After a career as a care worker, BON Lifestyle’s Beryl Beardmore decided it was time to care for herself.
“It was my son telling me I needed to do my own thing,” she says. “Something that nurtured me.”
There was no doubt about it. It had to be houseplants.
“It comes from my grandmother – I picked up all my hints and tips from her. I just enjoy watching them thrive,” Beryl says, stroking the leaves of a particularly buoyant peperomia.
“Opening right in the middle of Covid wasn’t easy. But the community has been on board from day one.
"We’re all here to support each other.”
