About us

Hi and Welcome to Folia 

The business, based in Cheltenham, was started by Louise Gill back in 2017.

Louise had always had a passion for interiors, plants and gardens. This led her to enrol as a student at the acclaimed Cotswold Gardening School on a Professional Planting Design course in 2016. This gave Louise the confidence to start offering her services as a planting designer in clients gardens. 

So from selling plants out of her home and doing pop ups and events, Louise took the bold step to launch Folia as a retail store in the heart of Cheltenham's Montpellier in 2018.

This was a bit of a tester to see if this could work both for the business and personally for Louise. The shop proved to be a great success and a great launch pad for the business,  but recently Louise took the decision to come out of the shop and focus on what she loved doing best which are planting schemes, styling and pop ups. This gives Louise flexibility both professionally and personally.

Moving forward we now specialise in planting design for both inside and outside, for homes and businesses.
