Indoor house plant from Marks & Spencer

Bring the outdoors inside and get gardening

Having recently moved into a second floor flat, I’ve been pining for my old garden. So I decided to brighten things up with an indoor plant.

I did have my eye on a HUGE palm tree but after a somewhat heated discussion with my flatmate, I was persuaded to downsize to a Double Orchid from Marks & Spencer, £29.50.

Cute and compact, it would look great in any living room and the best part is, it needs minimal attention!
