September has come around, kids are back off to school and many of us will have been invited back to work in the office.
Working from home has been a blessing for so many of us and the idea of returning back to the office can be quite daunting. Long commutes, busy trains, awful canteen coffee and an uninviting environment are all things we'd all rather leave behind.
We've compiled a list of (almost) indestructible plants that you can use add a bit of cheer to your office environment. Not only are these plants incredibly easy to look after but they're also amazing at brightening up a dull environment, purifying the air and boosting your mood.
Check out some of our favourites!
