Last time we said goodbye, it was to some of our old propagation station designs: Paisley, Clementine, Florence, Ella Mae and Madeline. Sadly, this time we're saying goodbye for good. We're closing down Cooper&Smith.
We started handcrafting propagation stations in the middle of 2020 when our careers as a musician and makeup artist were put on hold due to the pandemic. Now, we're fortunate enough to be returning to those careers and simply don't have the time or energy to continue running our beloved little business.
We are so grateful to all of you who have supported us, or shared our business and products with your family and friends. We hope your little plant babies are thriving in your Cooper&Smith propagation stations.
We still have all sizes of Fleur and Arwen in stock, so to give them the farewell party they deserve they're on sale now at 50% off. This is the perfect opportunity for you to get a head start on Christmas gifts at some very special prices.
Lovely item safely packaged. Bought as a thank you gift for a friend who loves her plants. So much nicer than a bouquet with a short life span! Highly recommend.
I love the design and look of the propagation station. The size is perfect too.
Really love my little propagating station, the begonia cuttings are doing really well!
My girlfriend was very happy with the station! Looks lovely, can easily sit on a window sill
Great service and product.
Looks and feels great, and easy functionality. Great size.
My wife loves her indoor plants and was wrapped to be given a new way to enjoy them, trying her hand at propagating
Beautiful station- sits happily on my bookshelf!
These little stations are just lovely! They look so pretty and are small enough that they can be placed almost anywhere around the house. Plus we receive useful tips and ideas via email from the lovely Amy. It even came with a personal greeting card. I cant recommend the product and the people enough.
Brought the trio as a Christmas gift and it is loved! It arrived beautifully packaged and is already being put to great use!
Purchased the Fleur set of two for my sister in law for Christmas. She loves plants but had to rehome them all before moving up to Brisbane from down south. She was so excited to open the propogation station and get started on rebuilding her plant family. The website was easy to use and everything arrived well packed and intacked. Definitely would purchase again :)
I bought the propagation set for my daughter for Christmas and she loved it. She can't wait to get home to use it. The package arrived extremely well packed and delivery was fast considering the Christmas post. Very happy!!
This was a Christmas present that is much loved. Stylish vessels for new growth.
Very easy to put together, excellent quality. Fast delivery
Fleur is great. I have the double and single set up and they look amazing 🤩
The Cooper&Smith collection of propagation stations allow you to grow your own plant cuttings in water. You can then transfer them to soil or keep them in your propagation station as a permanent home.
Handcrafted in Australia, we use stunning natural timbers which are hand-stamped with the signature Cooper&Smith double-leaf brand and finished with a natural Australian beeswax polish.
Plant propagation is the process of growing new plants from seeds, cuttings or other plant parts. Cooper&Smith Propagation Stations allow you to propagate plant cuttings in water. This is our favourite method of plant propagation because it is easy, fun and our water propagation stations look stunning in your home or workspace.
Plant propagation begins with obtaining a plant cutting. These might be from existing plants you have at home, offcuts you’ve been gifted from friends and family, or sick plants that you want to try and save.
The plant cutting is submerged in water and placed somewhere it receives natural sunlight so photosynthesis can occur. In a few months, new roots will develop and the propagated plant cutting can be transferred to soil to continue growing. Alternatively, some varieties of plants can be left in water permanently.
