House plant care

We recommend misting your house plant regularly with water. Our homes tend to have very drying air especially in the colder months when we are using central heating. Many house plants are native to quite humid countries. Feeding house plants every 2 – 4 weeks in the growing season will encourage strong and healthy growth as well as encouraging flowers. Most house plants will require re-potting every 2 years and is best done in the spring. Watering varies from plant to plant. Some may require being kept moist ware as others prefer a good soak of water weekly. Please ask a member of staff for advice on specific plant care and watering routines.
