About Exotic Earth Plants

Beginning as a home grown collection of subtropical half-hardy plants in 2012, my garden hobby has led me on a journey to establish Exotic Earth Plants in 2018. Influenced primarily from visits to the Isles of Scilly and gardens in the south-west, my collection certainly reflects the subtropical plants which can be grown in the UK with minimal to some winter protection.  As a sole trader it has been hard work setting up the business to its current status and customers should be aware this is a second job and  I am only available around my main full time job, generally evenings and weekends.


Located in the mild climate of south Devon, I hold a private collection of Brugmansia which I make available to customers throughout the year online and at fairs and am an active member of Brugmansia Growers International. I am a member of Plant Heritage Devon Group and have protected several plants under the Plant Heritage Plant Guardian scheme I have ambitions to work towards establishing a National Plant Collection of Brugmansia, through Plant Heritage, and would eventually like to setup a specialist nursery.

I also grow a selection of subtropical plants suitable for the UK including Musa, Hedychium, Colocasia, Passiflora, Justicia, Abutilon, Iochroma, Echium, and more. 


Please visit me at a plant fair or purchase something online and give your garden an exotic centerpiece this year!
