We were told growing up that it’s not just about what you’ve got, (kick-ass plants and cool planters) it’s what you do with them that counts.

So, in that spirit, we have some plant styling tips to share with you this week!

First of all, take a look at this video piece we did for Singapore Women's Weekly, for something to visualise.

Now, first tip - more is more. When you’re trying to create a lush, dense, plant-filled look in a space, you really need to have A LOT of plants. It may take over a hundred to create the look you see on your favourite plant person’s feed and they’ve probably been gathering them for years. Have patience as you build them up but, if jungle is the look you want, don’t be afraid to bring in more plants than you even thought you had room for. You’ll be surprised how easily the space will absorb them.

Next - create some levels. Try to vary the height of your displays with stands, stools and any other secure, flat-surfaced pieces you have on hand. Your space will look much more interesting when the plants appear at multiple, uneven eye levels.

Also - vary the varieties. Even if you are the world’s biggest Aroid / [insert your favourite plant family] fan, you need variety to create an interesting display or you’ll end up looking like a plant farm! Bring in some ferns, succulent varieties, mosses as well as your favourite leafy plants. Wild is a great look- this year’s winning garden at the recent Chelsea Flower Show is proof of that.
