It's that time of the year when the sun shines bright outside our windows breathing new energy into our spaces. Talking about home decor, plants not only contribute to aesthetics but are a healthy choice. Indoor plants help reduce stress levels and keep the environment cool. They also improve the air quality by purifying the air.
You can always add an aesthetic look to your room and improve life quality with some fresh fragrances of flowering plants. We bring to you a list of fragrance plants you can adorn your interiors with-
You can find a variety of miniature roses, but the "scentsational" and "sweet chariot" hybrids are the most preferred when it comes to scented plants. They bloom many times a year.
One has to take care that the soil of this particular plant should stay slightly acidic and rich in nutrients. You can plant them in small pots or bottles with wider openings. Well if you want them to bloom fully remember them to keep outside once you enjoy them in the home. Place them in an area with bright sunlight but protect them from heat. Do not let the roots become too soggy and fertilize them in spring. While watering miniature roses, make sure plants have a proper drainage hole to prevent overmoisture.
Rosemary is part of the mint family. This plant has a distinct spicy smell. Not only does it fragrant in your house but you can also enjoy it as a seasonal herb in different dishes. Rosemary grows abundantly with minimal fuss. If you grow it in the warm weather, rosemary blooms throughout the year. It requires a sunny environment with nutrient-dense soil. Water the plant when it is dry.
If you live a busy lifestyle then lavender is best for you. This plant does not demand much maintenance. It works well where there is less moisture and humidity and suits them well. To promote new growth you can cut and trim the stems of plants. They are well known for their overall year scented quality. Maintain the soil of lavender well dried and only water them when soil becomes so dried. Lavenders grow happily in sunny and bright areas.
Fragrant tea olive
this tree has a fruit smell similar to peaches or apricots. Tea olive trees have almost 15 different species. Osmanthus fragrans blooms twice a year and is the most scented one. Allow them at least four hours of sunlight per day and keep the soil well-drained. The best part is they require less maintenance.
Its sweet smell will always make you feel pleasant. Not only the fragrance but one can also enjoy its leaves in different cuisines ranging from soups to pizzas. Water them regularly and make sure the plant is receiving morning sunlight with heat protectors like green sheets. Once it flowers, it loses flavour and starts to die, so continue to harvest the leaves frequently, and water them weekly.
These plants will add sudden positivity to your interiors and are one of the best gifting ideas as they promote a healthy environment.
