IT may be a little cold to spend hours in the garden in January, but indoor house plants need just as much attention.
The care and attention needed starts from the minute they are bought. People should be sure to wrap them up well for the trip home to prevent them from the cold and foliage damage.
During winter months, daylight is limited so people should give house plants as much light as possible and consider moving existing plants for them to benefit from optimum light.
Radiators and air conditioning heating can dry out plants so people should ‘mist’ them with a water spray or place them over a moist pebble tray.
As they growth slows during the winter, they need to be watered less often.
Plants should be inspected regularly for insect pests and treated immediately if any are found.
