A little green goes along way...

Indoor Plants are trending...

Indoor Plants are surging back on trend and with the 2017 Pantone Colour of the year being 'Greenery'...it's time to get on board! Vertical Gardening, indoor walls and apartment living have seen gardeners around the world turning to indoor foliage. Indoor plants can help brighten up the living room, office and add colour to the bathroom or kitchen, whilst cleaning the air and bringing life to any room.

Many studies have shown that adding indoor plants to the home or office can have a dramatic effect on health and well being.  Plants have a calming effect and give a feeling of optimism.  They can help reduce stress, blood pressure, fatigue, headaches, dry skin and cold related illnesses. Studies have also shown adding indoor foliage to an environment can help increase productivity, memory retention and creativity.

Here are a couple of our Indoor favourites:

Zanzibar Gem - Tolerates low light and lack of water and always has a beautiful glossy green leaf. Thrives in a pot and will look stunning in any room of your house.

Parlour Palm - Elegant mini palm with attractive light green foliage. Loves growing in a pot and looks great in a well lit bathroom.

Mosaic Plant - 'Fittonia' is a beautiful plant with delicately veined, deep green leaves.  Colours also come in pink and white. Perfect little plant for frog and fairy gardens.
