The Ginger Jungle’s seed was first sown back in 2017 with the main goal being to provide a wider range of houseplants that arrived perfectly packed at your doorstep. The company was founded by keen plant collector, Suzanne, who decided it was time to put her passion for plants into practice. So with a splash of her own personal values and ideas, she set up her very own plant company which blossomed in 2018.
From a kitchen table to a garden shed - The Ginger Jungle is now a humble team of four and operates from a beautiful unit in the South Downs known as, ‘The Jungle’.
No matter what stage you are at in your plant journey, The Ginger Jungle is here to support you. From, “All I do is kill plants” to “All I do is think about plants”, we will be your virtual plant shop guiding you every step of the way.

We only want you to receive what we’d hope to receive ourselves which is why the plants we pick are chosen through our own enthusiasm for all things leafy. Before they reach you they are housed properly, watered, cleaned and pruned as if they were our own. This care is extended to prepping them for the journey ahead as they make their way towards you. We take great pride in our packaging as proven in the testimonials given by many happy customers.
As advocates for the colour green (of course), we would like to encourage the natural growth of our planet, and not have any contribution to even the smallest carbon footprint - that’s why we’re working towards being a genuinely sustainable business. Currently, all of our packaging is recyclable or reusable and in the near future, we aspire to discontinue any non-recyclables at HQ as well.
Having all come from customer service backgrounds, we know that you are our main attribute to growth. Loyalty should be shared both ways and maintaining this attitude means being attentive, patient & understanding. These qualities are what makes our working environment a fun and wonderful place to be and we hope to convey this experience across to you. This mentality is not only shared with you and the rest of the team but also with suppliers, delivery drivers, neighbours and all humans alike - being kind is part of our ethos!
Community/Inspiring Small Businesses
We are advocates of our small community and surrounding Sussex areas. To connect means to share and where there is passion, there’s always a story. Exchanging the tales between other local entrepreneurs has created a business support bubble like no other. This micro-community helps to aid: individual growth where needed, creative positivity, collaborative ventures, and provides a shoulder to cry on during the global pandemic. There is no better demonstration of our identity than the narrative of people who make up our community. If The Ginger Jungle can start operating from a garden shed, what are you capable of achieving?
