“I’ve always loved plants,” says Saffron de la Rouviere who, at last count, had 450 plants in her house and greenhouse.
“My mother was an avid gardener and as a young kid I would watch her at work in the garden. I went through a succulent craze in my early twenties but during the drought in 2017 I decided to garden indoors rather than outdoors. I was battling to keep my garden alive and the few indoor plants I had gave me a wonderful sense of relief and calm. They were my sanctuary from the drought.”
