History of Madagascar Dragon Tree
Dragon trees first became a popular house plant back in the 1960s. Native to Madagascar these trees can reach heights of 15 feet however it grows pretty slow so will take a few years before you see any substantial growth.
Rooted in Mythology
Dating back thousands of years, it is believed a 100 head dragon named Ladon was slain by villagers and from its blood bloomed hundreds of trees which the locals called Dragon Trees.

I am very pleased with my Madagascan Dragon Tree. It makes a great addition to my display plants and is flourishing. It easy to take care of too!
Fantastic service, products all arrived in perfect condition and very quickly. Would recommend to anyone and everyone looking to buy beautifully scented and crafted candles, or plants for their zen palaces and those wishing to support small businesses.
Fast delivery & great products
I had a really great experience with with Earth and Vine. I ordered 3 plant potters, which came to around £45. The quality of the planters are really great and they have a contemporary vibe with natural textures that love.
The planters arrived in 3 business days as I ordered on a weekend, and we’re securely packaged so there was no broken ceramics to worry about!
100% would recommend!
The delivery was swift and I loved the personal touch. My elephant ear plant is in perfect condition, very happy with my order. Have ordered from other online plant stores but earth and vine's quality is top.
There’s nothing more I can say about the satin pothos. It’s an elegant, beautiful plant with gorgeous leaves. Service was great!
I bought the Swiss cheese plant about a month ago and I’ve falling completely in love with plants. That was my first plants as a beginner. I’ve now purchased 7 more plants, 4 from earth and vine. I can highly recommend the monstera and definitely earth and vine.
Calathea Medallion (Calathea Roseopicta)
Plant is great! It arrived with one leaf torn in the middle
It’s brilliant. Thank you. One of the leaves had torn/broken in the middle I guess in transit. But other than that so pleased!
I got this for someone as a gift, they really loved it. Can't wait to see it flower!
These smell amazing!
Nice addition to the collection, easy to maintain and brightens up the area. Looking forward to it in bloom

Bought 2 plants and 2 pots for my dad's birthday. They arrived super quickly, and he's really happy with them. Would definitely buy from Earth and Vine again :)
