Wellbeing garden for NHS Nightingale staff

April 16, 2020 Matt Lindsay

Richard Sabin, our MD, was phoned by the building contractor at the London NHS Nightingale Hospital. He wanted to know if we could help “do something” about the staff change area, which was just bland and unfriendly. Yes we can! And we did. In just three days, we created a garden for the staff at […]

Greening the grey

April 2, 2020 Matt Lindsay

With populations in towns and cities on the up, the need for more housing and social infrastructure has never been greater. Unfortunately, that often leads to grey and dreary buildings that are a bit of an eyesore to our built environment. However! Living walls and green roofs can add immediate improvement. As well as providing […]

Here at Growing Revolution, our products are built to last. PlantBox is made from 100% recycled UK plastic in Norfolk and value our British suppliers, especially in these weird and unprecedented times!

Before vs. After (Case Study)

April 2, 2020 Matt Lindsay

Elberry Properties Ltd had just completed on a high-end development in Chichester before contacting Growing Revolution for their vertical garden. It had turned out that Elberry Properties were only ten minutes down the road from us and the courtyard space was a perfect fit for PlantBox. The team were quick to assemble the PlantBox troughs […]

Indoor Gardening

April 2, 2020 Matt Lindsay

At Growing Revolution HQ we wanted to get in on the act and have our own living wall for our office. Our breakout space is used for informal meetings and a waiting area when people visit us but it was uninspiring and tired. The rest of our office is full of plants and is often […]

Revelation Family Church, Chichester

April 2, 2020 Matt Lindsay

The team working on the design for the new church building for the Revelation family Church in Chichester, West Sussex wanted to create a welcoming atmosphere in their café and meeting space that would encourage members of their community to gather together and enjoy this space. A PlantBox Plus living wall was an ideal way […]

Courtyard Gardens

April 2, 2020 Matt Lindsay

When Steven and Harvey bought their new apartment in London’s trendy east end, they were surprised to learn the developer had included a living wall in the plans. “It was great” said Steve, “they hadn’t settled on a design at that stage so Harvey and I were able to get the design we both wanted.  […]

Peace of mind in a troubled time

March 23, 2020 Matt Lindsay

These are “strange times” indeed.  At the beginning of March 2020, we were all looking forward to the end of the endless February rains (wasn’t it a horrible wet winter?) At the end of March, we have beautiful fresh Spring sunshine, but are confined to our homes to help stop the spread of coronavirus. The […]

Watering is easy

March 23, 2020 Matt Lindsay

Watering is SO easy! Each planting trough in a PlantBox green wall has a water reservoir that holds 1.8 litres of water – that’s enough to keep plants watered for 1 to 4 weeks, depending on the season and location. A specially designed water-wicking felt draws the water up, providing a constant water source directly […]

Bringing the outdoors in

March 23, 2020 Matt Lindsay

A new building for church and community.  Revelation Family Church moved into their beautiful new building in January 2020 – complete with a huge living PlantBox green wall in the welcome lounge. The building was previously a retail unit, and most of the rooms have no natural light, so the design team were thrilled when […]

Accessible gardening

March 23, 2020 Matt Lindsay

“I love having the plants at the right height!” This was the delighted response of Rachael, who felt unable to get properly hands-on in their family garden, because it’s too awkward from her wheelchair. One PlantBox delivery later, and Rachael has been able to plant it up herself – with a little help (or was […]
