About Areca palm

Fabulous green fronds fill any space the Areca palm calls home, second only to the massive Monstera in its popularity and standout nature.

It's an air-purifying wonder, with added humidity boosting abilities for those who find their living or working spaces just a little too dry. The Areca looks great and makes those who see it feel good too, thanks to the amazing power of nature and greenery.

It hails originally from the tropics of Madagascar (though ours come from the UK), so you can be sure of an added tropical vibe when you add an Areca to your home.

Liven up your living room, dress up your dining room, or just create a tropical paradise wherever you please with this top-tier palm!

About Kookaburra

Kookaburra sail shades were born from a desire to bring a modern look and feel to UK gardens. Every garden with a kookaburra sail shade stands out, while those underneath it get to enjoy sun (and rain) protection without sacrificing style.

They’re hard-wearing and come with a 2-year warranty so you can rest easy in the shade, installable in less than an afternoon. Our sail shades come in both waterproof and breathable varieties, where cool air can pass and hot air can escape, creating the perfect place to sit on a hot day.

We love bringing quick and stylish shade to our customer’s gardens, and with multiple shapes available there’s always a sail that suits. Over 500 colourful and high-quality sail shades are available, and we love to see our customer’s photos of sails covering barbecues, patios, lawns and more!

The extra-large, air-purifying, mood-enhancing, super palm.

The Areca palm has earned its spot in the house plant hall of fame. Its low maintenance behaviour has ensured it is an office favourite, but more recently homeowners have been clambering to snap them up for their air purifying and mood enhancing properties. The Areca is rated as one of the best air humidifiers too, which is said to relieve a multitude of ailments such as dry skin during the winter.

Perfect for brightening up a kitchen or living room, this palm will be just as happy in your conservatory too. This particular plant is already quite mature and will create an instant impact when it arrives at your door.

Please note, all of our house plants arrive in a nursery pot as standard. You can find a more permanent home for your plant in our wide range of indoor plant pots.

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).
