Despite the weather, we're firmly hanging onto to that summer feeling with the Hydrangea. This natural mood booster can bring the sunshine inside, all year round. With its robust appearance, the Hydrangea is like a holiday in a vase.

The story of Aloe 
Very tough, strong shapes and easy to live with: Aloe (officially known as: Aloe vera) has thick blue-green leaves which reach a length of 40-50 cm and grow up in spikes from a rosette up to a maximum of 100 cm. The leaves are greyish green and have serrated edges. Aloe is an exceptionally resilient plant which stores moisture and nutrients in the leaves in order to get through dry periods. The plant blooms in the summer, and helps keep the air in your home clean.
