You’ll find plenty of cute succulents, prickly cactus plants and fabulous ferns at Forest. There are so many different varieties that you can select one best suited to your environment and requirements. From striking Monstera (Swiss Cheese) plants to Mother-In-Law’s Tongue and Aloe Vera, you’ll be in botanical heaven.
Once you’ve settled on your plant, you can choose a lovely little pot to put it in. There is a wide selection available which includes concrete, terracotta, weathered, ceramic, glazed, and natural-looking varieties. Planters on stands, pots dangling from hanging macramé string and more are ready for a new home.
Selection of Plant Pots
Terrariums are gorgeous plant greenhouses which can be used as decorative objects if they placed on a shelf or mantlepiece. Choose a pyramid, cube, diamond or hexagonal shape terrarium and arrange a few plants inside.
If you feel you need to know more about how to care for your plants, you might want to buy one of the plant care books. Try Plant Love by Alys Fowler or Prick if you’ve purchased a cactus or succulent.
