A plant cutting

Although a cutting is still a plant, it will be easier to find a place for it in a home already crowded with plants. Another advantage is that it will take some time before it reaches any great size. Is there a certain kind of cutting that’s high on the wish list of the person having a birthday? Try to find out so that you can give an even more personal gift than ‘just any plant’.

A book full of plants

If a house is already full of plants, a coffee table book would make a nice change – one about plants, of course! Books are a great opportunity to read, learn and dream about your favourite subject.

Here are some ideas:

  • Urban Botanics: An Indoor Plant Guide for Modern Gardeners by Maaike Koster & Emma Sibley
  • Wonder Plants: Your urban jungle interior by Irene Schampaert and Judith Baehner
  • Urban Jungle: Living and Styling with Plants by Igor Josifovic and Judith de Graaff
