Blue Star Fern with Basket - 21cm


Scientific name: Phlebodium Aureum
Origin: Central AmericaThailand / Northern Queensland and Christmas Island, Australia / Hawaii, USA

Each graceful frond is like a helping hand, sucking CO2 out and pushing Oxygen back into the air. The soft, grey-green colour and elegant shape make this popular with interior design enthusiasts. Phlebodium brightens a room and looks beautiful grouped with other plants of varying shapes and sizes. The design ‘Rule of 3’ states that things arranged in odd numbers are more visually appealing, so try it with an asplenium and a ginseng ficus.

Every plant is nurtured, potted and beautifully packaged in the prison glasshouses.

Grow your houseplant collection with help from The Glasshouse, a social enterprise creating opportunities for ex-offenders through horticulture. 

Their plants start life in the glasshouses at HM Prison East Sutton Park in Kent, where ex-offenders grow and nurture them. While working on the project, they train for a level 2 RHS horticultural qualification, learning everything from propagation to design. The programme is a stepping stone – away from past mistakes and the prospect of reoffending, towards a fresh start and employment in the future.

As well as the practical horticulture skills, hanging out with plants has some amazing benefits for people involved in the project too – as it can for everyone. Being close to nature and greenery can bring productivity levels up, anxiety levels down, fill the air with more oxygen and be a positive influence in many other ways. 

The Glasshouse continues to support ex-offenders who join their project beyond their time in the glasshouses too, helping the women keep moving forward upon release. The two things which most often lead to reoffending are lack of secure housing and employment. So, they help in linking people up with job placements and housing. 

Add to your houseplant family with one of their lovingly raised plants and know it’s already been a force for good.
