Create a garden inside your house with the lush greenery and flowers of houseplants, and you'll not only make your home look beautiful, but you'll also improve your quality of life. Research has shown that in an average room, just two or three houseplants picked from the range in our Petersfield garden centre improve air quality, pump feel-good oxygen back into the air and reduce stress.
In our garden centre in Petersfield, you will find beautiful architectural palms and ferns for a modern, minimalist look; or pretty African violets, delicate paperwhite daffodils, and fragrant stephanotis if shabby chic is more your style. Pick out a good-looking container for your houseplants from the range in our garden centre to really show off their beauty: in the right setting, the impossibly exotic flowers of orchids or the strange, waxy bloom of an anthurium can stop you in your tracks.
Houseplants like a bright spot out of direct sunlight and away from radiators. Mist regularly with water to keep humidity high - you'll find hand misters in our garden centre, along with liquid feed to keep them at their best all season long. To enjoy your indoor plant in your house for a long time, you must know what kind of care your houseplant needs. You can find these tips in our article ‘Looking after your houseplants’.

How to pot a houseplant?
We offer a lot of pots in different materials for your brand new houseplant. A beautiful big pot with a plant creates a fantastic effect in your house. It becomes a real eye-catcher in your interior. If you want to put a houseplant in a pot, you should pay attention to the following:
• Make sure the pot is waterproof, if this is not the case you can use a dish or inner cover.
• Always use a layer of hydro granules at the bottom of the pot, use about 1/3 of the pot at the bottom.
• The pot must be large enough for the plant, so keep in mind that the pot should be larger than the roots of the plant.
• The soil you use in your pot must match the plant you choose. Other soil products are available for each plant.
A good pot is essential for your plant. Not too big, not too small, but always with holes in the bottom. What is actually the right pot for your plant? You can ask our staff in Petersfield wich soil and pot matches your houseplant.
