Get Help With Interior Design And House Plants

Many of us house plant lovers want nothing more than to be surrounded by lush green life in our homes.


But knowing how to design our interiors so that our house plants both do well and look aesthetically pleasing is challenging.


Plants are not ornaments so although we may love how a Monstera looks by our South facing window placing it there will result in its leaves turning yellow and their edges black.  

Designing your interior space with house plants in mind not only needs to take into account their light requirements it also needs to be informed by their sensitivity to humidity and temperature as well as by their growth habits. 


There is so much potential for including plants in your vision for your space because there is a plant for every situation, you just need to find the perfect one. 


That is where we are here to help. 

Your choice also needs to be informed by how much time, energy and effort you want to choose to invest in your indoor garden. 


Is your heart set on a lush jungle feel or a yearning for a low-maintenance but architecturally stunning collection?  


Either way, or both, we can guide you to the right plants for you. 

We specialise in providing consultations and advice on house plants for offices and homes. We can help you with your interior design plans and can help you achieve your vision of what you want your home to look and feel like.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)About House Plants

Below, you can find answers to some frequently asked questions about house plants. Don’t forget to check our blog and FAQ pages to find out more.

How Often Should You Water House Plants?

House plants come from a very wide range of habitats from deserts to humid tropical rainforests. So each has its own watering needs. When you choose your plant gain an understanding of the conditions it adapted to in the wild & strive to emulate these by the way you look after that particular plant in your home.  


For example, plants adapted to desert environments, like cacti, may only require watering every couple of months whilst ferns adapted to moist riverside environments may require watering every week.

How Do I Stop Flies In House Plants?

If you notice small black flies around your house plants these are probably Fungus Gnats which hatch from larvae on the surface of the growing medium and are most common in houseplants which prefer their growing medium to remain moist.


There are a number of ways to tackle these:

  • Remove & replace the top 3 cm of the growing medium. Fungus gnats lay on the top of the growing medium so replacing it removes the un-hatched larva. 

  • Top dress using gravel to discourage the adults from laying eggs on the top of the growing medium. 

  • Use sticky fly traps to attract & trap the adults. 

  • Buy some Steinernema feltiae nematodes which will consume the Fungus Gnat larva. These are widely available from online suppliers. 


If you’ve only got a few house plants, try growing a sundew (Drosera) nearby, as these sticky carnivorous plants are very good at trapping fungus gnats.

What Compost Is Best For House Plants?

House plants come from a wide range of environments and the diverse range of mediums in which they will thrive are a reflection of this. 


Some, like desert-dwelling plants, require a very fast-draining medium with low levels of fertility whereas others, such as begonias, love moisture-retentive and humus-rich growing mediums.   


You can find specialist mixes or make your own informed by the origins of the plant you want to care for.  Growing mediums are combinations of organic and none organic matter (such as perlite, grit, sand etc) depending on the needs of the plant.

Where Can I Buy House Plants Near Me?

House plants are increasingly popular and there is a wide range of places which sell them but if you are looking for something special we would always recommend looking for specialist house plant sellers like ourselves. 


Here you are more likely to find something unusual & people who can give you expert advice as to what fits your needs. 


They should also be able to assure you that the plants have not been hot-housed and therefore will easily make the transition to your home. 


They should also be willing to provide follow-up care and guidance.  If you’re looking for house plants in Liverpool or Merseyside we can help, though we ship all over the country.

Can You Take Plants With You When You Move House In The UK?

Of course! Anyone who really loves plants can enable them to live for years, if not decades and therefore wouldn’t consider for a moment leaving them behind for a moment when they move. 


There are risks in this upheaval as, depending on how long they have been growing where they are, they can be vulnerable to transition shock. 


However the closer you can match their new location, in terms of light, humidity and temperature, to their original one the more comfortably they will make the move.
