WHAT'S A TYPICAL DAY FOR YOU AT LEAF SUPPLY?
Each morning we get all the orders ready for delivery. Plants are potted up, botanical wares are carefully packaged and notes and address labels are handwritten. From there every day is different. It might involve a trip out to the nurseries to source plants or researching different botanical products, some marketing work like creating Instagram content and EDMs, photographing products, liaising with various people about any collaborations we have in the works, and at the moment, prepping for the launch of our second book Indoor Jungle.
HOW DID YOU GUYS MEET AND COME UP WITH THE IDEA FOR LEAF SUPPLY?
We were introduced by mutual friend, set up on a kind of plant-based blind date. That first coffee we realised we both had a similar idea for an online plant business so decided to pursue it together. After lots of planning and prepping, a year later we launched!
YOU MUST BE EXCITED ABOUT THE RELEASE OF YOUR SECOND PLANT BOOK 'INDOOR JUNGLE'?
We are so bloody lucky to have been given the opportunity to write both of our books. Indoor Jungle follows on from our first Leaf Supply with a more in depth look at the world of plant styling. We still go over the basics of plant care, and explore our favourite classic and new wave plants, but also look at how to choose your personal approach to styling and break down styling ideas room by room. The spaces we have photographed for this book are just incredible, we peek into homes, work spaces and public spaces from New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, London and back home in Sydney and Melbourne. Our interviews with the owners are warm, insightful and full of inspiration.
