London Craft Club top ways to get more plants in your house

I love having plants in the house. I'm awful at keeping them alive, but I am getting better. (Here's a good place to get a few hints, not from me but from Sophie at Geofleur!) I stick with my beloved spider plants, succulents and a couple of old stalwarts who don't seem to die.

So it goes without saying that my favourite way to display plants is in plant hanger.  We've got two Plant Hanger workshops on at the moment, so take your pick!

My next is on a planter (ie a long-legged stand). They are great because they add different heights, like this, which immediately makes a cluster of plants look good. They are also great for a desk, as they make more space for all the other important clutter you have there.

Or you can use them like this to make a small plant have the same impact as a massive plant you either bought for a ton of cash or spend years growing. If you like the look of these, we've got a workshop coming up soon, with the lovely Melodie of Slinky Home
