Your favourite plant lovers, Michael and Ellen meet Ian Drummond, director of the fabulous company, Indoor Garden Design.

They are specialists in interior landscaping, from design to installation through to maintenance. Alongside installations in offices, Indoor Garden Design’s speciality is events and creating living backgrounds and sculptures for parties. The team of green-fingered experts has styled high profile events such as the BAFTAs, London Fashion Week and, most spectacularly, Sir Elton John’s Summer Ball at his house in Windsor.

Ian chats about how the company started and has celebrated houseplants way before they became Instagram worthy. Indoor Garden Design started in a small garage in 1975, when its founder, Ed Wolf, was a true pioneer who brought the houseplant trend from the Netherlands to London.

Ian reveals his favourite plants, as well as the ones he likes to avoid! He gives his top houseplants recommendations, discusses the future and gives his predictions for the next trend in houseplants.

In this episode, Michael and Ellen also have a guest for the gossip section. They visited the new shop of Donna Hodds, also known as Pretty Little Cactus, where they had a bit of a giggle about houseplants and some serious chat about plant passports!
