Keeping indoor plants was thought of as such by the Victorians. However keeping plants in pots goes back at least as far as Egyptian times. Indeed all ancient civilisations were known to keep plants in pots for a variety of reasons.
Terracotta pots were vital in the transportation of plants around the world thus giving us such a rich diversity of choice when we buy our pot plants today. After the Victorians the idea of keeping plants in pots indoors grew and grew and huge nurseries and greenhouses now supply our ever increasing demands.
This next charity shop find is a painting done in acrylic by B. Goodall. The original price on the back is £40.
