Add a Touch of the Tropics to your home!

Most people know that having house plants is good for your home, but how are they good for your home? There are many benefits to having indoor plants including their ability to clean your air. With the right number of house plants you can breathe easier, enjoy improved health, and have a sharper focus.

Over the years NASA has conducted research into the best house plants for cleaning and purifying air. Some of the best include; Areca Palm, Pothos, Peace Lily, Chinese Evergreen, Philodendron, Dracaena, Weeping Fig, and the Rubber Plant. For a list of the best plants for cleaning your air click here. NASA recommends one plant, in a 6 inch (15 cm) or larger pot, per 100 square feet of household. So an 1,000 square foot home should have 10 small house plants.

January 5th, 2015

Add colour and fragrance to your winter garden with Witch Hazel!

Witch hazels, also known as Hamamelis, are excellent deciduous shrubs to add to your winter garden. Known best for their colourful flowers and beautiful fragrance no garden would be complete without at least one variety of Witch Hazel. The flowers are beautiful during late winter and early spring from December to February.

The stems of this plant also add structure to your garden. During the summer the green leaves provide an excellent backdrop for other flowering shrubs or excellent shade for your hosta’s or other shade plants.

Witch hazels are hardy to zone 5 (-15 F, or -23 C) and most will grow to 8 to 12 feet high and 6 to 8 feet wide. They are easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. They flower best in a sunny location. They prefer moist, acidic, organically rich soils and can tolerate heavy clay soils.

As they grow it is important to remove sucker shoots that grow from the root system to prevent them from spreading. For general pruning give them a light pruning in spring after flowering to control shape and size.

The x intermedia hybrids (H. mollis x H. japonica) are large deciduous shrubs which typically grow 12-20′ tall and feature mid to late winter flowers.

You can choose from the following varieties:

  • Hamamelis intermedia ‘Arnold’s Promise’ - bright yellow flowers
  • Hamamelis intermedia ‘Jelena’ – vibrant yellow flower
  • Hamamelis intermedia ‘Sunburst’ – bright yellow
