Speaker Bio - Alice & Maddie Bailey
Sisters Alice & Maddie’s love of plants started at an early age. They helped their Opa (a Dutch grower of cut flowers) on his nurseries and allotment, and their Mum (an award winning horticulturist) in the garden and with her cut flower business. Maddie also studied horticulture level 2 with the RHS.
Living in a London home with limited outdoor space, they began experimenting with indoor plants before opening their first houseplant shop, Forest, in 2013. They first book, The Green Indoors, was published in 2021, the same year they won a Gold medal at Chelsea Flower Show for their houseplant studio.
Since then the sisters have written two more books, started to grow their own houseplants at their cut flower farm in Kent, and worked closely with the RHS (Alice is a member of the Tender Ornamental Plant Committee).
