Dobbie’s new coir pot houseplant range is a stylish and sustainable addition to any home. The pots are made from natural rubber and coconut shell and are biodegradable, following a two-year lifecycle. The coconut shells are a by-product of coconut farms, making used of husks that would usually be wasted.
The plant remains the focal point with vivid green succulents and houseplants contrasting with the simple shape and finish of the neutral pots.
Dobbie’s Houseplant Buyer, Claire Bishop, who has been working on the range said:
“Houseplants are naturally a happy home update and the launch of the coir pot range has the added benefit of not only being good for your home, but good for the environment too.
“We are always looking at ways to enhance the environmentally-friendly credentials of our collections and the coir pots stood out to us as a must-have addition, being made from natural, organic materials that are fully degradable.”
According to the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), introducing indoor plants can promote an improvement in mood, productivity, stress levels, reaction speed and attention span as well as a reduction in blood pressure, fatigue and headaches. With more people working from home, the enhancement to both physical and psychological health by increased air quality from plants is undeniably beneficial.
Even if you do not consider yourself to be ‘green-fingered’, the new coir pots allow water to pass through meaning you’re less likely to drown a plant and the air can easily pass through, supporting healthy root growth.
The range includes Calathea – famous for its decorative leaves and the Hoya Heart priced at £6.99, both low-maintenance, affordable and an attractive addition to any home.
