Welcome to RandoPlants – a place to learn about medieval ethnobotany!
Here you will find macro plant photography, celtic knotwork art, and the history of botany in medieval Europe.
Humans have a long history with plants – far bigger an older than simply what houseplants we grow or how we garden. Plants are a big part of our culture, tied up in our lore, driving our history. Here you’ll find new information and ways of existing with plants – while also learning more about them, and how historically people have interacted with them.

I am an amateur botanist with a big interest in plants, art and history. I’ve spent a lot of time learning to make puppets, create celtic art, and how to access all kinds of educational materials. I’ve been building some side blogs for a few years about different subjects. Doing this, I’ve learned a lot and condensed my never-ending list of projects I want to accomplish down to a few manageable ones. So now I’m forging ahead with a lengthy project on medieval botany, a podcast about every sort of pumpkin, and in the near future a puppet show!
In the meantime, check out my side blogs on specific topics to get more frequent content!
Where I take little macro photos, and talk about what planty things are exciting in that moment.
Where I celebrate Halloween year round!
Where I share things I’m learning about Celtic art, culture, and history.
