As a houseplant lover, here are five things I’ll be buying in the Black Friday sales

We are a nation obsessed with houseplants – but this year in particular (with us spending more time inside than ever before) our love for greenery has blossomed. Not only have houseplants shown to have a positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing but they’re also great for our physical health, as many provide much-needed anti-pollutants, ensuring the air we breathe is fresh and full of oxygen. So it’s easy to see the appeal of them!

Not to mention they look lovely dotted around a living room, bedroom or even bathroom and are a great talking point when guests come over.

If, like me, you’re more devoted to your houseplants than ever before and are constantly looking for new ones to add to your collection, then this year’s Black Friday houseplant sale has some wonderful treats in store.

This year, I’ve spent hours in lockdown browsing for plants – big and small – and have been delighted by the sheer amount of choice that’s out there. I’m always looking for an excuse to add to my ever-growing green living room (which vaguely resembles Kew Gardens at this point) and the Black Friday shopping extravaganza is the perfect time to indulge.

From discounted succulents to beautiful plant pots, there are a number of goodies to feast on in the sales. Here are five of our favourites that should be on every plant parent’s radar…

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to stock up on houseplants, pots and accessories and give your spaces the green makeover they deserve.

It’s also worth pointing out that there are plenty more options out there if you do a little digging. In fact, some retailers even have categories to help you along with your purchase, including ‘unkillable’ categories for those who struggle to keep their plants alive.
