Gotta Have It

Go green! Living interiors are having a moment, so go treat yourself AND be bang on trend with cool Northants 'living gift' brand Martin & Cox.


At Muddy HQ we would love to furnish our world with flowers to a Mrs Dalloway-esque degree but, let’s face it, like all the pretty things, they die too soon, so instead we’ve got pileas, cheese plants (suitable for vegans) and succulents on every available surface.

It’s proven a gazillion times that house plants are good for the soul. They sweeten up the air, improve sleep quality and reduce fatigue and stress (gimme!) and, memo to employers: they increase workplace satisfaction and productivity (N.B. so do doughnuts). You also have to somehow keep them alive which makes you feel more needed and connected.

Need more  convincing? Did you know that houseplants help to raise humidity levels in the home, which can in turn help reduce the transmission of the flu virus. Pass the mister spray, we’re sold.

Super stylish Kettering biz Martin and Cox Living Gifts, whose philosophy is about enduring gifts with a sense of luxury, are spearheaded by founder and all-round lovely human, Jemma Cox, and they’re a breath of fresh air if you struggle to find meaningful gifts that don’t go floppy and die in a week or two.

The feel good factor is the absolute bottom line as far Jemma is concerned, which is why she was determined to deliver luxurious plants that aren’t just a beautiful physical gift, but an uplifting experience.

If you’re on the hunt for a gorgeously packaged Mothers’ Day gift that will have a lasting impact, then look no further. Watch this space for their exclusive new range of pots, launching soon.
