“I had no green thumbs at all”

That didn’t stop her starting Sprinklr, a business specialising in organic garden plants. Why organic garden plants? Because what not many people know is that many plants sold at garden centres are laced with pesticides – even those labelled ‘pollinator-friendly’. So instead of boosting soil biodiversity and helping bees, butterflies and other insects, you’re actually harming the very ecosystem you want to help.
