THE YEAR OF THE HOUSEPLANTS 2016-17

WE STOCK A RANGE OF POPULAR GREEN HOUSEPLANTS - THESE ARE CHOSEN FOR THEIR EASE OF CARE! As we know how busy it can get and we often forget about our houseplants. Under or over watering is the common problem and so need to ensure your plants are in a pot with drainage holes so any excess water can run out. Then this plastic pot will sit into another pot with no holes - a POT COVER or onto a saucer to collect the excess water. Do not leave excess water sitting in this outer pot or saucer for longer than 2 hours.
