Introducing Dobbies’ brand new range of sustainable houseplants 

The UK’s leading garden centre retailer, Dobbies Garden Centre, is delighted to announce the launch of their coir pot houseplant range, launching in stores across the UK this month.

Giving homes a natural healthy boost, the latest collection of on-trend indoor greenery at Dobbies have added green credentials, being planted up in sustainable coconut coir pots.

Houseplant Buyer, Claire Bishop, who has been working on the range behind the scenes, 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. 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.” 

 The coir pot houseplant range in a (coco)nutshell –  

  • Eco-friendly – The plants come in organic, degradable cultivation pots which are made from natural rubber and coconut shell
  • Breathable – Breathing life into any room of your home, coir pots also allow air to easily pass through the pot, supporting healthy root growth for plants
  • Easy to water – Water can easily pass through the coir pot, reducing the chance of overwatering
  • Biodegradable – Coir pots have a life span of two years; houseplants will need to be re-potted anyway to a bigger pot by the time the coir pot degrades
  • Waste not want not – Coconut shells that make coir pots are a by-product of coconut farms, making use of husks that would go unused.
