FEBRUARY – Lets get planting indoors!

We’re all itching to get out into the garden, but the garden won’t be ready for weeks yet. So let’s look at indoors and get organised for the coming months.

February remains a great month to buy seed potatoes, get them chitted  and planted. We have a great variety in store and a helpful ‘pick-up guide’ for the beginner. Here at Pentland Plants we encourage our gardeners to get involved and get growing. It’s not just satisfying to see something grow from a seed but the end result is ultimately rewarding.

Seed sowing is well under way in February. But it’s not too late to get started with your seed packets and propagationequipment. We stock everything for the windowsill gardener to the greenhouse enthusiast. If you’re using a greenhouse don’t forget to fumigate it before placing out your freshly planted seed trays! 

Houseplants are a favourite and their popularity has exploded over the past couple of years. Houseplants add atmosphere, colour, improve air quality and can provide a range of mental and physical health benefits. At Pentland Plants we always stock a selection of the best houseplants. Did you know indoor plants such as Weeping fig , Boston fern, Aloe Vera , rubber plants and  mother in laws tongue improve the air quality help us sleep!

Houseplants look complete dressed in a suitable pot. It used to be that the most common container was the clay pot, but today we have a selection of decorative pots to choose from which are available in an almost infinite variety of materials, types, size and colour. 

Choosing the right pot is very important but so are the compost and feed. Houseplants are individual and so are their needs. Plants require different types of nutrients but don’t let this faze you as we are here to help you select the right product to keep your plants blooming and looking great.

Not all houseplant require compost , air plants originating from South America a very much back in vogue…. There exotic looking foliage and  flowers make them intriguing and a popular plant to grow in the home and conservatory.
