Adding some greenery to your space can boost your interior and even improve your health. So whether you’re a plant pro (hi Craig) or a novice who’s still struggling to keep that cheese plant alive, read on for our tips to give your botanical beauties the homes they deserve.
1. Choose the right pot
Whether you spend your days tending to a needy fiddle fig or have a hardy cactus that barely needs watering, your plants deserve a good-looking pot. How to choose? First, get the dimensions right. Typically, that means sizing up – you want to give your greenery space to grow so it’s better to go bigger. If you fancy some shine and your plants are strictly indoor types, you can’t beat a touch of brass. Into all things retro? Rattan is having a moment right now, and we’re here for it. Still not sure which pots (or plants) to pick? Don’t worry – we’ve done the hard work for you with this pre-curated set from Bloombox Club.
2. Take things to new heights
Next up, it’s time to think about styling. A great way to put the spotlight on your stems and add interest to your space? Elevate your greenery. Afia’s made from lightweight fibre cement with angular acacia wood legs – it’ll bring that Mediterranean mood to your home with minimal effort. Or if your greenery’s growing fast, opt for long, trough-style planters like Noor and Echo, which come with accompanying stands.
3. Space savers
If you’re struggling for space, keep everything together with a compact plant shelf. Agota’s tiered design makes it the perfect spot to display that curated collection of succulents. Betula’s also a great option thanks to its narrow silhouette and small footprint. And as for the great outdoors? If you’re a big fan of climbing plants (who doesn’t love wisteria?), but don’t have tonnes of room, grow up rather than out with this wall planter by Nardi. It comes in two sizes and the resin panels will guide your stems as they grow.
