Celebrate National Houseplant Appreciation Day

Is your house feeling a bit bare now you’ve un-decked the halls? Have the lights, trees and tinsel left a hole in your interiors? Why not brighten up your home with a piece of living décor this National Houseplant Appreciation Day?

Remember, not only do they look beautiful and add a touch of nature to your space, but houseplants also have numerous benefits for your health and well-being. From improving air quality by filtering out toxins, to improving mood and productivity; filling your space with plants has been statistically proven to reduce stress and improve your mental and physical health.

Convinced? Go ahead, get green-fingered by treating yourself to houseplant from one of Salisbury’s great plant & flower shops:

Captive Worlds

Looking for something a little bit higher tech? Something between a fine art installation and a house plant? Look no further than the awesome Captive Worlds. Specialists in Aquascaping and Terrarium design, the team at Captive Worlds opened in 2021 after turning a hobby into their dream business venture. Why not head on down and chat to one of the incredible specialists on the team about all things terrariums, aquariums and paludariums – they’ll help you with supplies and design but can also create and install bespoke builds for you too.

Botanic Folk @ Brown Street

This beautiful plant pop-up has found its new winter-time home at Brown Street. Head behind the wonky yellow door and discover the amazing array of houseplants as well as the gorgeous pots and merch stocked (some of which are made by owner, entrepreneur, and all-round creative queen Charlie!).

LAH KOH Plant Swap

If you’re trying to save your pennies (maybe because you’ve already spent a small fortune on your in-door houseplant jungle like us…) then how about heading over to Lah Koh on the first Sunday of every month for their Plant Swap. Held 2pm-3pm each month, houseplant lovers can bring cuttings and plants they’ve fallen out of love with and exchange for a new plant!
