BloomBox’s green picks are wow-factor plants that’ll brighten up even the blandest of spaces. There are three different levels of subscription to choose from – Classic will get you a high-quality plant delivered every month; Classic Plus will deliver you one large statement plant; and Special secures you a small batch, hard-to-find plant from boutique growers. Even better, all subscriptions include a ceramic pot for your new plant friends to live in.
How much does it cost? From £35 a month/pay as you go.
Canopy Plants offer a range of subscriptions to suit all budgets – the Classic is £15 a go (or £30 with a ceramic pot) and can be on a monthly, bimonthly or quarterly frequency. Alternatively, the Shoestring subscriptions are suitable for plant lovers on a tight budget and again, chose to receive a delivery every 1, 2 or 3 months.
How much does it cost? Classic: £15 (£30 with pot); Shoestring: £10.
At Leaf Envy, there are lots of ways to make your subscription personal to you, for example by choosing to receive either one surprise plant (sans pot) or a plant and a pot each delivery; decide whether you want a new plant baby every 1, 2 or 3 months; and then choose the subscription length that’s right for you. Those who like to think sustainably will be glad to hear that Leaf Envy deliveries come in recyclable packaging and they plant a tree for every 10 orders.
How much does it cost? Plant only: £20; plant and pot: £35.

👋 Hi new plant parents 👋 So your homes are bursting with lovely new plant gifts you received at Christmas… It’s now mid January and you’re nailing all those new year plans (🏃♀️✅ 🧘✅🍾❌🥩❌🥚❌🧀❌) So here are some tips to help keep your plants thriving over the winter months. 🌡 make sure your plants are no closer then 1 metre from a heat source, radiator or fire…. 💨 they won’t like drafty spots either so if your windowsills are cold then think again! 💦 not sure how often you should be watering? The finger test is always a winner; dip your finger 2 inches into the soil… It’s a bit like checking if your cake is cooked, if your finger is damp then put the watering can down… if it’s dry or crumbly then go for it! 🚿 so you’ve decided your plant needs watering and you don’t know what too much or too little looks like… pop it on a saucer/plate/tray give it a water from above. Give it 15 mins, tip the excess water away and you’re done (and no root rot from overwatering) 🌴 The plant in the pic is a Bird of Pradise aka Strelitzia. We don’t sell the flowering variety so it’s safe around pets and can deal with both bright and low level light… She’s a beaut and you all seem to think so too… Any other plant Q’s we can help with? 📷 via @homemilk . . . . . . . #bathroomdecor #bathroomgoals #strelitzia #birdofparadise #plantlife #indoorplants #plantlovers #plantlover #plantsplantsplants #plantae #plantlady #foliage #botany #lifearoundplants #livingwithplants #plantingpositivity #pausewithplants #plantparent #selfcare #plantcare

Romeo & Succulent

🌿 GIVEAWAY 🌿 I know these last few weeks, and particularly the last few days, have been tough. Really tough. I don’t talk much about that kind of thing on here as I like it to remain a vibrant yet neutral space for you, my fab followers, plus others to simply enjoy all things botanical & for me to showcase my work. But as 2020 has been a funny ol’ year I figured a pick-me-up might be nice. So here’s your chance to win a smile-inducing 3 month plant subscription for either yourself or a friend. Since I started Romeo & Succulent I have run a fun cacti & succulent monthly subscription which includes an unusual plant from the cactus/succulent family, a cool pot for it to live in & a small info leaflet on how to care for your new addition. This is normally £20 per month (including postage), and I’m giving away a 3-month subscription to ANYONE who can simply write a positive & uplifting message on this post. The winner will have a plant posted to them for the next 3 months, and will also have their message displayed loud & clear on my Instagram. Here are the rules; 1) You, or the person you’d like the subscription to go to, must live in the UK to enter so I can post the plant 2) You need to write a unique, happy, positive, uplifting quote or statement on this post 3) Give me a follow then tag a friend, or friends, to do the same 🌿 The cut off is 6pm Friday 12th June & the winner will be chosen at random that evening. Good luck! . . . #giveaway #lockdown2020 #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsplantsplants #cacticacti #succulove #plantsubscription #norwich #norfolk #eastanglia #plantaddict #plantgang #botanicalpickmeup #allthingsbotanical #plantgiveaway #iloveplants #plantlady #keepgoing #remainpositive #succuholic #cactusaddict #botanicaldaydreams #sendthistoyourbestfriend #houseplants #houseplantsuk #indoorplants

#repost @plantasmagorie ・・・ 💚 Can we PLEASE talk about lipstick plants? I bought this one because it was cheap and I didn't feel ridiculously excited about it BUT I wanted a nice and bulky hanging plant. Now I'm totally in love and this beauty is blooming like crazy, even though I believe the light is not good enough here. I'm totally a foliage person but that red… 🤤 . 🌿 Aeschynanthus Radicans . 🛒 @houseofkojo ________________________________ #plantmom #houseplantclub #houseplants #urbanjungle #houseplantlove #houseplantcommunity #plantsmakepeoplehappy #houseplantsofinstagram #plantlove #indoorjungle #houseplanthome #plantaddict #jungalowstyle #plantgang #plantobsessed #plantparentcommunity #apartmentjungle #houseplantjournal #plantlover #instaplant #urbanjunglebloggers #houseplantplantclub #plantshelfie #plantcollection #plants #apartmentplants #lipstickplant #aeschynanthus #aeschynanthusradicans
