Today’s Solutions: November 29, 2021

If, like us, you are a plant enthusiast, you’re probably worried whether your botanical friends will survive while you’re away on holiday. In a bid to put such worries to rest, an online plant shop has come up with a remarkable initiative — a hotel created exclusively for houseplants, where they can enjoy a vegetation vacation of their own while you’re away.

The Patch Plant Hotel is the brainchild of Freddie Blackett, who runs an online plant shop called Patch. Now, Patch operates as a service dedicated to putting customers at ease by tending to their plants. From pots to plant care, Patch offers a unique approach to personalized gardening. The best part? The service is free.

The hotel is located in North London and its booking process is quite straightforward. You input your holiday details — date of departure, date of return — and how many indoor and outdoor leafy friends you need to be homed during that time. The hotel manager then reaches out to you and advises you on picking up and dropping off your plants.

Both Patch and non-Patch customers are welcome to leave their plants at their hotel, which caters to a variety of greeneries and has suites from the sun-soaked to the shady depending on your plant’s preference. On top of that, the hotel even has a space service, with hand-powered misting and deep tissue drenching to ensure your botanicals stay hydrated and enjoy the ultimate wellness experience.
