Safe Shipping for Plants
Like you, we're avid online shoppers and all manner of plant packaging concoctions have arrived on our own doorstep. We decided to raise the bar for your online plant purchase.
Our custom made protective plant cartons keep the foliage safe and the roots securely at the bottom of the box in their soil and nursery pot. Recycled, recyclable, simple, effective... nice!
Learn everything about our plant packaging & couriers below.
We're here to help you and understand everyone wants to be treated reasonably and fairly so please get in contact if you have any queries. Buying natural, fragile, perishable products like plants is not as straightforward as ordering a tee shirt so we've outlined all of the key information here so you can order with confidence.
Home Parcel Delivery Zone - Do you have one?
You will need a safe, sheltered, warm place to have your parcel delivered to because all parcels are sent on a non-signature courier service. This may exclude some apartment buildings, houses or workplaces.
Use the notes section at the checkout to make safe delivery easy on the courier as we will add this to the delivery label.
