Christmas is brely over, but Thejoyofplants.co.uk is already preparing for their "Christmas tree out, Houseplant in" campaign.

Christmas tree out

Many people might not know this, but even around the Christmas tree, some etiquette exists. Traditionally in the UK, Christma trees should be down by the 12th night after Christmas. Even this has two possible dates, the 5th or 6th January.

Real trees are usually cleared between 9 - 13 January (but it's worth checking with the local council). But what do you do with the empty space left behind by your Christmas tree? The solution is very simple: fill the void with a nice big houseplant. A houseplant is the perfect replacement for your Christmas tree, and a sure way to start the New Year off on a green note!

The Joy of Plants have chosen a Ficus elastica more commonly known as a Rubber plant. But you could chose an attractive Ficus Lyrata (aka Fiddle Leaf fig) or even a Monstera (swiss cheese plant). It's great to carry on the green tree tradition in yiour home all year round.
