We all know that having a houseplant or two (or even three) around our homes adds that splash of seasonal colour and greenery.
And with more of us spending time at home, it seems many houseplant collections are growing.
Many companies are now selling houseplant subscription boxes, so it’s never been easier to turn your inside space into an outside haven - all without leaving the house.
How do you choose your houseplant subscription?
You might prefer succulents to shrubs or hardy plants that don’t require too much attention. And when it comes to receiving your exciting new deliveries, you might be looking for something every month or even every week.
Whatever plants you’re looking for, there is sure to be a subscription box to suit your needs.
