Plant Parenting 101

Plant care is self care

Plants have the power to change our mood and outlook, increase our productivity and creativity. To cleanse our air; detoxify our homes and work spaces. They can inspire us, relax and reward us. Plants can make our houses homes. More and more millennials are bringing the outdoors inside welcoming cacti, aloe and air plants as the interest in the mental health benefits of gardening grows. For those lucky enough to rent an apartment with a decent balcony space, living spaces are getting smaller and urban gardeners are getting smarter with the way they utilise their space. Many modern gardeners simply lack skills and tools to garden confidently. With the rising interest in all things green, a new breed of gardeners is emerging.
