    My first order with Team HP

    This was my first order with Houseplant and I was so happy with how smoothly everything went! My plants were wrapped beautifully and I appreciated how all the packaging was recyclable and could be sorted with ease. My plants were well protected and are now bathing in what's left of the autumn sun, thanks guys :)

    Pot delivered was not the one ordered & not even similar. It was round instead of square, patterned instead of plain & a different shade. I now have the hassle of trying to return it and finding another birthday gift for the intended recipient

    Excellent plants!

    It was so easy to find exactly which plants would work for us, although there was such a wealth of choice. They all arrived quickly and in beautiful condition, I'd definitely buy from Houseplants again.

    All of the plants were wrapped with care and attention. Even the rescue box I ordered had good quality plants that I am sure I can coax into glory! It came quickly too. All the plants were in decent sized pots so I won’t have to immediately repot which is refreshing.
