Choose Healthy Plants For Your Flower Wall

If you want your flower wall to look amazing, make sure you purchase healthy plants. When choosing your flowers, it’s a good idea to check to make sure that the plants and flowers are in good condition and have been well looked after.

Remember to Water Your Plants

It’s important to remember to water your plants as soon as you get them. If you’re not going to use them straight away, store them in a safe area at the right temperature. Remember, not all flowers have the same care requirements, so it’s important to do some research into the best ways to care for a particular plant.

Top Tips for Keeping a Plant Wall

Here are some of our top tips for keeping a plant wall in the home:

  • Living plant walls should be watered every 2-3 days depending on the climate. Remember, plants need more water in summer. Dry compost indicates the plants need water; wet compost means they are fine.
  • Attach a waterproof membrane to the wall – this will help prevent damp issues on the wall
  • Plant care – if you purchase flowering plants, you’ll need to remember to remove dead blooms. This will help encourage new flowers later in the season. If you’re thinking of adding some foliage plants to your flower wall, then you’ll need to remember to snip off dead leaves and tidy them up when needed. If you want to include annual plants in your flower wall, then it’s a good idea to give them some liquid feed every few weeks in summer.
