Spathiphyllum ‘sensation’ peace Lily for a darker spot

Areca Palm for a brighter spot

Work in a plant shop so PM me if you need more advice Smiling

Areca Palm is the sort of thing the Mrs wants which would be sound as it’s going in quite a slim area.

Thanks darko, pm’d Cool

Mine's just said the same!

I didn't need to provide other details though, is that for people who haven't setup a Gov Gateway ID?

South Lodge could be an option. Owned by the group that owns Penny Hill Park and have just opened a 10m spa and leisure complex with natural outdoor pools etc.

Its near Horsham.
