Q: How often should I water my houseplant?
A: As a rule of thumb (or green finger), we suggest watering your houseplant about once a week - but do use your floral intuition. If the leaves are wilted and the soil looks dry, don't deny the plant a drink. You could also pop in a stick of plant food every few months or so, just to keep the plant happy.
Q: Do I need to repot my house plant?
A: All our houseplants come potted in good quality soil and ample containers, and in most instances it's unlikely you'll need to transplant them. The exception, of course, is if yours turns into an Audrey ? la Little Shop of Horrors. If your houseplant starts bulging beyond the confines of its pot, do it a favour and find it a slightly bigger home.
Plants really do make a house a home, their luscious foliage is both serene and balletic, while delightful flowers can keep blooming year after year, simply the perfect gift.
Serenata has a fine selection of greenery to choose from that would be perfect for any gift-giving occasion. We make it easy for you to order online, and we provide free delivery within the UK. From Buxus in topiary frames, to Calamondin miniature orange trees, live plants will perk up any patio, home, or office. They also help to create a healthy environment; they are natural air filters that take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen.
To add life to your patio, consider our collection of trees. Four of our best-selling trees are the Bay, Citrus, Olive, and Ornamental. The Bay is available with or without a plaited trunk and in either the pom-pom or pyramidal shape. If you prefer something that will bear fruit, choose our Calamondin miniature orange or our Lemon Tree Four Seasons. Both produce fragrant blossoms and edible fruit. They are perfect for a kitchen counter or sunny windowsill. The Olive tree is available with either the straight or corkscrew trunk. If you know a bonsai enthusiast, the ornamental Japanese maple would make the perfect gift.
Buxus, house plants, and flowering plants are some of our most popular-selling items. Smaller and more compact than the trees, most of these plants are well suited for indoor living conditions, such as your home or office. Under the proper climate conditions, many of them can be placed outside on a patio, or may even be transplanted into the ground.
Brighten the day of a friend or loved one by sending him a living gift to let him know you are thinking of him. Celebrate a co-worker’s birthday or promotion with a special delivery from Serenata. Buxus in a topiary frame will be a great decorative addition to any office, and the recipient will be reminded of your thoughtfulness for years to come.
