Right Plant Right Place: Plants perfect for a kitchen

The kitchen is often the hub of the house, so a great place to have lots of plants. Try growing your favourite herbs on the windowsill, for easy access whilst cooking. Choose plants that enjoy humidity and are able to tolerate heat.

Plants we recommend for a kitchen:

Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen)
Loves a dull spot and needs little attention

Aloe
All varieties will do well, but have some
Aloe vera on hand, if you burn yourself on the oven

Asparagus Fern
An easy to care for fern, which will look fab
on your kitchen worktop

Chlorophytum (Spider Plant)
Will give a splash of bright green to any kitchen

Dracaena (Dragon Tree)
Great specimen plant that can give you the wow factor

Epipremnum (Devils Ivy)
Lots of varieties that can look lovely trailing
over your kitchen shelves

Nephrolepis (Boston Fern)
Keep out of direct sunlight and ensure it is always kept damp

Phalaenopsis (Moth Orchid)
Enjoys the high humidity of the kitchen

Pilea (Chinese Money Plant)
An interesting easy to care for variety

Sansevieria (Snake Plant)
The easiest of all to care for as it’s not demanding and is extremely tolerant

Stephanotis (Madagascar Jasmine)
A scented plant great to deter unwanted kitchen smells
