Ivy and the Wolf

Ivy and the Wolf is a small independent business that grew out of a passion for unconventional house plants.

Inspired by fond memories of her grandma’s wild, overgrown garden, Sanne (or Ivy, due to her vibrant red hair) started Ivy and the Wolf to bring joy into people’s homes. Whilst also walking her dog around London (he makes up the ‘Wolf’ part), Sanne also realised the positive mental, emotional and physical health benefits associated with having greenery in your space.

What started as a small plant supplying business working from home, has now bloomed into a full-scale operation, selling rare and unconventional plants from their brick and mortar shop located in Crystal Palace (London, UK)

Every plant is delivered with care - whether that’s in the post or from the shop - and comes with full instructions on how to keep your new plant baby alive.

 Ivy and the Wolf is for everyone - but especially for those who like unique and unconventional plants. 

The Vaults Collective

Starting as a pop-up mid pandemic, Sanne & Fay combined forces and opened The Vaults Collective.

Fay runs her bakery and cafe La Mouche Bakery, and Sanne the plant and homeware shop. Because plants can't solve all problems, that's why there's cake too!

Small businesses

Being a small business ourselves, we know how daunting it can be to get your name out. With this in mind, we offer a platform to other small businesses. We offer a large selection of independent makers, designers and their products. We have handmade plant pots, cards, herb kits and home accessories.


Sanne always had a keen eye for interior design and decoration, and with the vault, dreams of a homeware shop has come true. We offer small decorations like candles, vases, dried flowers and larger homeware like mirrors, lights and blankets. All curated and handpicked by Sanne.


Coming into the shop, you will find our team ready to answer any questions regarding your plant. We advice on care & maintenance, but also styling. Feel free to bring a picture of the spot or area you're looking to fill up with plants, and our team will be ready to help every step of the way!

Dog friendly

Both owners Sanne and Fay have dogs and Fay's Dolce is often spotted as the shop dog. We encourage everyone to bring their pups and have their polaroid taken!
