Little Shop of Horticulture

Potting plants in your pied-à-terre is near impossible, but new shop Olla Urban Flower Project makes it easy to get green.

Pots are ready to take home, like agave in black concrete, air plants in glass terrariums and mixed cacti in colourful ceramics, or custom order one that suits your space, aesthetic and spending allowance. Specializing in Ikebana (Japanese flower arranging), they also offer bouquets that are anything but ordinary.

Buying local and ethically traded plants, and supporting non-profits by forwarding on flowers after conference events, they have community conscience too.

It's a green thumb dream come true.
