For the holiday from home feel, look no further than the Areca Palm. This lush plant resembles a palm tree and its tropical vibes create your own little slice of paradise. It is also praised for its air-purifying qualities, and can bring relief to dry skin - talk about a multi-tasker!
Native to the Madagascan tropics, this plant is sometimes referred to as the Golden Feather Palm or Butterfly Palm. Sadly, it was once considered endangered due to the loss of its natural habitat.
If you can, use rain water when hydrating this plant, as it doesn't like the chemicals typically found in tap water. As for repotting, do this every two to three years - the Areca Palm likes to be cosy in a tight container.

Over time, many plants have evolved to help them survive in the wild and avoid being eaten - clever right? This means if you're a pet parent, you'll have to be careful which plants you pick. If your furry friend is prone to nibbling, choose one of our pet friendly plants.
Over the past 5 years we've really perfected our craft. We've developed time-tested sustainable packaging and packing tricks that ensure your plant will be delivered through the post in perfect condition.
We won a Silver Gilt medal for our debut exhibit at this years' Chelsea Flower Show's Houseplant Studios. Our concept 'The Plant School' featured an incredible 350 houseplants, including many of the plants you've come to know and love through our website. You can learn more about our concept over on our blog.
We're a dedicated team of plant-obsessed experts based at our nursery, tucked away in the Essex countryside. Each member of our team is as caring & knowledgeable as the next. Our days are devoted to nurturing plants (we've even been known to play music to them!) and carefully packing your orders.
Nothing makes us happier than making you happy (cheesy, but it’s true) which is why we do everything we can to provide a positive plant experience from start to finish. Your plant should arrive fresh and healthy - if for any reason it doesn’t, we’ll replace it for free within 30 days!
It's in our nature to care about our planet, which is why we're doing everything in our power to look after it's future. We're on a journey to become a more sustainable business and we're proud to currently send our plants in 100% sustainable packaging.
