9 Steps to Creating Potted Plants to Impress whether you’re selling, letting, renting or buying

17 Jun 2014

Our regular guest blogger Ealing-based garden expert, Caro Sanders shares 9 simple steps to create potted plants that will impress. 

Potted plants are a great way to add a spot of colour to impress people viewing your property.  If you’re selling, you can always take the pots with you when you move to instantly brighten your new home, or if you’re a landlord you know the pots can be easily maintained by tenants without a huge investment.

Tenants who want to personalise their garden can use potted plants as a transportable option they can take to their next home if they decide they want to move on.

The verdict: potted plants are a great option for homes whether your are renting, letting, selling or buying. Bring it on!
