Carrie Bickmore has just shared the ultimate garden hack

Turns our Carrie Bickmore's thumb may be a little more brown than green...

The addition of a simple houseplant can take a room from, meh to WOW in seconds but sadly, the upkeep is a little like the washing up.

Some people jump on the washing up after every meal and others tend to leave it until the saucepan builds a grimy crust so thick that it’s better just to buy a whole new saucepan.

Most of us spend more time buying new plants than we do looking after the old ones, and while there may be plants out there that could survive even the most brutal ‘brown thumb’, they’re hard to find.

Never fear! The Project’s Carrie Bickmore has just shared a game changing gardening hack on her Instagram account.

The Australian Presenter posted the above picture on Instagram with the caption:

“Lifehack: When you can’t grow real indoor plants…buy a plastic plant and put real soil in the pot and everyone will think it’s real!”

“Finally I have lush green plants in my house 😜”

Well that’s a bit cheeky Carrie…. AND WE LOVE IT!

There’s no better time to get some ‘spring spirit’ into your home. We’ve selected a few indoor plants we think Carrie would approve and shared them below.

We won’t tell if you don’t.
