East Croydon Cool | Project Seven: Indoor Plant competition with Knttd
Blog by East Croydon Cool 12/11/2020
Welcome to Lockdown 2! We’ve picked up where we left off and have a new competition to help keep Croydon residents motivated during this latest incarceration!
Recent years have seen a huge trend for indoor plants and an increased number of articles about their positive impact on mental health. From Vice and Metro to Psychology Today and Stylist, EVERYONE is raving about greenery and it’s associated benefits.
It’s a fact that Cronx resident, Carly, knows all too well. Having started her business (Knttd) in April whilst taking care of a toddler and being stuck indoors 24/7, she was full of emotions & at times pretty overwhelmed. But with Carly’s business revolving around plants, Lockdown gave her the opportunity to grow her plant collection whilst taking her mind off the pandemic.
As the RHS explains: “As well as looking good, houseplants support human health in homes, offices, school and hospitals. Research suggests that the greatest benefits of indoor plants are through wellbeing and productivity improvement.”
Something we could probably all do some help with!
So as we find ourselves in the midst of another Lockdown we have partnered up with Carly and Knttd to encourage you to embrace indoor planting and help spread the word about how your plant babies are helping you through this period.
Show us your urban jungle (or your start of one!) and tell us what you love about your greenery for the chance to win a new home (for your plant 😉). Share a photo on Instagram of your plants using #LockdownPlanter and tag in @Knttd_london to WIN a beautiful knitted planter!

This photo competition closes at midnight on Thursday 26th November…giving you 2 weeks to get your plants photo ready for their close up!
The winner will be announced on Friday 27th November. UK residents only. Plants not included. This giveaway is not endorsed by Instagram.
