Wild Plantage


Green Living with Nellie

Hi, I’m Nellie.

I have a confession to make: I’ve killed a Begonia or two (and almost gave up on houseplants).

Over the years, I’ve learned a trick or two when it comes to caring for my houseplants. This blog is a collection of my plant care tips, as well as home decor inspiration. Join me on my journey to create a green lifestyle worth living.

I’m also an avid traveler, in fact I am a travel writer and have published a few books on travel. Check out my travel blog, Wild Junket.
