Who makes Plant Belles?
We do... With the help of a small team of metalworkers, we are very proud to hand-make all our unique plant support products, here at Plant Belles HQ in Penstone, Devon, UK.
Founded by Jenny and Alex. Jenny is the designer of all these wire plant supports & accessories, in the Plant Belle style. Alex is responsible for all production. A responsibility that he takes very seriously, you can read about our ethics and efforts to be green and sustainable in our Blog posts and Instagram updates. See our post Quality over quantity... Follow us on Instagram @plantbelles for a look behind the scenes.
For over 15 years we have managed to keep our product range unique. All designs have full copyright protection. Despite some shady attempts other businesses have made, at copying our work, we are proud to be the exclusive designers & makers of Plant Belles. See our credentials detailed below.
When we are not making Plant Belles we are training for open water swimming adventures. See our swim adventures blog post.
Based in Devon at Plant Belles HQ, our business is originally called Flower Power Garden Products, but people usually call us Plant Belles.
