More often that ever we are living in smaller houses and apartments. What better way to bring nature inside than with house plants. Plants look nice but they also help keep us focussed.
Forget social media and technology for a while and, instead, spend some time with your plants.
Plants help us breathe
Plants release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. Along the way they absorb toxins, purify air, and contribute to our breathing. As our parents say, “What’s good for the body, is good for the brain.”
Not enough can be said about the the health benefits of tending plants. A little time with your house plant usually relieves stress and generally has a calming effect.
Scent for sleep
Don’t forget about scented plants such as gardenia, lavender, lilies and jasmine. They are fabulous to have around the home. Remember, too, the many plants contain essential oils which help promote a good night’s sleep.
At Susan Avery we stock a large range of seasonal, flowering and green plants. You can always call us to find out what’s in store or we can source particular plants for you.
