How to… display houseplants in your home

 

We know that houseplants in the home are good for our health, mopping up all sorts of environmental nasties and cleaning the air as they do, but what’s the best way to show them off? Here’s our top six suggestions…

 

1 Hanging baskets We’re loving the retro-revival of macramé. And hanging indoor planters are just the ticket for would-be urban gardeners. You can find similar at Grace & Glory
