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!

Lisa is the owner of Root Houseplants; she loves plants and pups. Lisa loves Aroids and Hoya; if she had to pick some favourites it would be her Philodendron 'Florida Ghost' and Hoya curtisii. 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!

Here's some of our customer reviews....

So this is easily the most exciting shop in Liverpool for me. It's the cutest most enchanting feast of green gorgeousness! Nestled in the historical Bluecoat courtyard in the centre of town- a great place to visit and absorb some Liverpool heritage too- (The bluecoat is also not to be missed). I have, no lie about 30+ plants from Root houseplants and my flat has become a jungle of healthy growing friends... Every plant I have purchased has been accompanied with a care card and they are thriving! The owners are delightful helpful and friendly! Keep up the great work!
