Beyond the Potted Palm: Victorians and Their House Plants

The Victorian Era was also England’s Golden Age of Plant Exploration. It was a time when public’s growing interest in natural history and their obsession with “collecting” came together around plants. The variety of house plants available for purchase burgeoned during Queen Victoria’s reign.  Ever after, Brits and we Americans have been in love with them. Not only can house plants compliment and enhance any room’s decor, but NASA studies confirm their ability to remove indoor air pollution. Learn about many of the plants that populated Victorian parlors, how to care for them and simple ways to bring a Victorian touch to plantscaping your home.
