Inspired by nature and fueled by design, The Plant Story was conceived for busy urbanites to experience nature without the need to slog under the sun. Our team takes pride in our continual research and development of urban gardening creations that are aesthetically pleasing yet easy enough for first time gardeners to adopt.

As an advocate in education and empowerment, our urban gardening workshops encourage a time of self-discovery under the guidance of our trainers. Should you wish to differentiate your event with nature, our bespoke design service team will help you realise your dreams. Or simply come in and have a cuppa at our garden cafe and be pleasantly surprised by what nature has in store for you.

Meet the Chief Urban Gardener

Cath Lim

Chief Urban Gardener/Certified Practicing Horticulturist

As Maslow heirachy of needs would have it, Cath’s decision to set up The Plant Story in 2009 was propelled by her desire to live a life of significance at the peak of her 16-year career in advertising.
Her objective was simply to break her curse as a serial plant killer and to bring hope to busy urbanites who believe they have a perpetual black thumb. Her conviction led her to leave her comfort zone in the corporate jungle to fully immerse herself into this mission she called `Project Give-back`.
Once a Carrie Bradshaw strutting around town in her Manolos and Louboutins, Cath is now a trained landscape designer as well as a certified practicing horticulturist who continues to exude her bohemian sense of style.
