Patch is a modern plant shop, for modern plant people. Patch helps you discover the best plants for your space, delivers them to your door and helps you look after them. Patch has delivered over 300,000 plants to 110,000 customers, while growing +100% in the last year. Patch has raised £10m so far and is poised to expand across Europe and cut out the middle-man in its supply chain. As more of us choose to live in big towns and cities, we’re leading busy, stressful lives and our need for nature is growing. We believe that by bringing plants into your home or workplace, life becomes much calmer, healthier and more joyful. There’s a perception that plants are hard work; it’s a mission to find places that deliver plants, it’s difficult to choose the right plants for your space and it’s a pain to look after them - but it doesn’t have to be this way. We were recently voted 16th in the Startups.co.uk #Startups100. The business is backed by the early-stage investor, Forward Partners, and has raised its Series A from one of the most prestigious VCs in the UK, Octopus Ventures.
