Nothing sneaks up on you quite like a leafy love affair. One moment you're wondering how many “forgotten" waterings is too many for the succulent you’re reluctantly plant-sitting for a friend; the next, you’re talking to it, coddling it, and spending Saturday mornings trawling garden centres for more plant pals to keep it company.
But with those warm, fuzzy plant parenthood feels comes hefty responsibility: the duty of daily care. While actually keeping your botanical babies alive and healthy will require in-depth research (aka googling), when it comes to the kit, we've got you covered.
From smart ceramic planters, to toolkits that don’t look like they crawled out of a sci-fi film, we’ve gathered everything a budding plant parent needs to get growing the stylish jungalow of their dreams.
