Call it cactus city or something like it, this is Conservatory Archives, an urban botanical haven located in the edgy, north-east borough of Hackney, London. Away from the hustle and bustle of Colombia market, you’d probably miss it altogether if you weren’t searching for it.

Not a large space, in fact, it’s a tight squeeze due to its popularity. But if you find yourself lucky enough to have the shop to yourself for a few minutes, it feels as though you’ve been transported out of the city into a moment of oasis.

The space is a motley collection of plants: Cacti, Succulents, yucca, mosses, algae and shrubs; in all shapes and sizes. Hanging, climbers, potted. Whatever your living space needs, the shop has and if you don’t know what it needs Conservatory Archives provides a haven of inspiration.
