'Oh indoor tree, Oh indoor tree…'

Your leaves are so unchanging!

It’s always a bit of a shock in January when the Christmas tree leaves a void, both literally and figuratively. However, it’s also nice to give your home an update with fresh greenery as you begin a new year. To get it right straightaway, an indoor tree is an excellent alternative to bring atmosphere and nature into your home on a grand scale.

Extensive choice of indoor trees 

The nice thing about indoor trees is that they instantly bring a plenitude  of greenery into your home and you’re utterly spoilt for choice. There’s Polyscias, a shrub-like indoor tree that provides plenty of vertical excitement, and Dracaena, which brings a hint of the tropics into your home. The fabulous parasol-like crown on Pachira invites you to sit underneath it at your leisure, and Beaucarnea offers an attractive trunk topped by a wild mess of curls to create a feature in your room. There are also many other tree-sized houseplants that you can choose from to start the New Year with a bang!

Playing with space and shape  

You can do more in your interior with indoor trees than you might think. You can hang them up or incorporate them in a table [ link DIY ]. If that doesn’t suit, you can also place them on a chair or table. It’s a bit more original than placing them on the floor; it changes the sightlines in the room and you can store stuff underneath them.

Plenty of variation of shapes and foliage  

If you prefer to keep things compact, place a couple together in a large bowl or pot for a substantial table garden display. That gives you a single green point of focus that still looks very varied thanks to the different shapes of the trunks and leaves. And if you really miss the fairy lights at night, you can always hang them on your indoor tree.
