Herbs, indoor and decorative plants in Khurja pottery at Nature’s Gift

If you love greenery, but don’t quite know how to grow some, bring one of these pretty potted plants by Nature’s Gift home. This isn’t quite a nursery, where you can buy plants from. Neither is this a pottery store, to pick upcolourful pots from. What they do is sell potted plants for indoor and outdoor use. And, they would like Lucknow folks to start gifting each other plants, instead of bouquets, on special occasions. Great idea, and it’s becoming especially popular among corporates. From adeniums, ficus, peace lily, ferns, dracaena, jade and other succulents, they have a large variety of greens in pots of different colours, shapes and sizes that are easy to maintain and pocket-friendly. The pots are trendy, and ethnic, depending on what you like.

The proceeds from the sales of these plants support the education of underprivileged children. And the enterprise is managed by such children themselves. Just that should be reason enough for us to buy plants from here.

What Nature’s Gift has that others don’t are potted herbs! Yes, not dried, packaged herbs but fresh herbs that can grow right on kitchen sill. They have parsley, thyme, lemon basil, basil and curry leaf that you can use in your food, potted in lovely handmade pots procured from Khurja.
