Houseplants have massively increased in popularity over the last few years. As well as adding greenery and colour to your home, research has shown that they are also great for physical and mental health, as they can improve air quality, reduce stress and boost productivity – great for those working from home. Caring for plants also encourages us to slow down and be mindful, improving our mood and wellbeing.
A growing number of people are becoming plant parents, opting to look after houseplant babies rather than the real thing! And the choice of houseplants gets better all the time, with some distinctive varieties to look out for in 2021. Style trends include:
- Bold foliage – as seen on the Rubber Plant, Dracaena Marginata and Swiss Cheese Plant
- Unusual textures and colours – of the Weeping Fig and Monstera Obliqua
- Flowering houseplants – such as the Peace Lily or Orchids
- Small succulents – Aloe Vera & Cacti are very popular
Jeremy Hall, Group Plant Buyer at Squire’s Garden Centres said; “Houseplants are in high demand right now as they are perfect for adding greenery, colour and air purifying benefits to your living space or home office.
