    Not bad

    Overall not bad but not a smooth first time purchase. The plants arrived upside-down, and separately least three of the plants in the 'Rescue me' box were v sadly beyond saving. One died immediately on the day of arrival

    LOVE THIS WEBSITE

    All 3 of my house plants arrived in absolute PERFECT condition. All absolutely beautiful. What I love the most is that the website was amazing for you to be able to choose either plants that needed more shade or direct sunlight. Was easy to navigate your way around the website. Will definitely be ordering my future house plants again.

    Addicted to houseplants

    I have a problem. I’ve recently become obsessed with buying house plants and my husband purchased some from here for me as a surprise. I then went on to purchase even more for myself and I now have no more room and already planning which plants to buy next! I love them and I’m very happy with what we have bought. They arrived very well packaged and I’m so pleased it’s so easy to buy plants that aren’t at my local garden centres. Next stop plantaholics anonymous haha

    After spending almost an hour looking at and reading through all the different plants on the website, I finally decided on three fairly easy to care for plants. The website was easy to navigate with simple, yet clear instructions. Which is great for those us of who are novices. On arrival the plants were very carefully packaged and were beautiful. I would have given 5 stars had it not been for the Aloe Vera plant having already had a large section chopped off (photos will be added to this review). Even so, I would recommend this company to others and will use them again.
