Bellini is a small Peace Lily variety with gracefully arching stems and blooms that last for many months. Just like your relationship, this plant requires a little bit of TLC, but it'll reward you with blooms that will last far longer than any bouquet of roses.

Give the gift of enduring love this Valentine's Day with Anthurium Royal Red – the epitome of romance. With its striking heart-shaped red blooms that last for several months, this exquisite houseplant is the ideal choice when only red flowers will do. Beyond its captivating appearance, Anthurium Royal Red is a symbol of lasting passion and commitment. Delight your loved one with a touch of elegance that stands the test of time, making this exceptional Anthurium variety the perfect expression of love for a memorable Valentine's Day.


Gifting a houseplant is a unique and thoughtful way to show your love on Valentine's Day and, just like your love, it will last far longer than a bouquet of flowers. Cut flowers will only last for a week or so before they begin to droop and die, but a houseplant can continue to thrive for months or even years with proper care.

Houseplants’ long-lasting nature also make them a more sustainable gift option. Cut flowers are often grown intensively in far-flung lands and need to be transported long distances, fast. Valentine's roses are mostly grown in Kenya before being transported to the UK by plane. Studies show growing and transporting these roses dumps 35kg of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere - per bunch! In contrast, houseplants can be grown and shipped more leisurely using far more sustainable methods, making them a far more sustainable choice.

Being around plants can reduce stress, improve mood, and boost productivity. This means that gifting a houseplant to your loved one could also be a thoughtful gesture for their overall wellbeing. Houseplants are a gift not just for the heart, but mind, body and soul too.

Just like you, your partner and your relationship, houseplants are unique. They should be chosen based on the recipient's style and preferences for a gift that’s thoughtful and as unique as they are.

Houseplants are a thoughtful and long-lasting gift option that can have positive effects on both the environment and the wellbeing of your loved one.

So, think outside the bouquet this Valentine’s Day and choose houseplants.
