As a small child I ate a poisonous indoor plant which I think is the reason why for so many years I was very anti the indoor plant, but alas I have come around and even find myself hunting down the illustrious and illusive fiddle leaf fig. So as the cooler months approach and you’re spending less time outdoors why not think about bringing the garden indoors with my top 5 indoor plants.

The strong trend towards indoor plants is not only an aesthetic one, with a focus on green building architecturally, indoor plants can help improve the air quality of your home  by filtering toxins given off by carpets and furniture. They are  also said to have a calming effect if you’re not stressed out by keeping them alive.

To decide what plants will be best for your home talk to your local nursery.

…and don’t forget to water them.
