Hey! My name's Joe Bagley, and I'm the creator of ukhouseplants! I created this website to influence and teach people about houseplant care in a simplistic, standardised way. Each article is composed in the same format with top tips, care requirements, common issues and a whole load of other useful information, all within one document. I feel that having propagation tips just a scroll away from the general care advice is far better than having to navigate through an unfamiliar website. Each article takes around two hours to write, take photos and proofread - so please use/share the service as much as possible as there's A LOT of effort put into it! You may have noticed that I sometimes write 'us' or 'our' in some of the blogs; this is to make ukhouseplants sound more formal, but it's just me who's typed every letter so far...

I also wanted to make something to be proud of, and already ukhouseplants have done just that. As I received many messages via Instagram about how to care for a particular plant, I decided to create a website that could help everyone out, regardless of if they're on social media. Since May 2019, I've signed up to do a 'Joe's Houseplant of the Week' that airs on BBC Radio Leicester EVERY Sunday & Tuesday (1:10pm) to discuss a whole range of easy-to-find plants and how to care for them! If you'd like to listen to those interviews, hop over to BBC iPlayer, or scroll up to the 'Podcasts' section on this website.

Soon, I aspire to have my own houseplant shop so that I can share my love for plants and to work for myself finally. If reality allows it, ukhouseplants will continue to be an informative website that will still host a massive range of information but will also become my shop-Instagram to promote the new business. Although this is still years & years away, I've already started to sell terrariums and propagated plants (such as Spider Plants and Pineapple Pups) to start this whole adventure off, and to get to grips with the commercial side of things. I've always been environmentally conscious about my carbon footprint, so all of my soil is peat-free, and the deliveries that I make are via my electric car - even the number plate has nature through its veins - P144 NTS !

I hope that this website is useful for you, and if you still need plant-assistance, then I am only a message away on Instagram or by email. You can even sign up to the monthly newsletter that will be starting in April 2020, where you'll be first in line for in-season tips and somewhere to access fresh articles about plants, pests and much more. As you may have noticed, there are no adverts to clog up your time on the website; I haven't earned any money from this adventure so far, but buying me a coffee via this PayPal link would mean the world to me!

PLEASE tell your friends & share this website as much as possible on social media to keep ukhouseplants growing.

Yours sincerely,
Joe Bagley, the website creator of ukhouseplants! 🌱😀
