    About The Curious Plant Company

    My name is Robert Kimber, and I am the owner of the Curious Plant Company.

    My wife Tanya and I started the business in order to supplement our vision of a self sustaining lifestyle. We don't yet have our 'Good Life' smallholding, but we are working towards it and hope this business will be the foundation of that dream.

    In the time being our philosophy is to produce honest, lovely plants in an environmentally friendly manner, grown to organic standards.

    Most of the plants we offer have genuine uses as food, medicinal qualities and some secondary use, or may simply be a novelty.

    All our plants are grown from seeds or cuttings in Suffolk, England. 

    We are very proud of this. Many of the plants sold by nurseries and other online retailers, especially exotic plants, are all grown abroad and imported for sale in the UK.

    I'm certain that many people give thought to their carbon footprint and the food miles of the products they purchase and that is why we do not import plants.

    As well as our own vegetables we are surrounded by curious growing things, which is just fabulous, we have a lot of fun doing this and find it very rewarding.

    We hope you will be tempted to buy something from us, but please keep checking back as we will be adding more all the time.

    Any questions? I'm always happy to talk about the plants!


    One other thing - I'm a bit of an author too, check out my book Longlight, available from me directly if you want it signed!

    The Curious Plant Company Dispatch Policies

    We do not seek to make a profit on the shipping costs, so will always do our best to keep this as low as possible.  

    We will send your plant in a specially designed box intended to keep it as safe and sound as possible. It will be packaged with the utmost care just before being taken for dispatch. 

    Lower priced items will be sent First Class Royal Mail. Higher priced items will be sent Special Delivery before noon next day, Royal Mail, and will require a signature.

    It is our aim to get the plant to you as quick as possible and in tip top condition - but this does rely on you being there the following day to take collection. We will therefore endeavour to contact you before delivery to ensure it can take place.

    Please let us know if you want a free hand written gift card included.
