Most ferns are not difficult to grow in a modern home, but they will not tolerate neglect. The compost must never be allowed to dry out, so they are ideal for bathrooms. The surrounding atmosphere needs to be kept moist (i.e. mist occasionally to give humidity).

Maidenhair ferns are a delicate variety but with a little care and attention are beautiful plants. A tray of pebbles with water and misting the leaves regularly gives humidity if in a dry room and this plant will thrive. As with other ferns the key is to keep the compost moist and never allow to dry out.

They may be pretty to look at and a great way to brighten up the home; but indoor plants are also good for your health. Research shows they improve the quality of indoor air and absorb carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen into the air.

Here at Burston we have a huge variety for you to peruse in store. From our frequent and extensive travels around the UK and we have sourced some all-time favourites and more unusual examples from the finest growers around.

To keep your plants in good health you’ll find a large range of food – plus some stunning pots and stands for your showstoppers.

Most of us have lost a plant or two over the years and the biggest culprit is usually insufficient or excessive watering.
Too much water in the soil layer forces air from the root zone, reducing the plan’s oxygen supply. Some plants adapt and enjoy a soaking, others have adapted to long periods of dryness between heavy watering.

At Burston we can help you know the conditions your plant needs to thrive. And while they can be grown in almost any container, we can advise on the best one for each plant.

For example clay pots are porous and tend to draw moisture from the soil. Others like metal, glass or plastic will conserve water and will need less attention from you.
