Our Indoor Plant Range

There’s a large range of plants which can thrive in an indoor environment, however care is needed when selecting plants to ensure they will do well in a particular location. The main consideration is the amount of natural and artificial light they will receive. All other considerations affecting the health of a plant such as watering, fertilising and pruning will be handled by our service staff.

Before deciding on which plants will best suit your work space, one of our team will come out to your business to discuss your options and make recommendations based on your tastes and the amount of light available.

If your work space is particularly poorly lit or you’d like a particular plant in your office that needs more light than is available, we can work around this by regularly rotating plants from your work space to the nursery to ensure they remain healthy and lush.

The below images will give you an idea of the most common types of plants suitable for an indoor environment. Or, better yet, get in touch and we can start discussing your options.
