Meet the Author!
Hey! My name's Joe Bagley, THE HOUSEPLANT DOCTOR™, author/owner of ukhouseplants.com! (Instagram: @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 webpage. 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 three 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. From May 2019, I've featured in many shows with BBC's Radio Leicester, including 'Joe's Houseplant of the Week' and being part of the 'Down to Earth' team. I have also appeared on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 5 and twice on Gardeners' World (S12 E17, seventeen minutes in) to showcase my collection and knowledge! I currently run successful a potting mix online store, along with being a presenter for BBC Gardeners' World Live.
I hope this website is useful for you, but if you still need plant-assistance, I'm only a call away on my 1-to-1 Calls
service. PLEASE tell your friends & share this website
as much as possible on social media to keep ukhouseplants growing strongly!
