As a houseplant lover, here are 16 things I’ll be buying in the Black Friday sales

Spruce up your house with these discounts!

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.

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.
