Is your current plantner too delicate, needy, prickly, or drinking too much?

Maybe they’re giving you the silent treatment, they don’t get on with your beloved pet, or you’ve simply outgrown each other?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, join TV houseplant guru Mr Plant Geek and plant inspiration site The Joy of Plants this October for a free speed-dating event – with a difference.

As October officially marks the start of cuffing season and social media mentions of houseplants triple between September and October, The Lonely Plants Club opens its doors on the 14th and 15thOctober to help singletons looking for their leafy love match ahead of the long winter.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show winner Ian Drummond will oversee the transformation of Mayfair’s The Lucky Club into a lush and sexy jungle while TV houseplant guru Mr Plant Geek will host plant match-making sessions – finding you the perfect connection whether you’re a hopeless romantic, a quiet intellectual, an animal lover, or an adventurer.

Attendees can enjoy one-on-one advice whilst sipping on complimentary plant-themed drinks and snacks, while flicking through a gifted copy of Michael’s book*, Hortus Curious: Discover the World’s Most Weird and Wonderful Plants and Fungi, before heading home with their free, perfectly matched plant partner – for more than just a one-night stand.
