This issue focuses on health! Did you know that house plants can make the air you breathe more healthy? Not only do they produce oxygen but also they remove harmful chemicals from the air. NASA showed that the Peace Lily was best at removing formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene. These chemicals are found in rugs, cigarette smoke, man-made fibres, solvents and paint!
The orchid, one of our favourites, represents pure friendship and is also good at cleaning the air of chemicals. It is the perfect bedroom buddy as it is one of the rare plants which releases oxygen at night.
For our male readers - research shows that women find men who own plants more attractive, with 84% saying it shows he has a caring nature!
To celebrate our 10 years in business, there will be a monthly competition, check our Facebook page for details! Win a bouquet for your best friend in our April competition, full details on our Facebook page. Let us know what competitions you would like to see!

In ancient Egypt, Aloe vera was known as the plant of immortality. We like it because it is easy to grow and helps clear chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene which can be found in chemical-based cleaners and paints. Even those of you without green fingers can keep this plant successfully.
It is the ideal plant for a sunny kitchen windowsill as the gel inside the plant helps to heal cuts and burns. This plant loves bright conditions and grows well on a shelf, windowsill or other area, without direct sunlight. Water only when the soil is dry usually 1-2 times a month and even less in Winter.
