Time to take the outside in with a few new indoor additions. I love a lush, leafy green houseplant, especially in my kitchen. Having recently renovated our kitchen as well, thanks to lockdown, I had lots of new exciting places for new planters. That’s where my love for planters and home accessories came from. I absolutely love a nice planter, whether its cute and petit or big and bold. Nothing looks nicer than keeping your growing babies in a nice pot.
I have quite a collection of houseplants now, a few cuttings that my Mum has propagated for me, which have in fact grown like wildfire. They have grown so well I have managed to split them and repot them myself.
I often find I need varying sizes of pots and different accessories to help nurture my indoor garden. I sourced some beautiful planters from Sass & Belle and recently we have received a delivery from Burgon & Ball which included some gorgeous indoor watering cans and Glazed pots.
I often pick up plants from our local supermarket but I love to support our local garden centres too. My sister has recently brought her first family home so my Mum and I brought her a fabulous Monstera Cheese plant which is absolutely thriving. She added a moss pole and tied up some of the stems to train them upwards a little, she has really got the houseplant bug! So much so that she’s got a little propagation station, which I am most definitely fond of as I keep getting lots of ‘new babies’ to look after!
Finding the right position for your plants can be tricky, to much light and they wont like it, not enough and they wont like it, its all about finding the right balance. Don’t over water, don’t under water….. so much to remember, so much responsibility!! Houseplants bring a sense of calm and peacefulness to your home and often bring a sense of purpose to people, having something to focus on and look after.
Not only have we sourced some gorgeous pots, planters and accessories, we have also have a lovely collection of seagrass baskets which make lovely alternatives to house those boring plastic pots.
Start off small and let your love grow, bring the outdoors in and care for your lush leafy greens……with the added bonus of a gorgeous planter or two!
