Ask Sprout: What is a plant subscription box?
IMG_1874 copy.jpg

I know nothing! What is a plant subscription box?

Simply, a plant subscription box is a service by Sprout where you get a different plant delivered through the post straight to your door each month for 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. 

What is in the subscription box?

A houseplant,  care instructions and some recyclable packaging.

Is postage included?

Yes!

When are plant subscriptions posted?

Plant subscriptions are posted out during the FIRST WEEK of every month. This means if you buy on February 12th, you'll receive your first plant during the first week of March.

Can I pause my subscription at any time?

Yes! Please get in touch with us to arrange pausing your plant subscription.

What if I move house?

No problem, just let us know with plenty of lead time and we'll change your address.

Can I choose my plants?

Unfortunately, no. Due to demand, we order our subscription plants weeks ahead.

What kind of plants are included in the subscription.

We try to keep it interesting so we choose a wide variety of plants. Previous plants have included: peace lily, earth star, fittonia, begonia, parlour palm, boston fern and string of hearts.

Anything else I should know?

Plants don't like being cooped up in the postal depot, so please leave instructions for your friendly postman to leave with a neighbour, consierge or a nominated safe place.

Grows in similar conditions to its cousin, the Monstera Deliciosa, and will reward you with fast growing foliage.
