Freshen up your interiors with beautiful flowers

Whether you are preparing your property for sale or just casually browsing for horticultural tips from Edinburgh solicitors, a few flowers can always freshen up your home. They can also contribute to your health and wellbeing by helping to purify the air in your property. Design-wise, try to use flowers strategically: add a vibrant splash of colour to a small bathroom or bring the warm weather into a chilly kitchen at the back of the house. Here are some excellent indoor flowers:

 

Scented Geranium

 Scented Geranium

These pretty plants can add a delicate look to any room as well as a wonderful fresh aroma. Personalise the way these flowers look and smell by choosing from ginger, lemon or rose varieties. There are in fact hundreds of varieties each with its own distinct character – interestingly the scent always comes from the leaves. When grown indoors they will need bright light so best to keep them by a window.

 

Paperwhites

Fragile and sweet smelling paperwhites are the ideal flower for a calm and quiet room in your home. They have a very elegant look and will bloom any time of year. If growing these beautiful flowers from scratch put the bulbs in a sunny spot and water them regularly. Once the delicate flowers appear move the plants to a cooler spot.

 

Pothos

 Pothos

This miraculous plant with its white and yellow flower removes toxins from the air naturally and is also a lovely thing to look at. These look beautiful in a hanging basket or terracotta urn but will need to be trimmed every so often. Pothos make a great addition to an office or study space as they can tolerate very low light.
