You only have to glance at Pinterest to know that adding greenery indoors is a big trend. If you want the look but you’re not so green-fingered, faux is the way to go.
The artificial plants taking over the high street are excellent quality and they could be a one-off purchase that will brighten your home for years, so they are also great value for money.
Looking after the real deal can mean a lot of love and care, but we’ve picked some of our favourite faux’s from Wainright’s Yard in Kendal where there’s absolutely no maintenance required. Just pick your favourite succulent, grass or bright bloom and they’ll add instant colour to liven up your home this spring. Top tip: use a fabric spray on them and they’ll even smell like the real deal.
