Dobbies is Selling Houseplants in Coconut Coir Pots

Dobbies Garden Centres has just launched a range of houseplants in sustainable coconut coir pots, starting from just £6.99.

Launching in stores across the UK this month, the collection of on-trend plants include Philodendron White Measure (£14.99), Sansevieria Snake Plant (£9.99), Hoya Heart (£6.99), Pleated Sansevieria (£6.99), Ficus Lyrata (£24.99), Cheese Plant (Minima) (£12.99), and Calathea Insignis (£14.99).

Each of the plants will come in an organic, degradable cultivation pot made from natural rubber and coconut shell. While Dobbies introduced a free plastic plant pot return service last year, this new initiative exists to offer more eco-friendly alternatives — and to help put an end to the half a million plastic plant pots ending up in landfill each year.

As well as being kind to the planet, the pots are easy to water, a by-product of coconut farms, and incredibly breathable too (coir pots also allow air to easily pass through the pot, supporting healthy root growth for plants).

‘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,’ says Claire Bishop, Houseplant Buyer at Dobbies Garden Centres.

‘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. Firm favourites that feature in the striking line-up include the ever-popular Calathea and an eye-catching Pleated Sansevieria.

‘Greenery made greener has been one of my favourite ranges to work on to-date and we hope customers love the range as much as we do.’
