Studies show that people who spend time surrounded by plants have less stress in their lives. We could all do with that, right? Plants soothe the soul and create a healthy environment for us to live and work in. It’s been said that they help us focus more and concentrate better, and surrounding oneself with nature is believed to increase memory retention, and improve mental cognition and performance by up to twenty percent!
A natural environment stimulates the senses while simultaneously keeping us calm, so having plants in the house or office, or taking time to get outside in the greenery is really important for our physical and mental health and wellbeing.
Think you might need to up your houseplant game? Why not treat yourself to a new one, or two? Or, if you’re like us, seven! We have a beautiful range in stock, ready-potted and suitable for every space and occasion. Wanting to send a plant to a friend or loved one? We gift wrap and deliver within the GTA.
