Houseplants For Well-Being
Summer seems a long way away, especially after the Christmas decorations have been taken down and everything looks a little bare and forlorn. So thank goodness there are houseplants to cheer us up and bring a splash of greenery and colour to our inside spaces.
With perfect timing, January’s National Houseplant Week not only celebrates our green fronded friends but is also a great retail opportunity, bridging the gap between Christmas and the frantic run up to Valentine’s Day.
This time of year can also be difficult mentally; Monday, 16th January has been described as ‘Blue Monday’, supposedly the most depressing day of the year, due to a combination of post-Christmas blues, dark nights and unpaid credit bills landing on the doormat! It makes sense then to focus on selling plants which have been proven to benefit health and well-being.
