"Really glad to have found Understory just around the corner from me! Purchased a plant as a gift for a friend and given great advice on how to look after it too. Bonus points for specifying which plants were “pet friendly” online too as I was able to find exactly what I was looking for."


"Well worth a visit to this lovely plant shop that sells much more besides lovely plants. Great service and advice always in store while the delivery service during lockdown has been brilliant. I will be a regular when it reopens!"


"Beth and Harry's shop is a gorgeous, peaceful little haven in Kemptown. They have a really nice selection of plants, pots and accessories and are always so friendly and helpful. It's always a treat to visit, thank you both!"


"Beth was so helpful in delivering a gift to some friends, gift wrapping it and including a message. Can't recommend them highly enough!"


"The service is excellent (my order was delivered only a few hours after purchase). In fact I loved them so much I've signed up for their monthly plant subscription! Can never have enough."
