Tales from Nagaland

This is a man from Nagaland.

Oooh where's that?

Why we should all have lots of plants

I’m a terrible plant-mother. Really the very worst. I just can’t keep them alive. But there’s one plant from our very first shoot which despite my persistent neglect, will not die. It’s been my trusty side-kick for 4 years now, and continues to flourish and delight me at my desk. It’s a true miracle.
