About us:

Billy and Julie Wheatley

The indoor plant display part of the business was established in 1982 although there has been a family connection with horticulture since the sixties.   Bill Wheatley was employed at the time by a nursery business, Stuart Low Co.   Bill developed the idea of the shop round: a truck based wholesale plant shop.   While delivering plants to one florist, Bill was asked whether he knew how to reduce the dry atmosphere in a central London hairdressing salon.   He suggested a water feature including a selection of houseplants. The florist asked Bill to install the display and when it was completed, many salon customers passed comment on how attractive it was.    One customer was the wife of the president of an American bank. She asked Bill if he would attend to their garden in St.John’s Wood and he duly agreed.   The husband was so pleased with the work  he asked Bill to look at the bank’s City office garden and office plants.  Bill again agreed and was soon involved in transforming an uninspiring garden in to an award winning feature.

Further City work came from this contract including the gardens at Chase Manhattan Bank.   After a few years the office plant contract was being renewed and Bill was asked to quote.   The quotation was accepted and the indoor side of the family run business established.  Further developments included maintenance of water features, short term  flower display hire for events, fresh flowers for reception areas and artificial plants.
