I’d been stalling on bringing my fiddle leaf to the new house because I’ve heard they can get cranky when moved. Well today I did and it looks waaaay bigger in this house than it did in the big living room with 10’ ceilings at the old house 😂😂😂.
Look what just arrived safely in the post today all the way from Queensland! This little piece of beauty is an Alocassia Zebrina, and you can certainly see where the name comes from with those stunning patterned stems. Have heard that this species can be a bit fussy when it comes to looking after it, so interested to see where it’s happiest within the bungalow.
There are some people out there that just won’t pick up on clues you keep dropping during the festive season…
”I love plants but I just never have the time to order them online”
and they may smile and say “awe you will one day love”
And with that the hint flys over their head and away into oblivion.
So make it easy for them and drop your wishlist hint by tagging them below, simple really
and if they don’t realise then that all you want is a box of fancy plants delivered to your door, you may just have to hope that whatever they do buy can be refunded & you can then go buy your own plants...

Watering your houseplants from underneath is a fool-proof way to ensure that you don’t over water- most of us tend to have a heavy hand with the watering can! 😬 By setting the plant in a bowl it can absorb as much as it needs. 💧🌿

Freshly dusted! 🌟
Ficus Elastica aka Rubber tree or Rubber Plant 🌿
Did you know that your houseplants will love you even more if you dust them periodically? Just like our furniture, our plants collect dust-especially larger leafed ones like this guy. Wiping your plants with a damp cloth is an easy way to encourage your plant’s photosynthesis skills 🤓 its also a good way to spend time with your plant and check that all is well with leaf undersides 👍🏻

You’re looking at a natural antidepressant. I’m not going to eat any of these botanical specimens I found in the woods today, although several are edible. I’m referring to the process of collecting small nature finds when you walk in a green space. For several years I wondered why this made me feel better when I had grey days, days when I struggled with depression. I trained as a molecular cell biologist so I delved into academic papers to find out more. It seems that when we make nature collections we are triggering ancient foraging pathways and causing puffs of dopamine in our brains as I mentioned in my post a few days ago. This causes small bursts of elation and is gently addictive. Our cottage is *rather* full of feathers and stuff that fell off trees, but the immensely welcome side effect is that making seasonal collections like this helps to keep me well: it can help to keep the dark times at bay.

One of my favorite illusions to create is the multilevel mini landscape using slate and mosses. The end result looks like a lush mountainside ⛰🏞. If you could recreate any scene in nature what would it be?
There was a cold crisp tang in the air tonight, not the musty fug of earthiness emanating from damp days, but a smell noticeable by its absence. Star gazing, at least a consolation when the nights are longer and the sky more opaque.

This is my second book, a fully illustrated diary of my nature walks throughout a year, in the wood behind our cottage, on a Pembrokeshire beach and in an untouched wildflower meadow in Derbyshire. It is not only a diary of the wildlife I encounter though, it is a candid account of my mental health and how each step I take among trees and plants, each sighting of a gold crest or moment spent among wild bluebells helps to lift my spirits on difficult days. As a scientist I was interested in *how* nature can mend us: the mechanisms by which wild landscapes affect our bodies and minds and can be truly medicinal. My hope is that this book might encourage more people to take even short walks outside and to reconnect a little with nature. It really does help on the dark days.
It is full of my paintings, drawings, photographs and calligraphy, so that if you’re having a stressful time then curling up and simply looking at the pictures may help.
The Wild Remedy is published on 3rd January 2019 but you can pre-order it now (link in profile).
