Here's a little bit about me

Hey, I’m Suzanne, and I am the owner of The Ginger Jungle...And I’m totally obsessed with houseplants!

I independently set The Ginger Jungle in 2018 in a sleepy Sussex village after struggling to find the next plant on my very long list (and still is lol) So I took the brave leap and here I am over a year on and I'm proudly going strong.

So like me, if you’ve ever wondered: Where can I find the unique plant's that actually look like the one pictured, arriving in fab condition, all perfectly packed? You’re in the right place...

And I am obsessively passionate about it too! Don't just take my word for it check out my many testimonials

This is me

It's been just over three months now since I launched The Ginger Jungle, so I thought I would try and do a little update on my little business venture so far...

To start with I must say I've been pretty overwhelmed on the fantastic feedback and support that I've had from everyone so far which says to me I'm obviously on the right track. And I am super thankful for all the sales that I have had considering the time of the year. I've had to restock 4 times so far and I have managed to get some great stock in.

My favourite so far has to be the Alocasia cuprea I waited for about 6 weeks before these came back in stock and they sold out in super quick! I am not surprised as they are gorgeous you can see for yourself.

Another popular houseplant was the Epipremnum happy leaf. This beauty was discovered a couple of years ago as a mutation and has now been developed as a new kind. I will definitely be offering these as much as I can.

So, so far everything seems to be going great, the hardest thing is juggling two business (for thous who might not know my main job is a canine behaviourist/dog trainer) running one very busy business is hard work let alone two. So I'm and making sure that I can give enough time to both plus look after my jungle! It's a little daunting but I'm so happy I took the plunge and started The Ginger Jungle. This has also made me appreciate my dog training business more, after 12 years it's easy to get tired and I suppose I forgot why I started in the first place it's easy to lose that when you get caught up in "life" So it's funny how starting the ginger jungle has helped me grow more in other areas of my life.

Anyway peace out :)

Welcome to my new site and blog, together we can share the love of houseplants...

I actually can't believe I've actually taken the plunge on this new business adventure!

Below is a little bit of info about me...

Philodendron verrucosum UK The Ginger Jungle
The ginger jungle - This is a beautiful Philodendron verrucosum

The ginger jungle was born...

It's taken me about 9 months to get to this stage and I'm super relieved that I am able to share my site with the world. I'm from a little village in Sussex, England called Hurstpierpoint it's basically just down the road from Brighton not far from the Sussex downs a beautiful and perfect place to set up my online houseplant business. I am actually a canine behaviourist and already run a quite successful dog training business and have done for the past 12 years. So how do I go from training dogs to selling rare plants I hear you ask...

It all started with me just buying one and then slowly over time my collection grow to over 400 plants!!! I'm sure many of you reading this can relate to this and yes I am quite proud of being a self-confessed plant addict lol

Pretty soon I started to realise that it was actually pretty hard to find houseplants that are on the rare side and I saw a good opportunity to try and make this easier for people here in the UK and the rest of Europe. So over the last nine months, I have been working hard in sourcing good honest suppliers (believe me this is not easy) from all over the globe.

Designing website, branding, packing designing, sourcing and looking after my stock and not forgetting keeping all my other houseplant alive (a few did not make it :( ) plus running my other business! I'm so excited that part is over and I can actually start selling but I suppose now the real work beings...

Start spreading the news...
