When I was younger, I went to B&Q with family and the plant section quickly caught my eye and I brought home a tiny Venus Fly Trap and red Bromeliad. I was clueless about looking after them (I can’t remember that I was actually worried about keeping them alive, and I’m not sure that I […]

Bristol Botanic Garden
