Peace Lily – From £5.99

An ideal choice for a position away from direct sunlight. Peace lilies have been proven to combat harmful household chemicals and remove mould spores from the air.

Secrets of success

Position the plant in the semi-shade in summer and bright light in the winter. An average room temperature is ideal. Keep the compost moist and reduce watering a little through the winter months. Occasional misting of the leaves is recommended.

Peperomia – From £5.49

This diverse range of plants are grown mainly for their attractive foliage which may be fleshy, quilted, corrugated, smooth or hairy, green or variegated. Some are even striped like a watermelon!

Secrets of success

Peperomias are easy to care for in average room conditions but do need the compost to dry out a little between watering. Only re-pot after several years.

Scindapsus – From £5.49

These beautiful foliage plants are grown for their attractive and often marbled foliage that comes in a wide range of colours and can be grown as either a climber or trailing plant

Secrets of success

Golden or variegated foliage varieties require more light than their green leaved counterparts. Water more in the spring and summer, letting the compost dry out slightly between waterings.

Spider Plant – From £4.99

This easy to grow houseplant has enjoyed popularity for many years. Quick to grow, it can be placed anywhere in the house

Secrets of success

Place in a well lit spot and water liberally, cutting down slightly in the winter
