One thing people want on property programmes is ‘outside space’. It’s a common human desire to be surrounded by life-giving greenery.
But increasingly, they want plants indoors, too. Forget a few herbs or bulbs in a window-box; in 2017, the trend is to think big with massive lush leaves growing everywhere: in the conservatory, of course, but also in the kitchen, bathroom, and dining room.
These inspiring looks are as revitalising as they are exciting.

SARAH SAYS
‘Do I like the jungle trend? The more the merrier, I say – you simply can’t have enough mature greenery in the home. All that really matters is keeping it properly maintained, which means pruning it.’
