  • Since 2020, Will has cared for 58 houseplants and has plans for several more.
  • In the summer, he loves to tend to his ever-growing vegetable garden.
  • His tallest plant is a Fiddle Leaf Fig named Fiona, which stands just over seven feet.


As a writer for House Digest, Will has been researching and investing in sustainable gardening with an emphasis on rainwater collection and hydroponics. His life goal is to one day have a south-facing solarium attached to the back of his house, providing edible plants all year round. Will has been teaching high school English for more than a decade. When he's not providing feedback on papers about Romeo and Juliet, he spends his time in local greenhouses or nurseries or simply basking in the glow of his jungle.


Will has a bachelor's in English and a master's in the art of teaching from the University of New Hampshire.
