Get techie this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day isn’t all about flowers and chocolate. While one of these die and the other makes you fat, tech gifts are a much more exciting present to give your loved one. (Or yourself, from your cat).

If your partner loves flowers, give them the gift of a beautiful garden this Valentine’s Day! 

The Parrot Flower Power is the first smart wireless sensor designed to help you take care of your plants. This gadget monitors the four areas crucial to plant growth: soil moisture, fertiliser, ambient temperature and light intensity. It will then let you know exactly what they need by sending helpful notifications to your smartphone or tablet though a dedicated app..
