About

Arkham's Botanical

A little bit about who we are and what we do here at Arkham’s Botanical Limited. Scroll to the bottom of this page and/or visit our Customer Reviews page for some kind words from our customers too.

Established in early 2018, Arkham’s Botanical is a popular and fast-growing online shop designed as a comprehensive and “one-stop” source for all of your ethnobotanical and horticultural needs. With our wide range of stock expanding all the time, we genuinely aim to be a knowledgeable, reliable and honest vendor in a sea of murk!

Owned and operated by a dedicated plant enthusiast and amateur ethnobotanist, the business is currently situated in the UK, benefiting from some growing spaces in Spain’s sunny Costa Brava too. However, 2019 sees us on the way to establishing a much larger and more permanent base in Spain, so expect some good things to come consequent to that!

As unapologetic polyplantpeople, we know what you want (because we want it too!): Cactus fanatic? We’ve Lophophora, Trichocereus and more! Missing Mimosa? We’ve got it! Amorous about Acacia? Sorted. Big into Banisteriopsis, Ipomoea or Virola? You probably get the idea…

On top of that, we aim to donate roughly 5-10% of our annual profits to the causes we support, so by choosing to shop with us, you’re also giving a little something back to the community too!

I was surprised/delighted that the delivery time was so quick for Mimosa Hostilis. Literally days which I wasn't expecting. Would use/recommend this vendor again!

Great quality bark what you see is what you get. Still feels like it's been freshly cut straight from Mimosa Tenuiflora. A little over the advertised weight too!

Service was great but couldn’t get the seeds to germinate because I spilled the pots I had just planted them in.

I seriously just chose these because I want cactus in my collection that I can say is the spawn of Bertha and Macrogonus. Hehe. Pray God these seeds will grow to be as magnificent as they sound!

I have a weakness for scopulicola. Love playing mix and match with these kinds of crosses too--sometimes you really get amazingly unique results

Excellent customer service. I had the incorrect tracking number but i didn't pay to track it... If that makes sense. How my quiries were dealt with was brilliant. There was a slight delay in arrival but that was because of royal mail.. How my questions were answered has only increased my confidence in coming back again in the future 🙂

Some of the best and freshest cacti seeds I ever received my only problem I had with the whole batch is that I was missing 3 seeds but no big deal as they all already are almost sprouted
