Love Island is back on our screens, and although I’m not an avid follower of the programme, I’ve been dragged into it this year by a friend – and I admit, I’m kind of addicted.
But when I’m not following the drama, I’m spotting the landscaping choices of the villa (this year it’s based in Cape Town, South Africa). I’ve already seen a lot of Agapanthus, which is perfect for South Africa’s climate. But how many different plants can you name in host Laura Whitmore’s entrance video below?
