The Most Plant-Obsessed city

One interior trend that has taken the UK by storm throughout lockdown is house-plants. The debate on how to care for house plants as well as the mental boost they give us has been widely discussed in the last twelve months. Lockdown has clearly made us prioritise a calm and comfortable atmosphere in our own homes. 
















In light of this, leading interior company Dowsing & Reynolds decided to look into this further. They collected Google Search Data from the last twelve months to look at which UK city (per capita) is obsessed with house plants the most - here are the key findings: 


Key Findings: 

  • Bristol is the most plant-obsessed city with the biggest search volume of 1024 per capita 

  • Leeds came out second with 759 searches per capita 

  • The North kept on winning with Newcastle having 713 searches per capita

  • Edinburgh also came in 4th place with 701 searches per capita
