For increasing numbers of us, home is where the urban jungle is. From leafy palms to symmetrical succulents, we’re filling our shelves (and Instagram feeds) with gorgeous pots of greenery, and the trend shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.
Still got some space to fill, or want to start your collection from scratch? Here’s our pick of the best plant subscription services on offer…
Geo-Fleur, who operate out of a studio in East London, promise an ‘unusual and beautiful plant’ to subscribers of their Plant Post Club every month – and they don’t disappoint. Not only this, but your new leafy friend will come accompanied by a ceramic handmade pot, or equivalent accessory, and clear, detailed instructions of how to keep it alive – perfect if you’re new to plant parenthood.
How much does it cost? £24 for one month, £65 for three months, £130 for six months, £250 for a year.
BloomBox takes a different approach by offering their plant subscription on a three-monthly basis, rather than every month, but their picks are still wow-factor plants that’ll brighten up even the blandest of spaces. Again, a ceramic pot is included – and if you prefer to do your gardening in the great outdoors, they offer a similar (slightly more expensive) outdoor plant subscription set-up too.
How much does it cost? £35 quarterly, £126 yearly.
Sprout offers a range of stunning stems – in the past, subscribers have sent plants as diverse as peace lilies, fittonias and strings of hearts. Oh, and if you’re looking for a plant-based gift with a difference? Check out their coffee and plant subscription service, which includes a beautiful bloom and a 250g bag of Dark Arts Coffee. Bliss!
How much does it cost? £45 for three months, £75 for six months, £115 for nine months, £145 for a year.
