Here are the 5 trendiest plants right now

T render also comes and goes among houseplants. At the same time as some old favorites - such as the cactus - are making a comeback, we also see new upstarts. Right now, these 5 green plants are the trendiest, according to Plantagen.

1. Cactus

The cactus is the absolute trendiest houseplant of the year. From small flowering cacti to larger models, they are all equally easy to care for.

2. Monstera

Monstera is an easy-care, stately plant that with its large, green leaves helps to create a natural and lush oasis in the room.

3. Aralia

Aralia is recognizable by its white-patterned deep-lobed leaves. It is one of the best plants for absorbing formaldehyde from the air.

4. Elephant ear

Elephant ear is a real retro plant that was very popular in the 1970s, but it has received a real boost in recent years. The plant is recognizable by its large, round leaves.

5. Klockkalanchoe

Klockkalanchoe is called "Magic Bells" due to its hanging "bells". It is a fast-growing trend plant from Madagascar that works just as well outdoors in spring and summer, as indoors in autumn and winter.

The garden barometer - this is how the Swedes want their garden

The Garden Barometer for 2013 indicates that there is great interest in gardening. What we do indoors we want to be able to do outside, cook, socialize, swim and sleep. This makes us want to decorate several rooms outside. 6 out of 10 Swedes also believe that a well-kept garden affects or is decisive when changing homes.

The Garden Barometer is a report with trends and facts about garden interest in the Nordic countries. The report is produced in a collaboration between HUI Research and Plantagen. The study, which was conducted in February 2013, asked more than 3,000 consumers in Sweden, Norway and Finland about their views on various garden issues. In addition, nine in-depth interviews were conducted with the industry's garden experts in each country but also internationally. The report shows that the garden fulfills an important function in our lives. It gives us peace and a sense of freedom - it is the place where we follow developments over time and which we ourselves can influence. The results point to three clear trends.

Trend 1: The natural nature - In terms of style and content, it is close to nature at the entrance with vegetation such as trees, bracts, mosses and grass. Things that are found wild in our Nordic nature. We grow more and more edible and now also welcome small insects and animals in the garden. We see that they are a prerequisite for all life in the garden. The cultivation must be environmentally friendly and the cultivation of the edible increases - mainly spices and vegetables. 6 out of 10 Swedes believe that the most important thing in the garden is that it is easy to maintain and that it is a place to relax.

“We see a return to old varieties of trees and shrubs that we know thrive in our climate naturally. When it comes to bulbous plants, this means that people like to buy narcissus, allium and botanical tulips that reproduce themselves, ”says Jasper van der Zon, Chief Designer at the world's largest flower garden, the Keukenhof tulip park in the Netherlands.

Trend 2: Rebellious Colors - This year's colors are obsessive. If you want to be at the forefront, you should invest in bright colors and preferably in combination. Leaf plants, tools, furniture and textiles are colorful. The colors are available in both variegated combinations and solid colors.

"The whole blog world is sold on zinnia, they are available in many wonderful colors," says Anna Hedrén, Landscape Engineer who runs the garden blog Anna Vattenkanna's Garden.

Trend 3: Outside even more inside - The interior design boom continues outside. Now we are not content with simple outdoor furniture. We want to decorate nature and have several garden rooms. The trend is also noticeable in that women and younger people are more likely than others to buy gardening services. 4 out of 10 would like help from a garden architect, which is more than those who want help from a gardener - the design is important.

On the top list of the things we want to invest in for the garden are outdoor furniture, barbecue but also this year's newcomer garden lighting.

“If you put out a certain job, you can do other things, such as enjoying your garden. We all want to have at least one summer day with Hipp Hipp Hurra - feeling ", says Hannu Sarenström Garden Inspirer and author who runs the blog Hannu at Kinnekulle.

The plantation's vision is to create Europe's most inspiring gardens together with our customers. Knowledge of customers' views and knowledge of future trends is an essential part of the work to achieve the vision.

“The Garden Barometer gives us a better understanding of how our customers think and what they dream about. For us, it is important that we share those insights. As Sweden's and the Nordic region's leading garden chain, we have an ambition to make knowledge and inspiration available. That is why we are investing in the Garden Barometer", Says Erik Angervall, CEO, Plantagen Sverige.
