What is Preserved Foliage
Preserved foliage uses real plants replacing the natural sap with glycerine solution and adding natural food dyes to enhance the colours.

The preserved foliage feels soft and natural. This type of foliage is not suitable for humid environments for example swimming pools and in external areas, as leaking of the natural oils and dyes may occur with possible staining.

To clean; regular light dusting is best, water could damage the foliage or flowers.
Fire Retardent foliage if required, will meet British standards and certificate can be provided.

Health Benefits of Plants

So why have plants in the work place?
They create an individual working environment and bring colour into the room. They give a feeling of well-being and create a live atmosphere; they are beneficial for a positive mood and help to overcome stress.
In many workplaces the air is too dry and contains harmful substances which can cause health problems. Common complaints are a dry throat, headache, dizziness, fatigue and irritated eyes. Placing air-purifying plants can reduce these health complaints significantly. Plants release moisture into the air, absorb heat and noise, and absorb and break down harmful substances.
