This blog can be considered my attempt to infect other people with my plant obsession. I love plants, I think they’re fantastic and can’t really remember a time when I didn’t. People often ask me ‘Why plants?!’ in a manner I’m almost certain people who study, say, Meerkats or criminal psychology don’t come up against. It’s not even as if, unlike my geologist counter parts, I could make much money out of my obsession. Well, let me take you by the hand and show you ‘Why Plants’. They are surprising, underrated, endlessly innovative, freaky, dangerous, elegant, horrendously disgusting and all things in between. I hope this Blog manages to give you a tiny glimpse of that spectrum. Or at least mildly amuse you.
