Why indoor plants? 

Breathe easier with increased oxygen levels in your home.

Keep respiratory distress at bay! Plants realise 97% of water they take in as water vapour creating a more humid environment.

Purify your air! Plants remove toxins in our air by pulling contaminants into the soil and convert to food for the plant.

Sharpen your focus! A study at the royal college of agriculture in Cirencester, England found that students had a higher attendance and demonstrated 70% greater awareness when taught in a room with plants.

TOP TEN PLANT CARE TIPS:
Avoid annoying little flies by being careful not to tip tea and coffee into plant containers. The sugars left in the compost make it an ideal breeding ground for sciarid flies. 
Use trough planters as natural screens. They reduce noise and are useful as barriers to separate walkways etc. 
One of the most common causes of plant death is over-watering.
Your plants need water, light and warmth to survive. So when you’re off on holiday, don’t forget about your green friends. Make sure that someone else knows to keep the blinds open and the thermostat up. 
Peat free compost is suitable for all your indoor plants.
Variegated plants (featuring leaves with white edges or white flecks) often need more light than their green cousins. Keep them nearer to a window so that they can get all the light that they need. 
Plants acclimatise slowly to different surroundings by changing their leaf orientation and structure. If you can, try not to move them around, as they may not adapt as easily as you think. 
Plants are proven to reduce stress.  
You can still have plants where space is at a premium. Some of the latest designs use tall containers to show off the plants, whilst taking up as little floor space as possible. 
Regularly prune your plants to stop them becoming ‘leggy’. Once they’ve lost the foliage on their lower branches, it’s very difficult to get it to return.
