Janet offers a range of beautiful plants from quirky cacti to her best seller – the Oxalis Triangularis Purpurea. With its butterfly-like petals which close at night and then re-open in the morning, the exotic tongue-twister is a guaranteed head turner. For something a little more traditional her Spotted Begonia is a bit of a favourite, while Janet is keen to impress that something as simple as a pretty potted Ivy never fails to add interest. Terrariums are also a popular choice – the glass creation enables you to have your own indoor garden for minimum effort.
While the changing product line is impressive enough, what makes the plants even more special are the pots in which they are sold. Customers can choose from a selection, including concrete, which are handmade by a dynamic craftsperson, an eye-catching crackled pot which Janet has personally sourced, and for an ultra-modern option, there is a 3D printed range.
So, whether you’re looking for a special gift idea or simply want to create a room with a bloom, why not pay Small & Green a visit, you’ll be glad you did!
Janet can be found on the main Cambridge market every Wednesday 10am-4pm, opposite Marks and Spencer, but it's also possible to get your 'plant-fix' from home as she takes orders via her shop on the Click It Local website. Keep an eye out too on her Instagram as Janet posts details there of upcoming pop-up events.
