Book Description

A simple, stylish and complete guide for any plant owner.

About the Author

From a young age Sarah was brought up to appreciate nature, learning about the outdoors from her grandfather, who worked as a groundsman on a Scottish estate. After studying art in Edinburgh, she moved to London and became a freelance picture editor for The Sunday Times, Guardian, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.

In 2015, Sarah's love for nurturing living things evolved to include houseplants. Having adopted some non-flowering orchids that had been dumped by a local store, a new-found passion for rescuing ailing and abandoned plants took hold. As @theplantrescuer on Instagram she has helped thousands of people understand how to make their plants happy and what to do if something goes wrong. Her broadcast and print appearances range from
BBC Gardeners' World to The Times.

She lives in Hertfordshire with her husband, daughter, cats, dog and hundreds of rescue plants, which she somehow still manages to sneak into their modest semi-detached house.

Sarah is a member of The Garden Media Guild and the creator of @theplantrescuer. She dedicates her time to helping thousands of people worldwide with their houseplant problems. A self confessed plant activist, Sarah believes all plants deserve our care and respect and with a little knowledge everyone can grow healthy houseplants.

'We live in a throwaway society in which it’s easier and quicker to replace rather than repair. We’ve moved so far away from the ‘make do and mend’ mentality of previous generations that we tend to chuck anything away, from faulty appliances and out-of-style clothing to vegetables and plants that are deemed ‘imperfect’. A culture obsessed with perfection leads to millions of healthy plants being discarded. They are discarded by the grower, the wholesaler, the shop owner and by us in our own homes – nature is being binned because it doesn’t meet our impossibly high standards'

My aim is to encourage others to buy the neglected plants, not the perfect ones and to show that with a little time, effort, and knowledge, they can recover and thrive. Saving a plant from being thrown away is taking a stand against the needless and wasteful binning of healthy plants simply because they don’t live up to our ideals.
