On a steep hill in London's Blackheath Village, sat W.T.Amos, a family greengrocer. With large open windows from which to sell their fruit and veg, the shop served the local community for many years, and is fondly remembered by many of our customers.
When we moved in, we originally established the space as a window into our garden design, landscaping and construction business, which allowed us to indulge our passion for beautifully designed products.
It became clear that our community loved the style in our ever changing window displays, so we opened our doors as a retailer.
A family business
Independently owned by Julia Keen and Brian Hamilton, hortus is now established as one of the finest gardening stores in the country. We are constantly evolving as we source new products to enrich our lives, creating a more sustainable and quality-led way of living.
As our high streets change, we strive to keep the feeling of community alive and well.
