About the Author

Laetitia Maklouf is a single, sexy girl-about-town (30) and a self-confessed plant-murderer who fell in love with plants a few years ago and now wants to share her passion with other gardening virgins. A green-fingered Nigella, she proves effortlessly that a life full of plants is the only one worth living. She studied horticulture at the Chelsea Physic Garden, lives in a flat in West London with her dog, Mr Pug, and dreams of a garden of her own one day.
