Small And Green
82 Mill Road, Cambridge, CB1 2AS
Janet Fox of Small and Green has been a part of Cambridge’s wonderful mix of indies for over four years now, trading from the central market and popping up at various venues around the city and beyond. And now Small and Green has partnered with another local indie business, The Garden Kitchen, to open a bricks and mortar shop under the umbrella name of ‘82’ on one of Cambridge’s best loved streets – Mill Road – with plants, cakes and coffee all under one roof!
Situated on the Petersfield side of the bridge, Small and Green sell a huge variety of beautiful houseplants and hand-made terrariums, together with a carefully curated mix of plant-related gifts and homeware – pots, planters, plant stands, cards and hanging baskets – all individual, quirky and innovative products, many from local artists and other independents.
Houseplants are tremendously popular right now, as people learn the health and wellbeing benefits of bringing nature inside. Janet offers a wide range of beautiful indoor plants, from succulents and cacti to leafy houseplants. And having been a professional gardener for over 20 years, Janet has a wealth of knowledge and advice on how to keep your plants looking their best.
A range of easy-care plants is always on offer for the newer plant parent, and of course terrariums are a very popular choice too, being so low maintenance! Terrariums are regularly made by hand in the shop and you can also book yourself and a friend onto one of their terrarium making workshops where you can come and make your very own indoor garden housed in a glass jar. The workshops also make great presents and you can book onto one on the website or in store. Potting on and plant care workshops are now also available.
So, whether you’re looking for a special gift idea or simply want to create a room with a bloom, why not pay Small and Green a visit at 82. You’ll also be able to treat yourself to some of the Garden Kitchen’s delicious, fresh, homemade takeaway food and coffee – the perfect indie combination! Remember too to keep an eye on her Instagram as Janet regularly posts details of upcoming workshops, care tips and featured plants.
