About Root

Lisa and Anna (MaryMary Florals)

Hello! I’m Lisa, the founder of Root Houseplants

My passion for plants led me to start Root Houseplants in 2017, I wanted to share my enthusiasm and knowledge with others and provide people with the ideal plants to suit their space. Our shops are home to over 200 plant varieties, come and visit us in person or shop online for delivery across the UK.

Our Promise

To source the best plants from around the world and deliver them safely to your homes with the knowledge you'll need to keep your plants happy.

Our Story

I had a modest collection of succulents and cacti at home, however, I was pretty limited with space. Thankfully, when I moved in with my husband, there was plenty of space for plants.

When I went in search of new and exciting plants for my home I was left disappointed with the few options available to me. I started Root to provide plant lovers like myself with a shop that sells an exhaustive range of plants and a service that promotes plant education and a safe space for all.

We started selling online in 2017 and had our first market stall in April 2018. Since then we’ve delivered over 10,000 online orders and have two brick and mortar stores in Liverpool and West Kirby. I'm incredibly proud that our family-run business has been featured by The Times, Visit Liverpool, Independent Liverpool, Living Etc and Liverpool John Moores University. Most of all, I feel privileged to run a business that combines my passion and knowledge for plants, and the testimonials from our happy customers make it all worthwhile!

When she's not in the shop she'll most likely be at home with her sausage dog Bubs, or watching cooking shows in her pyjamas!

Beautiful plant. Much bigger, healthier and nicer than I thought it would be for the low price. Well packaged, quick delivery and included my gift message. I'll definitely order again - thank you!

I cannot recommend Root Houseplants enough, they have been so helpful and informative throughout my purchase process. They gave me advice on which plants were best suited to my needs i.e. non toxic for pets and then a care guide is sent out in an email when your plants have been delivered which I am so grateful for! Thank you so much for all of your help :)
