Thanks Plants!From 16 September, the Flower Council of Holland (FCH) will launch its Thanks Plants! consumer campaign for a second time. The main message of this campaign is to highlight all the benefits that plants bring and what that they do for us: they help us to relax, they bring us closer to nature, and make our house a home.The commercialIn the UK the campaign will start to be visible across our own media channels on Thejoyofplants.co.uk, and will be an online-only campaign which will sit on all social media channels through video, promoted social media posts and Instagram stories. The campaign will also be supported by an exciting London PR activity in October to bring the campaign to an end.The Thanks Plant message in a nutshellPlants make you more energetic, relaxed, happier and healthier, all in exchange for just a little water. They help us to connect with what really matters. And as they grow, the people around them grow too. Time for a thank you.

After a warm summer day we all feel like a fresh shower. Your plants have that too! As simple as watering may seem, there are some things that you have to take into account to keep your plants as healthy as possible.**TIPS: ** Strangely enough, plants in pots not only need water when it's hot, but the earth can dry out quickly even in cloudy, fanatic or even rainy weather. Rainwater often does not reach the earth because it runs from the leaves along the pot. Therefore, check the soil of your plants in pot regularly.Plants that like to be in the sun like the Bougainvillea and oleander love a lot of water. The best time to pour is early in the morning, because then evaporation is the least. Fortunately, there are also handy watering systems with a time switch.Watering plants that are in the open ground is another story. The plant roots there, unlike in pots, have the space to look for water. You help your plants to absorb water deeper into the ground by making them root. You do this by not spraying your garden every day, but by giving a good shower every few days.CONVENIENCE FOR HANGING GARDENS Do you have a balcony full of plants in hanging pots? Then a spray lance that you can click on the garden hose is ideal. That way, you can reach everything well. If you don't have many hanging plants, a normal watering can do the job. You can also easily make a watering system yourself with a PET bottle. Cut off the bottom, make holes in the bottle and plant it upside down between the hanging plants. If you pour water into the bottle, it will slowly run into the earth through the holes.PLANT CARE Are you going on vacation? Put all pot plants together as much as possible. Preferably in a place out of the bright sun. If you expect it to get really hot, give them a place in the shade. To give the plant sitter a helping hand, lay the garden hose ready.

Read more Calathea - Plant of the month November
The story of CalatheaCalathea is characterised by the fabulous markings on the leaves and the rich choice of leaf shapes, from round and oval to spear-shaped. Those leaves not only have air-purifying properties, but also join in your daily routine thanks to their day and night rhythm. There is a kind of joint between the leaf and the stem that allows movement. When it gets dark the leaves close, and if it’s quiet enough you can hear the rustling of the closing leaves. When it gets light they unfold again.

The story of the Christmas StarThe first thing that strikes you about Christmas star are the beautifully colored leaves. They are often mistaken for the flowers, but stand like bracts in a star shape around the actual flowers, which are small and yellow in the heart. The classic red Christmas star is well-known, but trending for December 2019 is modern pastel colors such as salmon, pink, lemon and apricot. It is an instant atmosphere for the holidays and beyond, because this winter bloomer immediately offers a colorful start to 2019.
