Houseplant obsession! And we have the perfect tools for the job...

We freely admit, we are fully caught up in the ongoing passion for indoor planting. Our office is crammed to the rafters with beautiful greenery - as you can see from this snap of a not-atypical filing cabinet! Having plants on every available surface makes us happy, and all our visitors comment on the lush leafiness. Plants makes our lives better, it's as simple as that.

To complement our beloved plants, last year we brought out our own collection of indoor plant pots. And now we have turned our toolmaking expertise to creating some high quality, comfortable-to-use precision tools developed specifically for houseplant care.

This new collection of specialist tools makes caring for houseplants easy, even for non-plant experts. So many homes reflect the current trend for indoor greenery – and this new houseplant care collection means everyone can have healthy, well-kept houseplants, whether they think of themselves as a 'gardener' or not.

In our new houseplant tools collection, there’s a specialist houseplant pruner with curved blades, to isolate spent stems and leaves for cutting; orchid snips for precision pruning and floristry; a set of small, long-handled tools perfect for terrariums as well as small cacti and succulents; and Japanese pruning scissors, ideal for particular pruning requirements of bonsai.

We particularly love the houseplant pruner for our office plants. It's useful for everything from fine trimming of our asparagus ferns, to removing past-their-sell-by-date leaves from Ursula, our monstera deliciosa (Swiss cheese plant).

You may have seen these tools in the press, as they've been featured in both the Sunday Express and the Guardian gift guides. We love them, the papers love them, and we really hope that you love them! You should start seeing them in garden centres around now, or of course you can buy them here.

At just £9.99, they make an ideal stocking filler or secret Santa, or a lovely add-on if you're giving a houseplant at Christmas. Or simply treat yourself, to keep your plantbabies happy and healthy!
