Our Story

Who is The Gluttonous Gardener?

The Gluttonous Gardener germinated over 20 years ago when Ned Trier (the boss and Head Glutton) found himself in yet another London traffic jam while delivering plants to a client for his gardening business. Keen to avoid the traffic and to keep busier in the quieter months he devised a service sending plants through the post as gifts.

Ned's aim was to create a range of presents where you could send a lasting gift for the same price as a decent bunch of flowers. Starting with just three very original products - The Olive Enthusiasts Kit, The Red Wine and Vine Crate and The Orange Crate  - the company has grown and grown.

Today we have over 70 unique gifts for every gift-giving occasion imaginable. Every year, we send thousands of beautiful crates throughout the country and into Europe. 

20 years on, The Gluttonous Gardener stays true to Ned's original aim: that all of our gifts should contain something for instant delight coupled with a flourishing plant that will bring years of pleasure.

Our award-winning customer service team, and crew of expert packers now send out thousands of growing gifts throughout the land. With Ned's horticultural expertise we cultivate and nurture the majority of plants at Orchard Cottage, our nursery in Berkshire. Each parcel is lovingly hand packed to order at our Battersea HQ and sent by overnight courier, ensuring that each and every gift arrives looking as wonderful as it did when it left us.
