The Duke’s Umbrella’s General Manager, Craig McKay said:

We love all Emma’s work, as do our customers and we recently had a TV crew visit to film a new cold case thriller for ITV called Karen Pirie and I’m pretty sure her plants make an appearance!”

On the day we’ll have food and drinks offers on and there’s plenty of space and light for your plants to relax whilst you have a light bite, Sunday Roast, lunch or a drink with us, the event is free and there’s no need to book.”

The Plant Mama specialises in easy care and air purifying plants, so whether you are a seasoned Plant Parent or just starting out, there will be something perfect for everyone. Her selection of plants is second to none, and the health of each Plant Baby will speak for itself. Each plant from Plant Mama has been acclimated to living and being looked after in a Scottish home, promising the highest of quality. Plus, every plant comes with their Plant Mama Care Guarantee, entitling all Plant Parents to a lifetime of care support and advice to keep your Plant Babies as happy, healthy, and thriving as they day they came home.

Amid the uncertainty of several lockdowns, it is easy to see how the Plant Mama has created such an incredible community of plant lovers both online, through pop-ups, and now from her soon to open, Merchant City store. The beauty of nature and the outdoors has proven to reduce stress and increase serotonin levels, giving us a feeling of vastness and calm. Emma’s business demonstrates that indoors, plants can do the exact same thing for us, and have proven to be a real mood-booster for many within this community.

Emma Kelsey, Owner of Glasgow Plant Mama says:

“My customers and supporters are some of the kindest people I have ever met, and I wouldn’t be where I am now without them. I am so lucky to have an amazing community of people around me that are so genuine and interested in my business and success. We have been closed for a few weeks while we get the new shop up and running, and I am so excited to see everyone again!“

“The Duke’s Umbrella is a gorgeous venue, and I can’t wait to share my plants with PlanParents old and new!” 

Glasgow Plant Mama’s pop-up shop will take place on Sunday 19th September from 12-5pm at The Duke’s Umbrella on Argyle Street, making the incredible benefits of houseplants accessible to all. Pop down to the pop-up to adopt your very own Plant Babies and enjoy all that they have to offer!
