With a host of exciting new products in 2017, Baby Bio?, the trusted ?go to? brand for indoor plant care is set to rejuvenate the houseplant sector in garden centres.

Christina Bouzala, group brand manager at SBM Life Science explained: ?People who understand how to care for their houseplants and recognise the value of feeding are likely to spend more, which is good news for garden centres.??With this in mind, we?re using our social media platforms to show why and how to feed houseplants.??We?re also giving consumers a new, exciting range of products that will help them keep their houseplants vibrant, bright and colourful.

?Garden centres that want to capitalise on this opportunity need to place houseplant food alongside the houseplants themselves in store to drive sales.?
