Garden Divas Ltd is an online gardening inspired gift boutique based in rural Hertfordshire. We are a family owned & run business headed by mother and daughter team, Gilly Brown and Katie Nicholl.
In the summer of 2007 our first website was launched dedicated initially to sourcing a wide range of gardening gifts for women generating a more stylish look in the garden. This soon expanded to include childrens gardening tools & sets recognising the fact that being in a garden is a wonderful activity for both young and and the not so young. After that we soon welcomed men on board thus creating a modern garden gift emporium for all!
“I’ve always enjoyed being outside but my love of gardening didn’t transpire until a family bereavement rocked my world. At 16 I had to take responsibility for some of the garden and the seed was sown. The garden was my sanctuary , where I could find peace and sense of meaning in an otherwise troubled world. Gardening now is a way of life, something I just do – as normal as brushing my teeth. I don’t profess to be anywhere near an expert, I don’t know latin names or all aspects of pruning but I love creating a colourful outdoor space and I simply adore growing fruit and veg to eat. Gardening is something that all of us can take part in – from growing herbs on the kitchen window ledge, pots on a balcony, tending a postage stamp back garden or cultivating acres of land. My moto has been and still is “Learn as you grow and grow as you learn”. Don’t think you can’t do it as you don’t have the knowledge – you can do as little or as much as you like. It’s fun, it’s inspiring and what’s more gardening is good for you. Do it your way – that’s what being a Garden Diva is all about.” Gilly B.
If you are looking for a special gift for a gardener you know & love we hope you will be inspired by our unique and varied collection. All of our products are carefully chosen by ourselves, tried and tested, and have been recommended and featured in various publications including The Weekend Mail, The Times, Vogue, Amateur Gardening, The English Garden, Gardens Illustrated, Modern Gardens, Grow Your Own & Hertfordshire Life magazines. Our aim is to continue to delight & surprise our lovely customers by introducing more & more high quality products for both the garden and home.
Following on from the growth and success of the initial venture, the company expanded in 2010 with the exciting launch of a second online store, The Horse Diva, providing a unique range of equestrian gifts for stylish horse riders! This too has galloped along to become one of the leading horsey gift websites!
We hope you enjoy browsing our websites and always welcome any requests or comments you may have.
