Plants to Spruce Up Your Bathroom

Would you like to spruce up your bathroom?

Including a plant is a perfect way to bring the beauty of nature indoors and also serves as a decorative addition, transforming an empty corner or windowsill in your room. Some plants are also well known for their air-purifying abilities.

With so many beautiful plants available, the choice can be a little overwhelming. Especially as some plants aren’t naturally suited to a steamy, bathroom environment.

We decided to venture to our local garden centre where we spoke to Bernie; an experienced horticulturalist with Ballyseedy Garden Centre who explains her top recommended plants for your bathroom with some excellent, helpful tips on caring for them.
