Plants can make your home a more attractive, pleasant and welcoming. They also cleanse the air, making your open spaces more fragrant. Get ready to give a bit of life to every corner of your home with the suggestions below!

First, it’s good to remember that you can also plant fruit and other edible plants. And yes, there are many plants that you can easily grow. With the right variety of plants, you’ll be able to make your home look three times better than before.

Secondly, you need to decide where your plants are going to go. How big the space is, how much light there is, humidity, and the quality of the soil (either ground soil or potted) is all important. Once you’ve put a plant in a place where it has everything it needs, it’s best not to move it.

Why? Because plants get used to their surroundings. If you move them, it’s possible that they won’t have everything they need, even if you think that they look better in a different place.

In other words, not everything is about aesthetics. You need to also bear in mind the needs of the plant. These choices can be simplified as follows:

  1. Size of the plant.
  2. Ornamental plant: With flowers or without?
  3. Does the space have more light or shade?
  4. Will you need to water it every day or not?

Although plants with flowers are really eye-catching, they’re not the best for beginners. Generally, flowering plants tend to be more delicate and require more attention than others.

However, certain small, highly aromatic plants can be grown quite easily. There include: mint, peppermint, lavender, rosemary, chamomile, and parsley (all of which are edible too!).
