Hibernation season is well and truly here. The temperature has dropped, the jumpers have come out and the clouds have become a little more grey. It might seem like you’ll have to give up on plants until Spring, but did you know that you can bring a piece of your garden indoors and enjoy lush greenery despite the cold?
Know Your Plants
The key to creating an indoor winter garden is doing your research and knowing which plants will thrive in dark and cold spaces.
Some varieties of indoor and winter-friendly plants, include:
- Devil’s Ivy
- Rubber Plant
- Fiddle Leaf Fig
- Zanzibar Gem
The beauty of plant varieties that are able to survive in dark areas, is that they are hardier and can usually withstand some neglect. However, it is important that you don’t get too complacent and abandon your plants completely.
With the heating on, be sure to up the watering a bit and some good quality plant food will help with new growth and development, we love the range from The Plant Runner, available in-store.
