Hanging, climbing - Devil’s Ivy, also known as Scindapsus, can grow in all directions. This houseplant stands out thanks to its heart-shaped satiny leaves with silver, pale green, yellow or whitish spots, or a flame pattern. it’s also a reliable companion: if looked after well, this domestic wonder can grow very old and remain beautiful. The plant also gives something back in return for your loving care: according to the NASA Clean Air Study, Devil’s Ivy is one of the plants that helps improve the air quality in your home.
Emphasise Devil’s Ivy’s versatility by displaying both hanging and climbing plants. A couple of hanging specimens side by side soon create the illusion of a green curtain or room divider. Replacing the moss pole of the climbing specimens with a more natural looking branch makes the plant trendy and creates a particularly exciting silhouette. Devil’s Ivy is also one of the few houseplants where the tendrils can also be displayed lying down.
Hebe (Speedwell Shrub) is the ideal plant for giving your garden and patio boost in the late summer. White, purple, pink, or lilac flowers instantly lend a fresh energy, and Hebe’s foliage varies in colour from pale green to dark green, and very pale grey. In the winter and spring some varieties even have claret leaves. Thanks to the somewhat random structure, the plant has a loose, natural look, and the clusters of flowers are very popular with butterflies and bees. Because Hebe is so versatile, it’s often used in beds and borders, rockeries or as pond planting, but it also works well as a container plant on the balcony or patio. Hebe is evergreen, bringing life to the garden throughout the year.
Highly decorative, eye-catching and extremely easy to care for: there’s a lot to be said for succulents such as Echeveria, Crassula, Kalanchoe, Aeonium, Aloe, Haworthia and Rhipsalis. They’re all succulents, which means that they are able to store water in their roots, stems and thick leaves. This enables them to effortlessly cope with dry periods, so a relief for when you go on holiday. Succulents are particular popular because their unusual, sometimes freakish shapes, fit perfectly with the current trend to give botanicals a role in shaping the style in interiors.
Preferably display succulents mixed and together to give them a greater impact. Stones, sand, some palms and a couple of toy dinosaurs can create an adventurous setting for succulents that reinforces their Jurassic Park element. If your target group is slightly more conservative, a Mediterranean patio mood with terracotta bowls, Portuguese tiles and a couple of sizeable agaves will boost sales.

The chrysanthemum is widely known as a cut flower, but it is also an amazing houseplant, with a bushy structure, beautiful green leaves and fabulous flowers in all sorts of colours and shapes. It’s also an easy plant that remains radiantly upright even in higher temperatures. In the wild, chrysanthemums flower in late summer and autumn. Growers mimic those short days in the greenhouse, so that the chrysanthemum starts producing buds and is also available earlier in the year nowadays. The fresh, bright cheerful colours make it a summery feature that does well both indoors and on the garden table.
A pick-your-own garden with climbing fruits like blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and grapes do not require much room. These plants grow upwards along a wall, fence, frame or pergola, and can even thrive on a balcony. They offer attractive foliage and blossom early in the summer.
During the summer the fruits develop, which can then be harvested late summer and autumn. So there’s always something going on with climbing fruit. Seeing fruit growing (and ultimately eating it) is a fun and educational experience for children and incorporates the growing trend of wanting to know where your food comes from. And what you don’t eat yourself will delight the birds in autumn.
Bonsai, Ficus Ginseng and Dracaena lucky bamboo all have powerful shapes, natural strength and a stylised appearance. All three fit well with the growing interest in bringing more calm and meaning to our lives. They’re also perfect feature plants in the minimalist interior trend which is still very popular. Zen plants are easy to look after, attractive to look at and blessed with a serene look that really impacts on their surroundings.
Zen plants as a phenomenon dates back from the end of the 14th century, when Zen Buddhists created stylised gardens of exceptional beauty in order to meditate. Respect for nature was crucial. The simplicity is deceptive: anyone who starts working with Zen plants will soon see that they bring depth to their location and become ever more interesting.
Pick-your-own plants and kitchen gardens are incredibly popular, and vegetable plants often also look fantastic, so there’s a double benefit. On the one hand it’s a response to the growing interest in healthy, sustainable and vegetarian food, on the other hand it creates a decorative corner with productive green plants with produce which is good to grow and tasty to eat. May is a good month to plant vegetables in containers, pots or beds.
The vegetable plants in the selection for May all bear fruit. These include cucumber, bell pepper, chilli pepper, tomato, pumpkin and courgette. Most vegetable plants are supplied already bearing some edible fruit. There are climbing plants, bush forms and dwarf plants available, but also special consumer-oriented concepts such as Pluck, Snacker® Funfoods and Pick-&-Joy. Multiple varieties are available of all vegetables: different colours of chilli and bell pepper, tomatoes from Roma to vine, and cucumbers from snack-sized to giant. The pre-cultivated plants produce plenty of fruit over the summer period, and therefore offer the joy of picking and a real ‘ fresh experience’ throughout that time.
