Plants are great, aren't they?! Not only are they fantastic listeners and look nice, but numerous studies have shown that they can have significant benefits in the workplace.

Research suggests that introducing plants and other natural elements to cafes, restaurants, offices and other workplaces can

  • improve employee morale and well-being

  • make business more attractive to job applicants

  • help customers feel more relaxed

  • reduce noise levels and improve acoustics

  • boost creativity and productivity

  • reduce employee sickness and absence

Indoor plants even clean the air! NASA researchers found that plants are brilliant at removing chemicals such as formaldehyde. They can also reduce carbon dioxide levels by up to 25%, as well as combating indoor air pollution caused by things like mould, bacteria, soft furnishings, upholstery and exhaust fumes that find their way in from outside.

A One-Stop Shop to suit any budget

Running a business is a time-consuming affair and shopping around to find plants that look great, are easy to care-for, work well in your space and come at the right price can be a slog.

Little Green can take care of all of that for you. If you already have some ideas we can work with you to source exactly what you're looking for. Or if you haven't really put much thought into it, that's fine too. We can take care of everything for you.

We can provide a selection of beautiful plants to suit practically any budget, whether you want to turn your office into a jungle or just brighten-up your cafe with a splash of colour.

Hire or purchase indoor plants

We at Little Green are plant-lovers, but we begrudgingly accept that 'looking after the plants' might not be the highest priority for every business. With our plant hire service, we'll not only deliver a gorgeous set of plants, but we'll also visit regularly to take care of all their watering, pruning and re-potting needs. If you ever fancy a change, we'll swap the plants out with new ones to keep your workplace feeling fresh, vibrant and interesting.

If you'd rather purchase your plants outright, we'll help you select plants that are easy to care for and provide helpful advice and equipment so you can keep your stunning new jungle looking its best. If you ever have any questions, we're just a phone call or an email away.

We are little green

As a family-run, local, independent business, we believe in providing a personal service in a positive way. Little Green is peat-free, plastic-free and run almost entirely on renewable energy. Find out more about our sustainability here.
