Meet Julia, our founder and resident plant expert.
Underleaf was founded in 2014 by Julia, a person with the enviable position of knowing that plants would be her lifelong passion from as early as she can remember. As soon as they would take her, Julia began working in her local plant nursery in Germany.
The path was set and naturally she took her study of plants further by choosing to read Phytopathology at university. Soon after graduating, Julia gained practical experience in Italy before taking a job as a greenhouse manager in Ethiopia.
London, the next stop on her journey, is where she saw an opportunity to create fresh and exciting new plant schemes for restaurants. Today her expertise gained in making plants work in busy commercial environments is applied across all the projects we undertake.
Our take on biophilia
The science of how plants can affect our health and general well-being is still emerging, therefore we tend to shy away from making big claims.
What is clear is that plants improve the environment around them certainly on an aesthetic level, if not also in terms of the joy and happiness they give to people. As more and more humans find themselves living in urban environments, the need to connect with nature is ever more important.
94 Columbia Rd, London E2 7QB
We began our foray into retail with a small shop on the iconic Columbia Rd in East London.
Our shop is compact but offers an ever-changing selection of stunning and unusual house plants along with a unique selection of planters. We can also source and deliver a huge range of plants on request.
From the humble windowsill garden to the tropical city oasis we can offer expert advice. Our mission is to help people cultivate their own unique urban jungle.
What an absolute pleasure it was to have Underleaf with us today - they were so knowledgeable and did the most incredible job with the plants. The office is already transformed!
Julia and Joe’s beautiful store in Columbia Road makes me lust for more plants every time I walk by. They have a beautiful aesthetic sense and I love the passion they have for their business... On top of it, Julia, Joe and their team are so knowledgeable and friendly and have been a joy to work with.
Joe and the team were so professional and inspiring to work with. Can't wait to work with you again soon.
