It's difficult to ignore and not be slightly curious by the tongue-in-cheek name of this Alderley garden and gift store. If the name wasn't enough to catch my attention and bring a little giggle, it was when I stepped inside "I Wet My Plants Garden and Gifts" that the real curiosity began.

I Wet My Plants Garden and Gifts is a collaborative initiative which brings independent artists and showcases and sells the wares of some 40 small businesses. With a focus on makers, I Wet My Plants has an assortment of gifts, homewares and decor for yourself or someone special. The pieces are bespoke and handmade bringing a unique and original quality to each item.

There are potted plants, of course, but that is only the start. Handmade toys, baby wear, hats, face scrubbies, greeting cards and bags are all on the shelves. For the sweet tooth, there is homemade honey and biscuits. There is a generous assortment of dangling and studded earrings. I even found a pair of KISS earrings (in tribute to the rock band) featuring the faces of the Star Child Paul Stanley and the Demon Gene Simmons.

Vendors include:
  • Essential Earthing
  • Elise Cha Cha Cha
  • Mond Wulf
  • Tote Bags Made By El
  • Jennys Cakes
  • Cheeky Little Monkeys Jewellery and much more.

  • The shop opened in April 2023 and since then has continued to attract buyers and sellers looking for something original and unique and made with love. Sellers rent space within the shop to show and sell their creations.

    With Mother's Day fast approaching, this may be a good time to stop by and possibly pick up a gift for Mum or a significant mother figure to say thank you for all that they do. Prices are very reasonably priced and you will have something that can't be found in a mass-produced form.
