Hello – I’m Donna and I’m a sucker for a sad plant!  

I’ve always been a pant lover, even as a child. I remember spending house looking around the garden centre with my parents and grandparents as a child. 

I used to spend my pocket money to buy sad and reduced pants – nursing them back to health. My room as a child was full of houseplants.  


In 2018 we moved to a new house and needed a truck just for the plants. It was at this point my husband said I needed to start selling on some of these plants that I had nursed back to full health or grown myself. This is where my own business, Pretty Cactus started.  


Pretty Cactus started with small stalls, selling homegrown plants at country fayres and craft markets. Before long, I was so busy I gave up work (which at the time was in Marketing for a Financial Services company) and run Pretty Cactus as a full-time venture. The very first Pretty Cactus Plants shop opening in early 2019, with an online website to support.  

The shop is based in Brooke, South Norfolk and I have a small team of plant lovers working along side me. I’m in regular contact with a team of growers and distributors in the UK, Holland and Italy who source plants for me.  

Trying where possible to get hold of more unusual cacti, succulents, and houseplants. 


I am always looking for new ways to style plants. Displaying these ideas in the shop and on Social Media. The Pretty Cactus shop has become an inspirational hub for plant lovers near and far who love to visit the store for ideas, plants, pots, and a bit of friendly plant chat too.
