(Picture: Boys With Plants)Millennials love plants, attractive people, and social media.
So it’s really not surprising that an Instagram account dedicated to hot men with plants became majorly successful.
In the last two years Boys With Plants has attracted more than 118,000 followers, who flock to double tap pictures of muscled men caring for their leafy pals.
Now, finally, the Instagram account has become the coffee table book it was always meant to be.
Out now in the UK, Boys With Plants is a book of 50 boys and the plants they love, captured in beautifully filtered photos accompanied by their vital stats – Instagram handle included.
Take a look at some of our favourite plant fans below.

‘We all start from somewhere and learn along the way,’ says Ben. ‘There might be times when your plants die, some of mine did too, but that is how I learned – so don’t be discouraged.’
Ben, we love you. And your corgi.
