Chloe's top tip for planting plants in pots
"Choose a pot that's about twice the size of the original nursery pot and use premium quality potting mix."


Her favourite low fuss indoor plants:

"Zanzibar Gem (aka ZZ plant) and Snake Plant (aka Mother in Law's Tongue) are some of the easiest to grow. The ZZ plant will tolerate really low light conditions and both it and the Snake Plant don't need much water. 

Devil's Ivy is also really easy going too if you'd like a trailing or climbing plant!"

 What is Chloe's go to potting mix?

"Use a premium quality potting mix, it will have red & white ticks on the bag to show it's premium. You get what you pay for!"

Recommendations of the best varieties of plants to pot in Autumn:

"Spring flowering bulbs are great for a colourful display later in the year. Cool season annuals like pansies and violas, herbs like coriander, parsley and mint. Indoor plants and succulents are perfect for year round colour and interest."
