Sarah, also known as @theplantrescuer, is a self-taught houseplant obsessive who firmly believes every plant deserves a happy life. Her determination to see beyond the 'perfect plant' and to rescue unloved plants makes her the go-to guide.
From a young age Sarah was brought up to appreciate nature, learning about the outdoors from her grandfather, who worked as a groundsman on a Scottish estate. After studying art in Edinburgh, she moved to London and became a freelance picture editor for The Sunday Times, Guardian, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.
In 2015, Sarah's love for nurturing living things evolved to include houseplants. Having adopted some non-flowering orchids that had been dumped by a local store, a new-found passion for rescuing ailing and abandoned plants took hold. As @theplantrescuer on Instagram she has helped thousands of people understand how to make their plants happy and what to do if something goes wrong. Her broadcast and print appearances range from BBC Gardeners' World to The Times.
She lives in Hertfordshire with her husband, daughter, cats, dog and hundreds of rescue plants, which she somehow still manages to sneak into their modest semi-detached house.
