Hi and Welcome to Folia
We're passionate about all things houseplants.
Our aim is to bring you a good range of top quality contemporary houseplants, combined with our knowledge and plant advice which should help you make the right choice.
The business was started by Louise Gill back in 2017, we're based in Cheltenham in the Cotswolds.
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 has proved to be a great success and a great launch pad, but recently Louise took the decision to come out of the shop and focus on what she loved doing best which are pop ups, events and selling online. This gives Louise flexibility both professionally and personally.
The shop became a popular destination for plant lovers looking for a wide range of plants and accessories, friendly advice and a specialist plant sourcing service. We hope to replicate this online and create a great plant community for our customers.
We hope we can still share our plant knowledge, tips and styling advice through the website to help provide the very best advice and service to the plant novice or the hardened enthusiast.
