Ditch the fading flowers wrapped in plastic and give a more enduring and thoughtful gift to your Valentine this year. Show the object of your affections that you pay attention to their interests and surprise them with Plantsmith’s award-winning houseplant care range to keep their prized urban jungle in top condition or, even better, add to their collection with a new potted friend and one of Plantsmith’s exclusive gift sets to help the foliage flourish long after any wilted blooms would have ended up on the compost heap.
We’ve come a long way since the Victorians needed to send flowers to communicate hidden feelings or when red dye was so expensive that anything that colour was considered luxurious. If you really want to ‘wow’ your Valentine this February, then it’s time to get over the boring bunch of decaying blooms in plastic wrapping and treat your partner to something that will make them feel special, whilst showing just how attentive you are. Whether they are a houseplant fanatic with an assortment that would give Instagrammers a run for their money or someone who’s keen to tap into the trend for greenery at home but hasn’t taken the plunge yet, Valentine’s Day (February 14th) is the perfect excuse to indulge their passion and gift a gorgeous indoor plant, along with plant care products that will make maintenance a doddle.
Cut flowers are always going to die – that’s a fact – so, the question is, do you want to give your partner something that’s already on its way out or would you rather buy them a present that has staying power and that they can enjoy for a long time? Real love doesn’t have a shelf life and neither should your gift!
