Anyone who is anyone cannot truly call themselves a millennial unless their flat is stuffed to the gunnels with a jungle of tropical plants.

No windowsill or flat service is safe from a plethora of twisting leaves and no urban space is complete without them. But despite the trend taking off in recent years, many of us do not have a clue in what to do when it comes to keeping our house plants happy.

Many of us are quite literally stabbing in the dark with our house plants and experimenting with water, light and heat until we get to a point where they don’t seem to die – which is why we are in serious need of some education.

Join The Counter House and well-known house plant experts I Want Plants for a workshop like no other on Thursday 27th June at 6:30 pm.

If you have ever stepped inside the uber-chill environment of The Counter House, you will know that one of their most impressive features is their epic living wall of plants. This wall is carefully tended by the guys at I Want Plants on a weekly basis which keeps it looking fresh and healthy.

These guys seriously know their stuff – that much is easy to see, and they fancied sharing some of this expert knowledge with the people of Manchester at this one off exclusive event.

You will learn all the tricks of the trade to make the most out of your urban jungle. Learn all the names of the plants you love along with their needs and how to keep them strong and healthy and pest-free.

I Want Plants will also run through the basics of re-potting and pruning so your green babies can grow impressively large and thrive as best they can in your home environment.

You will also enjoy a complimentary welcome drink from The Counter House and some delicious nibbles to snack on while you sit back and learn. You will also leave with a little gift from I Want Plants to take home with you to put your new found skills to the test!

Come down to The Counter House and learn everything you need to know to balance your green thumb with your busy metropolitan life.
