Our shop turned into a bit of a jungle over the past year as we began to stock indoor house plants.
Indoor house plants have become really popular recently due to reports that many plants have air purifying qualities (Peace Lily, Spider Plant, Ficus Plant and Aloe Vera to name a few!) so are perfect for the home or office.
