We are becoming a nation obsessed with houseplants! But this year in particular (with us spending more time inside than ever before) our love for greenery has blossomed. Not only have houseplants been shown to have a positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing but they’re also great for our physical health, as many provide much-needed anti-pollutants, ensuring the air we breathe is fresh and full of oxygen. So it’s easy to see the appeal of them!
Not to mention they look lovely dotted around a living room, bedroom or even bathroom and are a great talking point when guests come over. From tall, floor-standing plants to pretty trailing foliage, there are lots of ways you can use plants to dress your space. And, for those who can’t be bothered to water, feed and dust them, artificial designs are incredibly realistic these days.
If you thought Black Friday was all about appliances and furniture, then plant lovers rejoice! This year, there are lots of great discounts to be found on stylish planters, real plants and artificial plants to green-up your home.

Black Friday planter deals
If, like me, you have a growing collection of plant pots and are constantly looking for new ones, this year’s Black Friday sale has some wonderful designs to be found…
Salix Set of Two Planters: was £35, now £25, Made.com
It’s double the trouble with this Black Friday discount from Made.com. This set of two brass planters look great with the contrast of the black stand – for an industrial look. They come in at 23cm by 19cm so are great for smaller plants. With a £10 saving they are hard to refuse!
Butlers Arielle Stoneware Plant Pot: was £16.99, now £6.48, Wayfair
For a pop of colour, we love this green stoneware pot from Wayfair. For indoor use, this 12.5cm by 14cm pot has a beautiful scalloped design which is reminiscent of a mermaid’s tale. With a saving of more than £10, it’s a real bargain buy.

This year, I’ve spent hours in lockdown browsing for plants – big and small – and have been delighted by the sheer amount of choice that’s out there. I’m always looking for an excuse to add to my ever-growing green living room (which vaguely resembles Kew Gardens at this point) and the Black Friday shopping extravaganza is the perfect time to indulge. From petite succulents to frothy floor-fillers, there are a number of goodies to feast on in the sales. Here are five of our favourites that should be on every plant parent’s radar…
Aloe and Haworthia Succulent Collection: was £38.94, now £32.99, Waitrose Garden
If you’re looking to dip your toe in the popular houseplant trend, then this Aloe and Haworthia succulent collection is a great place to start. This set of six includes three of each, which all come in classic white pots. They look great dotted around a desk or styled on a windowsill.
Polyscias fruticosa ‘Ming’ – Ming Tree & Basket Combination: was £99.98, now £79.98, Crocus
The frothy foliage of this door is perfect for softening the look of your space and is ready to go in its own basket container. Stands approximately 80cm tall.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to stock up on houseplants, pots and accessories and give your spaces the green makeover they deserve.
It’s also worth pointing out that there are plenty more options out there if you do a little digging. In fact, some retailers even have categories to help you along with your purchase, including ‘unkillable’ categories for those who struggle to keep their plants alive.
