We get it, the cost of living is going up and up and UP! More than ever, we need the calming benefits of plants; but how can you transform your space without breaking the bank? In this budget-friendly gardening guide, we'll show you how to become a master of houseplants without draining your wallet. 

  1. Explore thrift stores to find hidden treasures: Pretty much anything can be a plant pot if you're brave enough! Ditch the expensive ceramics, and find pre-loved gems like affordable pots, unique planters, and even pre-loved plants looking for a loving owner. 

  2. Swap plants with friends: As our passion for plants increases, there's plenty of planty people ready to participate in a swap (or even, just to gift their spare green babes). Ask for cuttings and unwanted greenery to grow your houseplant collection in an affordable way. Use We the Wild to give them a leg up, and you'll have healthy houseplants in no time!

  3. Propogate your plants: This is the ultimate affordable plant hack. So many plants can be propagated either in soil, water or soilless mediums like leca.

    Hot tip: Support Pellets are the ultimate way to get those roots bursting!

  4. Start from seed: It can be pretty cool to watch something transform from a seed, to a fully fledged plant. Whether you're growing your own veggies, or sprouting something far more exotic. Patience is key, but the results are worth it!

  5. Care for your existing plants: We waste so much money on dead plants! Focus on easy to care for and versatile varieties, and keep them thriving. Trusty monsteras, snake plants and devils ivy are a sure bet when it comes to growing a thriving indoor jungle with less risk.

Remember, prevention is the best cure. Keeping your plants well fed, healthy and cared for will help you save money in the long run. Happy gardening!
