We are thrilled to to be launching a new range of indoor plants, The Botanist by Caragh Nurseries, is now here to help make your home more beautiful too. Starting with a select line of houseplants and pots, we aim to provide plants for your home that will not only look beautiful, but that will work with your lifestyle as well.
For us, the beauty that exists in plants from a visual perspective, is the first reason we bring them into our home. The fact that they can transform a living space immediately is the next. It is certainly the green in my home that I thank for keeping me calm when things get too heavy and let’s face it, we all need a little lightness these days!
Bringing greenery into your home has so many positive benefits. For me, not only are you creating a space that can artfully blur the line between interior and exterior, but also one that has great depth. This depth is warm and inviting, and at the end of the day brings a real sense of well being. You are literally giving your space life and turning what was just a house into a home.
Houseplants don’t just look good, they make us feel good too. Not only can plants brighten up our surroundings, but they can also lift our mood. Being around plants has a calming effect on people. Especially as we spend more time indoors, we are reminded how calming it is to care for our plants, and what their growth can tell us about our own.
We can also improve our indoor air quality with plants. Plants absorb harmful toxins, breaking them down into gentle byproducts, and storing them in their soil to use later for food. Plants take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen, and some even keep giving off oxygen after the sun goes down.
Lastly, the greatest benefit provided by plants, in my opinion, is the sense of pride you feel in caring for them well. There is something so special about knowing you are the reason a plant thrives and flourishes. Personally, I see the time I spend watering plants as my moment to meditate. I set the mood and completely zen out.
