The Hibiscus is a popular conservatory plant from Spring to Autumn. This exotic flowering plant loves to be positioned in direct sunlight, in a well ventilated environment. So conservatories are a fantastic room for Hibiscus. A Hibiscus likes to be well watered during the growing season as this helps flowers to blossom healthily. In Britain, the Hibiscus plant can be grown indoors in a large pot, blooming a variety of bright, tropical colours.

Pandorea Jasminoides will blossom all summer long if they are properly cared for and are exposed to full sunlight. For best results, you need to feed them fortnightly with a high-potash fertiliser such as tomato feed, and prune back after flowering. With a mix of multipurpose compost and a loam based compost, the Pandorea Jasminoides will flower beautifully.

Venus Fly Trap

Venus Fly Trap plants are very attractive and grow extremely well in conservatories. They are happy with the UK summer climate, as long as they are treated well. You will notice a wonderful variety of leaves throughout the growing season, from heart-shaped petioles in the Spring, to elongated petioles produced in the summer. It may surprise you that they are a great form of natural pest control in your conservatory and are able to catch a wide variety of insects, such as wasps, spiders and small slugs. When you buy them, they will already be growing in a suitable compost and won’t need repotting until the following year, where they like to be planted inside a larger container that holds water.

Why Choose Venus Fly Trap?

  • Fascinating Houseplant

  • Ideal for Conservatories

  • Natural Pest Control

  • Suitable for large containers

How to Choose your Plant

Due to conservatories being different temperatures, it is important to consider carefully before you buy your Spring plants. This is because plants will grow better in various conditions. You need to figure out the temperature of your conservatory at different times of the day, so you know which plants will thrive best.

A warm conservatory can sometimes reach up to 15-20 degrees, if it allows direct sunlight through the windows. This type of conservatory is perfect for those tropical and exotice plants that are happier in a warmer climate. Whereas a cooler conservatory can drop to 4-7 degrees, so they are only suitable for tender plants such as Calamondin Tree which flowers best in colder temperatures.
