About Akamba

Akamba Garden Centre - The Palm Tree People - A bit of Kenya in the West Midlands Akamba Easy Exotics Garden Centre - The palm tree people and a garden centre like no other! We offer an exciting range of cold hardy exotic plants including ferns, palms and also have stunning metal sculptures of African animals and birds. Butterflies, birds, and beautiful plants - wander round the centre and stay for a drink. With a bar and a great venue with seating, we have regular BBQ evenings and nights with live music. Chris has a great passion for exotic plants, exotic places and Africa in particular. He has been growing plants since he could walk, on leaving school at the age of sixteen his passion for ice skating took him to an olympic level at speed skating, where he represented Great Britain in the olympics, aswell as sports he has been a glass blower, fashion designer, artist, sculptor and gym instructor. Akamba was founded in 2002 after years of growing hardy exotic plants but never being able to buy them locally, Chris decided to source and import them himself, The plants combined with a love for African art created the perfect recepie for an African garden centre. All the African art is fair trade, Chris and Kel know all the artists and their families on a personal level and work very closely with them to achieve the standards and finish required for the western market. The plants at Akamba are often cold grown without the aid of vast green houses, this helps them thrive in our chilly British winters. During the years at Akamba Chris has worked on many TV gardening programmes such as Challange Tommy Walsh, Garden Invaiders and has featured on BBC Gardeners World. At Akamba we offer all services ranging from garden design, venue hire, plant hire or a simple chat on the telephone to answer a query. Our gardening services include: Landscape Design - Home & Commercial Commercial Sales Venue & Plant Hire Plant Request Wholesale & Trade
