Not Killing Plants
Plants have long been a thing I've loved, I definitely feel old before my time, my inner granny is in full force when it comes to plants in interiors 👵🏻. I love the freshness they bring to a space - only one problem... keeping them alive! I do try to remember to water them as often as I can but then sometimes I end up over watering too (shout out to ma low maintenance ikea cacti which have survived through the lot!) Geo Fleur who I've worked with in the past were lovely enough to send me the book 'A Guide to Indoor Gardening' it's got loads of really nice ideas on how to style plants and even DIY tips on making your own planters etc; makes for a great coffee table book!
'Houseplants offer the perfect solution to the urban dweller, lacking in space – indoor and outdoor – and in Living With Plants, botanical-stylist, Sophie Lee, shows you simple but innovative ways to make your home gorgeously green. Starting with the basics, learn how to pick the right plant for your home (and specifically what room), what levels of sunlight your plant needs and the best space for your plants to thrive.
