Award-winning horticulturist Fran Bailey grew up on a cut flower nursery near York, where her Dutch father encouraged her love of all things botanical. After studying at the Welsh College of Horticulture she moved to London working as a freelance florist. Later she opened her first shop the Fresh Flower Company in South London expanding into houseplants with the opening of Forest in 2013, which she runs with the help of her daughters. Fran has written two other House Plant books in collaboration with the RHS. Visit forest.london or follow @forest_london on Instagram.
