The Breathing Leaf

Hello & Welcome

I am Helen, a plant enthusiast, mother of two and now the owner of The Breathing Leaf.

What began with selling my very first plant online due to lack of space has quickly become a project of passion fuelled by a love for the unusual and rare plants.

The last year taught me to stop, slow down and breathe and enjoy the present… for me that became The Breathing Leaf.

I pride myself in supplying a unique selection of homegrown as well premium sourced speciality plants and find living treasures to take home, nurture and enjoy.

Happy browsing fellow plant enthusiasts. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in finding out about eh varieties of plants available.

What Customers Are Saying

I bought 3 plants from here and amazingly they’re all thriving!!! highly recommended

– Maria Orencia

I’ve ordered from Helen quite a few times now and have always received beautiful healthy and excellently packaged plants. The line of communication is exceptional and Helen really cares about what she does. Thank you Helen


I’ve purchased Hoyas from Helen a few times and I’m always very impressed by the attention to detail that she puts into packaging the plants very well. I bought a Hoya from Helen a while ago and it is already grew some peduncles. I’m very excited to see my first flowers. When you buy from Helen, you can trust that you’re getting a quality plant.


“I have purchased from Helen twice now, and both times I have made a purchase I have been exceptionally happy in every regard: the postage is always really quick, everything is packaged securely with minimal breakages, the plants have been happy and healthy and acclimatised really quickly, and no pests present either! Helen also included some Rhipsalis cuttings in my last order, which was so kind. 

I will absolutely 100% order from Helen again.”
