What does The Duke’s Umbrella say: 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, lunch, Sunday roast or a drink with us. The event is free and there’s no need to book.”

What is ‘The PlantMama’: The PlantMama specialises in easy care and air purifying plants. So whether you are a seasoned ‘PlantParent’ or just starting out, there will be something perfect for everyone.

Every plant comes with their PlantMama Care Guarantee, entitling all owners to a lifetime of care support and advice to keep your plants as happy, healthy, and thriving as they day they came home.

What does ‘The PlantMama’ say: Emma Kelsey, owner of Glasgow PlantMama, said: “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 PlantParents old and new!”
