    Nope :)

    Like I said, I am going to look into getting some plant life :)

    Plants are great, very calming, and they remove carbon dioxide and add oxygen, increasing feelings of well-being (and productivity). With 500 you could get some really nice specimens. Or a reasonable starter hydroponic weed setup.

    You'll need to put together a committee or something for the ongoing care of the plants, of course.

    I'm not a fan of house/office plants. Don't expect me to water them.

    Get big ones, the fewer there are, the less you'd have to water them. Also you can let the cleaners take care of that. Have a nose around homebase or something.

    These guys will care for your plants for you, for free and give you a free trial - might be initially pricey though.

    A tree would be cool though.

    edit: Not sure if they work in York though

    These guys are in York and have some good info on their website about what to consider. I'm sure there are many others on Google though.

    You could just get some plants if there is anyone in your office who knows about what would thrive where and how to care for them, but if they do free quotes you might as well find out how much it costs to deal with professionals.

    I want plants in my office now :(

    Only if you over-water some plants. Or something.

    At least you can fuck their chuffs, I've heard they're pretty tight.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    If you don't know, how can you expect to prevent it? You think everything's fine, but next thing you know there's a gnat or whatever in your coffee. Then you'll need to take another free cup of coffee and use warm water to wash out your cup - because some gnat or whatever remnants might still be stuck on the side.

    The costs for these plants just keeps mounting.

    I'm seeing too much wasted space in that picture.
