Orchids

This delicate looking plant is tougher than you might think. It’s a perfect houseplant for your bathroom as unlike other house plants, they actually enjoy a humid environment.

Caring for orchids is actually easier than you think – just follow these three easy steps to success:

  • They love being in good light but not direct sunlight
  • Never let your orchid sit in water, water from the top and let the water drain through
  • Mist leaves occasionally.

Then sit back and enjoy! If like us, you’re big orchid fans, you can catch the end of the Kew Gardens Orchid festival, which runs until March 10th 2019.

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.
