Valentine’s Day at The Little Botanical
Flowers and chocolates might seem like the obvious choice of a gift at Valentine’s Day but plants are a little greener and last quite a lot longer!
Indoor houseplants offer a refreshing and attractive alternative as Valentine’s gifts and unlike cut flowers, with a little care and nurturing they thrive, just like the best relationships. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, why not pick out the perfect plant for your partner as a special gift.
This year, why not go a step further and indulge your Valentine by sending them a real statement plant from our fabulous new collection of big house plants.
Send love with our big house plant range
This Valentine’s Day we want you to send a message that lasts, and for that, you need a gift that lasts. A large lovely leafy plant from our carefully curated big house plant range can live for years, and all they need is a little bit of care and attention.
An XL Bird of Paradise in our new stylish Belly Basket is about as attractive as it gets, with its exotic paddle-shaped leaves truly stealing the show.
Lacking the space for an XL Bird of Paradise? Then how about one of our slightly smaller alternatives – the Large Fiddle-Leaf Fig? He’s currently the most popular indoor houseplant and has ridden the Insta-famous wave, so you can’t go wrong by gifting your other half one of these fabulous green beauties.
The full range of our big house plants in our new natural Belly Baskets provide even more options – how about a tropical Areca Palm or Rubber plant. If you’re looking for a romantic little plant to go alongside your big and beautiful one, then read on to see our full range of options.
A succa for succulents
In some cultures, succulents are a symbol of persistent and long-lasting love because of their longevity. These clever little plants can store water for extended periods of time in their thick leaves, maintaining their fabulous luscious greenery for even longer.
As always, here at The Little Botanical, we have a number of sweet succulents, just perfect for giving your Valentine on the most romantic of days.
Hoya Kerrii (Single Heart)
The Hoya Kerrii is top of our list for Valentine’s Day plants. Native to south-east Asia, this heart-shaped succulent has become a popular gift at this time of year – for obvious reasons!
You won’t need to worry about finding the right-sized pot because, like all of our plants here at The Little Botanical, we’ve already sourced the perfectly designed pot to match your plant. No need for you to splash out on another because it’s included in the price.
Just take a look at this wonderful, small but perfectly formed, classic Little Botanical heart. It comes in either our signature black and gold ceramic or pink and copper pot – gorgeous.
The attractive Echeveria Lilacina deserves its place on our list of recommended gifts for Valentine’s Day. Also known as the Mother of Pearl Plant, its lovely lilac leaves with their bright pink tips, are wonderful, unique and so very pretty.
With an option of grey or pink to match the copper trim on our smart Little Botanical ceramic pot, this succulent totally looks the part.
String of Hearts
Ceropegia Woodii, otherwise known as the String of Hearts, is a truly beautiful plant perfect for a gift at this time of year. While it is not technically a succulent, it has many similar properties as it stores water in its leaves and is easy to look after.
Potted in our grey and copper ceramic Little Botanical pot, this delicate plant, with its long trail of heart-shaped leaves, is bound to put a smile on the face of your loved one.
The timeless elegance of an Orchid
Orchids have long been associated with love and beauty. For example, in ancient Greece they were associated with male fertility. When it came to the Victorians, the rarer and exotic the orchid, the deeper your love for the recipient (and your pockets!) Moving over to China, they represent elegance and friendship.
So whether you are looking for a gift for your partner or a close friend this Valentine’s Day, an orchid is an excellent choice.
Have a plantastic Valentine’s Day!
Whether it be large and bold or small and sweet, the perfect plant will always deliver a gift of happiness to your special Valentine.
