Hi There!

I’m Saffron. With over 400 indoor plants, I’ve found my passion in life and I want to share that happiness with as many people as possible. I blog among other things about what it’s like to live in a jungle house, raising a toddler to be plant friendly and the South African plant community.

With a passion about expanding that community, I started Saffron’s Garden Plant Club – a subscription based service that surprises members with a new plant and plant-related gift each month.

South Africa is home to many plant lovers and entrepreneurs and I’m always happy to make new friends, if you have any questions or just want to reach out, I’d love to hear from you.

I’ve loved being a part of the Saffron’s Garden Plant Club community. As a hobbyist, Saffron has taught me so much and brought incredible new plants into my home. I learn something new each month and I love that she’s there to provide tips and tricks when I need a little help.
