About Monstera deliciosa
Monstera deliciosa is the house plant for drawing attention and purifying the air. Available in sizes from tidy desk to floor-to-ceiling wonders, it's no wonder the Monstera is our most popular house plant year after year.
It's great for starter house plant owners who aren't sure of how to care for them - all you need to do is give it water when it's dry and you're good to go. They hail from tropical forests in Central America, so they're used to making the most of any water and space they can get and growing quickly when they can.
Choose a moss pole for trained and maintained height, or go free form for a Monstera that's as individual as you are.
Whichever you choose, that moment the leaves pop out of the box is one to remember!

Sail Shade Kits
Installing a sail shade means fittings, and we've got everything you need in one handy kit - available in two great styles
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!

A jungle giant made perfect for every homeOne of the most iconic and recognisable house plants, the Monstera Deliciosa has been a favourite for decades now. Very easy to grow the monstera is the perfect variety for beginners who want a big impact plant for their collection. Originally from the tropical forests of Mexico these plants can grow over 60 feet tall in the wild. Indoors they are a little more tame, but their fast growth and large leaves make them a favourite for many. The characteristic leaves will slowly unfurl and darken to a beautiful deep green and the older the plant the more perforations will appear on the leaves; a trait which earned it the name of 'Swiss Cheese Plant'. Monstera's can be displayed in a number of ways, either trained to climb up, usually with the assistance of a moss pole, or left to spread out wild and care free. NASA has also rated the monstera as one of the best air purifying houseplants.

Show off your plant in style
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.
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).
