Grow fresh air in your house! One of the best air purifiers is the Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum). Listed as one of the “Top air filtering" plants rated on a research study by NASA, the Peace Lily offers greenery, beautiful white flowers, and the ability to remove toxins from the air. Moist soil and moderate sunlight keeps it happy.

|Your brief article is a good reminder at this time of year.|
I am bringing in tender plants as it is going to get cold and stay cold this time.

|Great reminder. Besides being good for indoor air quality, I love indoor plants just for their beauty. |
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

I seldom get online much so was surprised to see this tip; I'd forgotten I submitted it, too!
But yep, time to bring those plants in-doors, for most of us anyway. CarolineScott, I'm always amazed out much you get out of the "season" in your area. You must have green toes as well as a green thumb!
My "in-door plants" right now, in addition to Spathephylum, are long stalks of black oil sunflower hanging to dry so I have seed for the birds this winter. It's an eerie sight but will eventually be a pretty one when the birds come a'singing on the colder winter days! :>)
Happy Day to all!

|This year has been a longer frost free season than usual.|
We work at protecting plants with covers etc. in case of frost.
