Hands up if you've killed a plant? So has the author. It's no secret that we've all become plant obsessed, but do we really understand how to look after them? Nik Southern is not a Professor of Botany, but having run a florist and plant shop, Grace & Thorn, since 2011 she's learnt a few things along the way. How Not To Kill Your Plants is about taking the hocus-pocus out of plants and flowers and enabling you to understand a plant's needs in order to know where to place and how to style them, but most importantly how to keep them alive. Southern gets asked every type of question you can imagine and has written How Not To Kill Your Plants to answer them. Watering can down, it's time to go back to the roots.
After impulsively quitting her job in the city, Nik Southern founded Grace & Thorn in a studio in Dalston in 2011. Two shops (in Hackney and Brick Lane), tens of thousands of Instagram followers, and hundreds of sold out DIY planting and styling courses later Grace & Thorn has gathered a cult following amongst customers and brands alike. This is Nik's first book.
