Just because you've only got houseplants doesn't mean you don't have the gardening spirit - I look upon myself as an indoor gardener. - Sara Moss-Wolfe
With one of the best house plant sections anywhere in the region, our own expert Lizzie (who’s always busy by the way), makes sure all our plants are fresh, good quality, full of colour and superb value, together with a full range of specialist composts, feeds and tools to look after them. You’ll find so much more than you might expect. Exotic plants? No problem. Cacti, Bonsai and Orchids for a start, or for something really unusual explore our weird and wonderful range of carnivorous plants. Houseplants are a wonderful way to add colour to our home and make the perfect gift too. But as well as looking good, they bring a number of health benefits:-
Plants help to:
• clean the air inside your home • absorb toxins • boost humidity levels • dampen noise • create calm and well-being
Detox Your Home
Let’s quickly explore some of those benefits. Ferns and palms for example are fantastic for absorbing harmful toxins. Or how about the graceful Peace Lily or bright Gerbera for a little Zen? Just remember to keep them fed, watered and dust-free and they’ll pay you back in pots!
Lizzie's Top Buy
Second best won’t do for our Plant Manager Lizzie who has a passion for exotic orchids and has developed a stunning collection of colours and varieties. The stylish Phalaenopsis is one of the most popular and because it’s easy to look after and with long lasting blooms, it makes a spectacular gift. "People are put off because they think orchids are difficult to look after. But don’t be scared!" says Lizzie.
