“I live in a one-bed apartment overlooking a cutlery factory in Sheffield. I can see the hills of the Peak District from my balcony but that’s as close to green as I get because I’m a few floors up. My resolution is to fill my modest little home with as much as I can – I should think I’ve probably reached the limit for indoors now, so I’ve moved onto the outside seen as the weather is being a little kinder of late.
Most of my plants are from family, local florists and nurseries that I visit – some are rogue plants that I’ve taken cuttings of and managed to grow into bigger versions and there's one or two from people I’ve met on Instagram.
They’ve taught me a lot, surprise me endlessly (particularly the Tradescantia and the Oxalis) and although I don’t have favourites I do quite like the ones that would be more suited to a sand dune instead of my balcony.”
