Our Story


How it all started

Between Two Thorns began life in early 2017 as a mere market stall in the center of Brighton selling cut flowers. With Alys' background in floristry - it seemed a natural transition to sell ready made bouquets. Unfortunately it didn't work! So flowers led down a natural path to plants and after much experimenting, propagating, courses, reading and research, the littlest plant shop was born

Plants make people happy. So does coffee, cake and learning. Between Two thorns is a haven where people can munch cake, and slurp coffee whilst learning new skills in a happy environment
