Window garden: Mini cacti garden
Bohemian Home: Houseplants and a great view
Conservatory plants
Where the wild things are: You can never have too many houseplants
I love this Houseplant covered retro style table

This post is for my friends Anna and Shaun (check out his awesome webcomic here) who are moving house and asked for a post about houseplants. So here it is....

It is my opinion that no house (or workplace) should be without houseplants, not only do they clean the air around us but studies by the Washington State University showed that people with houseplants in their workplace were 12% more productive,  more relaxed, had lower blood pressure and were less stressed than those without.

Sadly I don't think it will catch on in hospital wards here in the UK where patient flowers have been banned in many hospitals. Personally I think this is ridiculous as when ill being in a calming environment would surely promote well being....

looking at these, i definitely need more houseplants. i got so many outside, i need to reflect that inside. i know it would definitely calm me down and make me more productive. shame to hear about the uk hospitals. i think patients would greatly benefit from plants surrounding them. i know that my mood improves drastically just by looking at my garden, imagine receiving that energy when you are sick!
