North Queenslander’s turned city folk, Bella and Keylan are passionate about greenery. Bella was raised in a family where gardening is a way of live. If she wasn’t visiting her grandmothers water lily farm or pottering around her dads bonsai collection, she was out in the hills of North Queensland discovering new places and photographing moss ( yes moss! ). Keylan is a man of many talents, if he isn’t tracking down rare plants, he is building furniture and greenery specific fixtures to complement their locally sourced products. Together, Bella and Keylan work and live by Greenery, constantly bringing nature into the urban landscape.

Bella was lovely and helped me create a lovely kokedama to take home. We will definitely be back!

Wendy Layther  •  Nov 2020


Bella explained techniques very well. Her voice projected well and she identified problems quickly and was very supportive without being condescending. Information given was detailed enough for me to feel confident creating my own projects.

Bella was delightful and super helpful. It was easy to follow, and she was patient and ensured we were all at the same stage before we progressed. Bella also provided a lot of great information, hints and tips.

Traci Milner  •  Feb 2020


I think for the amount of money i paid for the workshop the plants could have been abit more substantial and more interesting than the small assorted ferns provided. That is my only review on the workshop. The teacher was good she was quirky, supplies were ok not great but ok. Venue was good. Parking was good. Macrame was good enjoyed that the most.

Great venue, great teacher, nice relaxed environment. Thanks for a lovely workshop with a super product!
