Forget about doggie daycare—this tops it. A hotel that will take your houseplants and keep them alive while you travel. For some inept gardeners, it might even be a lifesaver...for the plants.
Patch, a British online plant and garden supply company, has opened the Patch Plant Hotel in London's Battersea area, and has 100 'rooms' that can be booked for your green friends.
While you're gone, the company promises, your plants will get an expert check-up, hydration spa treatments and even, if needed, a little pruning. At least for now, the hotel is free of charge—but we all know what happens eventually to that kind of deal!
