With many of us staying at home, and often with limited access to the outdoors in our densely-packed city, what better time to get to know your houseplants better? Research has shown that being in greener spaces, even indoors, improves mood and reduces stress. And if like me you’re working from home, a greener workspace improves productivity, attention span, and task speed.
Just before Christmas, a new florist Green Hands of Southsea opened on Castle Road which is when I first met Monika Wood. The outside was being painted green which has been a favourite colour of mine for about 3 years and I wanted to venture in when the doors opened to see what kind of style and focus this new florist had to offer.
