Keep Winter Bright with Interior Delights

19 Jun, 2023

As the cool, dark days of winter set in, it’s important to adjust your indoor plant care routine. Here are some tips to keep your houseplant collection growing well through the winter season.

Grow Well Tips


Most indoor plants are tropical or sub-tropical, which means that they need to be kept warm through the cold winter months. Keep your plants in a room that is 18°C or warmer, otherwise, your plants may show signs of cold damage on their leaves and start dying back. Ensure your plants are kept away from cool draughts, heat pumps and heaters.


With the shorter days and lower light levels in winter, your plants may need to be moved to get more light, but be sure to keep them out of direct sunlight. Clean your windows to allow more natural light in, and wipe your plants’ leaves with a damp towel to clean off any dust and help them absorb more light. For smaller cuttings and younger plants, consider investing in a grow light.


Correct watering during winter is crucial, as overwatering can lead to root rot. Cut watering back to a third of what your plants get in summer. Carnivorous plants and ferns are the only exception to this rule and need consistent watering maintained year-round.

Styling Tips

Utilising Shelves

Shelves are a great way to display your indoor plants and create a beautiful indoor oasis. Adding a range of different sizes and varieties of plants to your shelves will bring some visual interest to your space. Trailing plants are ideal for those higher levels on your shelf, to soften the space and give it an authentically designed feel.

Cover Pots

Add colour and character with cover pots. This is an easy styling tool that can be changed to fit your desired look. They can be used to complement your plants or to create a striking contrast. Switching up your cover pots every so often will keep your display looking fresh and interesting. We’re loving the deep greens, teal blues and textured neutrals for this season.

Incorporating Height

If you’re short on space but still want to incorporate more plants into your home, adding height is a simple solution. Plant stands are a great option for integrating height without taking up too much floor space, and can be used to frame larger pieces of furniture. If you prefer something with unique style, macrame hangers are an excellent choice.
