    How to look after your houseplants

    Victoria Weir, Flower Buyer at Lidl, has five top tips…

    1. Water

    Houseplants like to be watered twice a week, so make sure you tend to them regularly and don’t leave them thirsty

    2. Shed some light

    The best kind of light for indoor plants is partial light with some shadow. You can keep an eye on the colour of the plant’s leaves to make sure it is getting the right amount. You’ll soon know if you need to move it

    3. Fertilize

    Green plants should be fertilised moderately, twice a month. In the winter even more sparingly, as they will be in their ‘rest’ period

    4. Repot in time

    The best time to repot a houseplant is now – the beginning of spring. If you have just brought it home give it a couple of weeks to adjust to its new environment and then go for it!

    5. Give them space to grow

    As plants grow and get bigger it’s best to find them a larger pot with more room for their roots.

    Houseplants are the multitasking must-have for homes this summer!  In addition to adding a splash of colour, indoor plants are believed to add multiple psychological and physiological benefits.  Plants can improve moods and lower stress levels. They also act as natural purifiers, improving air quality.

    Lidl’s Indoor Plants and Ceramic Pot Range is available tomorrow, until stocks last.
