Q & A with Angela Maynard of Botany


I first met Angela-the owner of Hackney lifestyle store Botany in February.

Angela has been a keen collector of flowers since her early teens and having
always wanted a creative space for designers and makers, she opened Botany
this year on Mother's day.

Along with flowers and cacti the shop sells many beautiful gifts and greeting cards-
mine included.

If you're along the Chatsworth Road pop in and have a look around-Botany is well
worth the visit.

Chatsworth Road,
London E5.
