1

Check for sad plant signs

Leaf damage, pests, and other pollutants can cause a whole host of problems to your plant pals. Make sure to get to know your plant pals and check in regularly for any changes and to ensure they are healthy and happy.

2

Window watching

Most plants love being next to the window - watching the birds and passersby. But remember, windows can amplify the sun’s heat, so try and shade your interior plants during the hotter days to stop them from drying out or dying.

Some plants adore sunlight, while others love the shade. Check out Plant Care A-Z to work out which light conditions will help your plant to thrive!

4

Avoid overwatering

The biggest killer of plants is overwatering. It's far easier to revive a plant that's under-watered than overwatered. If you’re ever unsure, always remember less is more.

5

Plant food

Adding fertiliser can make the difference between an average-looking plant and a stunner that takes your breath away. Don’t be afraid to add a little sprinkle or a few drops during the summer months.

6

A little pamper goes a long way

Everybody needs a little TLC from time to time, and your plants are no exception. Prune, deadhead and style your plants every now and then to keep them in the freshest condition. Oh, and give them a spin now and again...that way the leaves will get equal amounts of sunlight and won't get jealous :)

7

No sharing a cuppa with your plant

Try to avoid emptying your cups of tea into your plant pots. While this might sound like something someone might do in an office, it’s essential to avoid this; especially if you have sugar since little bugs will love to feed on the stuff. Unfortunately, your plants will not...

8

Choose the right plant for your space & lifestyle

There’s plenty of choices out there when it comes to plants. Some require lots of attention and nurturing whereas others can mostly be left to their own devices. Check and consider your schedule and how much time you can spend on maintenance before choosing the newest member of your plant family.
