Realistic, low maintenance artificial plants

If you like the idea of low (or no) maintenance gardening then you’ve come to the right place. Artificial plants are perfect alternatives to their needy natural counterparts. They look fantastic all year round, will grow in any environment and won’t die if you forget to water them. What’s more, they require none of the following regular chores: watering, feeding, deadheading, pruning, training, regular re-potting… we could go on, but you’d be here a while!

Our range of fake plants have been hand-picked from suppliers across the globe. We compare each product against their botanical counterparts and similar fake plants and select the one which we feel best replicates the natural version.

Using Artificial Plants

Not everyone has a south facing garden or a bio-dome to grow tropical plants, some of us are forgetful and totally forget to feed and/ or water plants and others just aren’t interested in gardening. Artificial plants are the perfect solution!

Fake plants require virtually no on-going maintenance making them a popular option in offices, holiday homes, restaurants, pubs etc. They also make perfect replacements for plants which are typically hard to grow in the UK such as silk orchids, palm trees and the like.

We offer a wide range of artificial plants which are suitable for indoor use as well as some which are UV stable for outdoor use. Ranging from large artificial plants like sugar cane and bamboo, potted plants like window boxes and hanging baskets all the way to ivy bushes and small succulents; we have your home and garden covered.

Realistic look, superb quality

All of our artificial plants are handmade from a range of materials including polyethylene plastic, steel, natural wood and polyester. The materials will vary from plant to plant, the quality will not. We check our fake plants vigorously against their natural counterpart to ensure they look realistic.

Planting and potting

As we hold a wide and varied range of artificial plants, the potting options vary dramatically. Each fake plant will have clear planting and potting tips within their descriptions. Some of the plants will be pre-potted and others will have optional planters.

Some of our artificial plants like ivy and flowering bushes come on spikes. These can be inserted into a foam oasis, planted in soil or into one of our planters.

Full planting tips and advice can be found in The Potting Shed.

Maintaining your artificial plant

Artificial plants are perfect for low maintenance gardeners. You can’t kill them, you don’t need to water them and they look great year after year – what more could you ask for?

To keep your fake plant looking fresh, take it outside once in a while and give it a good shake. Then use a soft bristle paint brush to clean any dust or dirt from each piece of foliage.
