We are abiding by the UK Government's New November Guidelines with handling COVID-19. We are open for business as usual with a deliveries only service. Please be aware there can be some additional delays of 3-7 working days on top of normal operation times we provide due to the lockdown in place in the UK.

Anna Dean speaks about the special aspects of window gardening.
Anna, there is a wide variety of flower pots and planters on the market. What criteria was the most important when you chose the LECHUZA SELF-WATERING PLANTER and preferred it to any other?Anna Dean: That planter is good-looking, handy and convenient. There is a wide choice of planters in the product line and they’re never out of stock.
The planter is one of the only ones that can be relied on. Plants can be left in the trust of the planter with no fear of the drought.
What plants do you grow at home, including those for which you use LECHUZA?A.D.: There are different flowers, trees and shrubs growing in my planters. I set Impatien, Petunia, Viola, Ageratum, Arctotis, Tagetes, Dianthus and many others into planters in the summertime.
For indoor decoration I plant Anthurium, Ficus, Orchids, Peace Lily, Chrysalidocarpus, Date and Dracaena.
How long have you been planting? Do you have any favorite plant species?A.D.: I’ve been surrounded by plenty of flowers from a young age. My mother likes them and so do I. My favorites are, for sure, orchids and different types of palm trees.
Have you been confronted with any difficulties while handling plants? How do you overcome these difficulties?A.D.: Plants without proper watering droop from drought during business trips or while you’re away from home for long periods of time. But I did the trick and I don’t have this kind of problem now, thanks to planters with self-watering system, which always bail me out!
How does LECHUZA help with the process of handling plants?A.D.: These planters are the only ones that lovely greens and flowers can rely on.
Do you notice a difference in plant growth between LECHUZA and other pots?A.D.: Certainly there is a difference. Typical pots often check the growth of plants, but brand LECHUZA is spacious and the soil is sated with water and fertilizers.
Modern-day flowerpots should be functional and stylish at the same time, so they and their plants take an active part in creating interior design. What is more important to you – functionality or how the planter matches the design?A.D.: First of all, functionality, and then design. With such range of forms and colors in the planters, there is no difficulty in choosing one for you.
Where is the zest in planting for you?A.D.: The pleasure in planting for me is in enjoying my green, blossoming plants.
Do you place plants on the balcony during the spring-autumn period?A.D.: I set plenty of different flowers on the balcony every spring. They grow until first chill. And so on every year.
Flowers on the balcony are not just beautiful. They are lavish, blossoming compositions which attract the attention of passers-by. And almost everybody is glad to see flowers.
Do you use tips and recommendations from florists or the internet, or just go with your gut and trust your own feelings?A.D.: I always lean on my mother’s and my own opinion, but sometimes, of course, I can read some advice on the internet.
Where do you prefer to buy new plants?A.D.: I myself go after new plants in large floral shops, so I can feel, see and understand what I need. I don’t buy plants online. I had a negative experience purchasing greens online. When you see a picture, it’s lovely, but then on delivery it is not the same.
What suggestions can you give to our readers if they want to grow their own plants at home?A.D.: Jump in and don’t have any doubts. As I have written before, flowers are like kids. They are a delight for the eye and they indulge the soul!
What advice can you give to a reader who is thinking of buying a LECHUZA SELF-WATERING PLANTER?A.D.: I hope you never have any doubts in your choices. Plants need comfort and coziness. Your plants will feel comfortable in these planters, and you can easily take care of them.
Love your flowers and they’ll love you back. They will make you happy with their bright green colors and splendid blossom.
