Houseplants and their health benefits

With more people in the UK renting their homes and spending less money & energy on their gardens as a result, more and more people are doing their gardening indoors.

This rise in indoor greenery is great news for your well being. Houseplants don’t just brighten the place up, they bring with them a whole range of health benefits – and that includes boosting emotional and mental health along with more obvious physical benefits. Houseplants can improve air quality, lift your mood and even reduce the chances of you getting ill!
