100 Sunflowers
100 sunflowers

100 Sunflowers is a project I created to facilitate donations from the plant loving community to UNICEF in order to help Ukranian families in need.

The project, which raised over £500 on its launch day alone, consisted of a special design depicting 100 colourful sunflowers, printed on merchandise such as t-shirts, sweaters and tote bags, with 100% of the profit going to charity.

The project is ongoing, and profits will continue to be donated to UNICEF for as long as the products are in stock.

Lilacs by Naomi Slade

Loved and lauded, lilacs are back in vogue. Whether gathered in lavish armfuls for the house or flourishing in the garden, their timeless perfume fills the air and they are an essential part of the spring season – fleeting, fabulous and instantly recognisable.

Following on from Dahlias, Hydrangeas and Lilies, Lilacs is the fourth ‘flowers’ book in the series, written by gardening expert and journalist Naomi Slade and with bespoke images from leading photographer Georgianna Lane. It combines a visual feast with information on selected cultivars and practical tips for growing and enjoying the iconic blooms at home.

Available from all good bookshops. Signed copies can be ordered from www.naomislade.com/shop

This book, written by Matthew Pottage, is an excellent guide to gardening while keeping your landlord happy. It comes complete with projects, inspiration and handy tips tailored to those who rent, and even considers tighter budgets and busy schedules.

No, I don’t want to follow a colour scheme, HBU? 😈 I recently planted up a “fluoro garden” for my good friends at Selecta one], as we celebrated the high definition end of their colour spectrum! 🌈 There’s often so much chat about choosing the right colours, will they compliment, won’t they compliment? But sometimes, you just want to have pure, unadulterated colour, and LOTS OF IT! Our Kermit green window box by @getpotted_com features Selecta one] sun-lover Osteospermum Purple Sun & Tropic Sun, with honey-scented Bidens, and I love it! The shirt is by @asos and the garage door paint by @bandq_uk, in case you’re wondering 😉 ... See MoreSee Less

Good Morning! 💙 Here’s my favourite houseplant right now, and it’s a flowering bulb! It’s Lachenalia Aqua Lady. Super easy to grow from a bulb- planted about 8 weeks ago, and watered minimally. The colours are utterly sparkling, and don’t need any hint of a filter! I’m hoping I get a few more stems, as right now it’s just one per bulb 😊#Lachenalia #LachenaliaAquaLady #UnusualBulbs #SouthAfricanBotany ... See MoreSee Less
