I have always believed in the positive power of plants and 5 years ago began on a journey to prove just how much they could make a difference to our health, happiness and wellbeing.
For centuries, we’ve used plants from the natural world in medicines, for nutrients in our food and as way of escapism from the stressors of daily life.
I wanted to take this one step further and launch a campaign to promote plant power for everyone to enjoy; whether that’s the simple sight of plant bringing a smile to your face or the pleasure in planting something for the first time.
This campaign has been running now for 5 years and today it’s still highlighting the goodness of green spaces in national newspapers, through my blogs and to my newsletter audience, urging them to get involved.
It could be that the sight of a Christmas tree in the corner of the room fills you with joy over Christmas, or that a red rose on Valentines Day brings you happiness but, however you tap into it, the positive power of plants is abundant.
To that end, in 2015, I began working towards proving that fact by starting a quest to find the happiest plant, so read on to find out the results.
