Help them all grow big and strong by giving them a feed with liquid fertiliser once a month in spring and summer.
Producing flowers is thirsty work, so give them a drink whenever the top two inches of soil feel dry.
To produce flowers plants need a lot of light. They’ll all love a spot that’s bright but not in harsh direct sunlight.
When flowers wilt, remove them and you’ll encourage the plant to produce more. For Jethro, just pinch them off. For Pippa and Fleur, snip off the whole stem.

About this set
It’s not just outdoor plants that bloom. Lots of indoor plants can produce flowers too. And others can give you a splash of vibrant colour with just their leaves. Treat them right and this set will give you colour through spring and far beyond.
The set without pots includes:
Fleur - This anthurium is a champion flowerer. With the right amount of light and regular feeding she can produce flowers all through the year. Interestingly, the eye-catching red parts aren’t actually flowers. They’re special leaves designed to attract insects to the flowers, which are on the yellow part.
Pippa - The peace lily is as strong as she is beautiful. Her big dark green leaves are joined by simple white flowers in spring. You’ll know when it’s time to water her because her leaves will flop, then quickly perk up after a drink. Please note that while she’ll be happy in shade she’ll produce a lot more flowers in brighter light.
Jethro - He’s commonly known as the lipstick plant. The reasons for that are obvious when you see his flowers. They emerge like red lipsticks, before opening into little trumpets. Even when not in flower he looks gorgeous, with long stems covered in tiny leaves. He likes bright light and quite moist soil.
Aggie - This Chinese evergreen doesn’t flower, but she doesn’t need to. She’s always colourful. Her green leaves are streaked with red, making her a total stunner. Keep her in a bright spot, because lots of light (not direct sun) makes her colours more vibrant.
The set with pots also includes:
Clay pot - Clean lines and hard-wearing materials make this an indoor plant pot built to last.
Ceramic glazed pot - The finish on these cute and colourful pots gives them a stylish vintage feel.
