Have you heard? Houseplants are seriously trending for 2017. Savvy interior designers are all giving houseplants two thumbs up this year. But what kind? Which types will actually survive and thrive in your space? We don't have time for fussy plants and neither do you. So today we're giving you the plant rundown to help you reap what you sow. Some listed here are labelled as toxic to humans and/or pets. You'll have to weigh the benefits over possible side effects and do what's best for you. Neither one of my children nor pets have ever munched on my snake plant. Or wanted to for that matter. Play-doh yes. Dog food yes. Snake plant no. So for me the risks are very low. Even my cat never caved into temptation. And c'mon. The Christmas decor has come down and your house is starting to look a little bleak. It needs to be cheered up. The benefits of plants are quite numerous ranging from filtering and freshening the air to relieving stress...not to mention the aesthetic aspect of having living green art in your space. Hooray for houseplants. Here's 13 you don't want to miss out on!
Not much is green and growing in Buffalo, NY this time of year. Although I think our reputation for snow and ice is a bit overstated! So we welcome any opportunity to bring the outdoors in. Plants are soothing and refreshing, but less likely to flourish indoors unless you have a plan. Enter: Plants On Walls. Their felt vertical garden kit allows you to grow plants up your indoor wall during the cold months. As many studies reveal, green spaces reduce stress, and increase self-esteem, positive mood and productivity. And sure, you can use this awesome product outdoors too. Your choice! With all this versatility, I'm thrilled for you and your chance to win a Florafelt vertical garden kit valued at $200 from Plants On Walls.

Depending on where across the country you live, gardening can be a year-round activity or pretty much contained to the spring and summer months. But even if you’re looking out the window right now and see only cold rain or snow, you can begin designing a garden that will burst into bloom as soon as the weather warms up. Start making plans now, and include the kids in the early stages to get them involved and excited. Your local nursery and home improvement stores already have big displays of vegetable and flower seeds, and you can get absolutely lost exploring all of the options available online. Make it a project to plot out your yard and decide where you’re going to put everything.

The price point. You get the high-end, made in America quality minus the boutique price.
