Indoor Plants for Your Outdoor Summer House

Just because your outdoor summer house is surrounded by greenery, that shouldn’t stop you bringing some plants inside. Caring for indoor plants can be a different beast if you’re only familiar with plants that live outside.

Lots of outdoor plants in modern gardens are low maintenance. If you’re not a seasoned gardener, it might be sensible to go for indoor plants that are also easy to care for.

When choosing plants for your outdoor summer house, you need to do a little research. Certain things need to be considered, such as how often you’re likely to be in your outdoor room. If you normally only spend a couple of days a week out there, can you commit to watering daily? If your summer house is in a sun spot, will the plants cope well with the heat in the summer?

Whatever you choose, a quick Google search will tell you whether the plants will fit into your lifestyle.

Indoor Plants for Your Outdoor Summer House

The size of your outdoor summer house will play a large part in helping choose plants that are the best fit. An overpoweringly tall indoor plant might not be a sensible option for a tiny outdoor room. Equally, you might prefer a larger plant to populate bare areas in a spacious garden room.

This list suggests plants of all sizes that will look great in a summer house.

Dragon Tree

Dragon trees are fabulous floor plants that can up to two metres tall. They leaves branch off from a central stalk, with the weight of the larger ones causing them to drop and lean, creating a full appearance. If you have a large summer house and don’t wish to cram in more furniture, these plants are also a great way of filling a room.

Succulents & Cacti

If smaller, low maintenance plants are more your style, consider getting a mix of potted succulents and cacti. These plants are often seen together because they’re similar to care for and available in similar sizes. They’re so commonly bought together that some plant shops will run a pick ‘n’ mix style offer for you to choose a small selection. While you may choose to cultivate your group of tiny plants, there’s no denying they look stylish on display side by side on window ledges and word tops.

Monstera Deliciosa

Also known as the Swiss Cheese plan, this air purifying house plant can survive even novice plant owners. It has large, rich green leaves that can add a splash of colour to any interior. These are popular plants for home office owners but don’t like too much direct sunlight. Consider how much light your garden room gets before opting for this potted plant.

Coffee Plant

The perfect indoor plant for coffee-lovers, the coffea arabica may even produce beans if it’s cared for correctly. Keep these plants away from pets as all parts of the plant are toxic to cats and dogs. If you’re a pet owner, it’s probably best to give this plant a miss.
