Whilst browsing I have been collecting loads of Images of houseplants and this morning came across this article about summer plant ideas and I thought I would try my hand at something different, so inspired by the http://frommoontomoon.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/because-matching-bedlinen-is-just-like.htmlarticle I have put together my own 3 Summer Plant Ideas...
1) Succulents in Trays

I really love the idea of putting a number of succulents together in a tray. The wonderful about succulents is not only are they great for novice houseplant gardeners, as they extremely hard to kill, but they come in a great range of shapes and textures making them perfect for grouping together.... the big squishy ones look great next to a spikey dude :)
2) Getting Creative with Planters

3) Pots with faces

Whether they are grouped together or you have one rouge smiling planter amongst your pots, these pots will bring a sense of fun to your house plant collection.... but be warned they are addictive ( I now have 4 Stella Atelier pots... whoops).
Animal planters are also a perfect way to get kids excited about house plants.... remember Mr Grasshead?.... I thought he was so cool...
What do you guys think?
