Christmas is almost upon us. Soon stores will be covered in shiny tinsel and Christmas carols will be able to be heard throughout shopping centres. With the festivities of the season, however also comes the question. What Christmas present do you get for your loved ones? Why not look at a beautiful potted plant! Plants keep growing and providing joy long after other gifts have lost their lustre..
Succulents are great little plants that need very little water to survive. If you have a friend that absolutely cannot keep anything alive, a succulent is probably the plant for them. You can forget about them for weeks, and they will still (most likely) be fine. There are so many varieties of succulents too. You can get little ones with delicate, coloured leaves or bigger ones that can even be trained into a bonsai shape. Either way, a bit of water to wet their roots and some pleasant sunshine, and a succulent will carry on giving joy long after the festive season.
Clivias and Poinsettias
Both Clivias and Poinsettias have beautiful red and orange flowers around Christmas time. They are hardy and don’t need too much looking after. They do need a little TLC, so unlike cactus or a succulents follow the care instructions and they will flower beautifully throughout the Christmas season Taking the time to write out a handwritten care card for each gift plant can add a beautiful personal element to your potted plant gifts for Christmas.
Herbs make a fantastic gift, especially if your gift is a person who enjoys cooking. There is such a vast range of different herbs to choose from! Lavender is pretty and fragrant and bound to be a super addition to any house. Cooking herbs such as basil, coriander, and mint make great windowsill additions and can be added to Christmas cooking too. Moss n Stone can present potted herbs in beautiful ceramic & glass bowls turning them into beautiful living gifts.
