Pssst...still have no idea how to make your father happy this Father's Day? We do! The most appropriate gift is a father plant, and here's why.
He’s generous and handsome, rugged and easy-going, surprisingly gentle and he likes a drink from time to time. Your father? No, the Tradescantia.
Here you go, Dad
With its attractive leaves and easy-going approach to life, the Dad plant fits in everywhere. On Dad’s desk, for example, or in his shed, in the kitchen or beside the record player. But the main reason you should give it to your father on 20 June is because people feel better with greenery around them. You’ll be giving him green health in a pot.
In a lovely pot
And speaking of that: surprise! You can make a pot for the plant yourself, such as this lovely hanger. If your father doesn’t fancy screwing a hook into the ceiling, you can also display the Dad plant in an ‘ordinary’ pot that you’ve decorated yourself. Wrap it up, add a big kiss and make this Father’s Day one to remember.
