Plants of The Green Planet

View our Green Planet collection.

The magnificent BBC series The Green Planet has come to an end. 

If you're anything like the Lazy Flora team, you'll have been completely captivated by the plants and environments in the series, and are feeling bereft at the end of such a brilliantly filmed piece of art, and you're itching to do something constructive to help the planet and ensure that the plants featured are here for generations to come.

You might also be hopeful that this isn't the last show that we see from Sir David Attenborough, who many of us have grown up watching. I don't know about you, but it's hard to think of many other people I admire as much as him.

In celebration (and sadness that the series has come to an end), we've compiled a collection of plants that are inspired by the programmes in the series.

And for today and tomorrow, we're going to donate £1 from every new purchase on our website from this collection to the WWF, as this is a charity that Sir David Attenborough supports.
