How to unpack your plants

We send out your plants in cardboard boxes we custom make to fit your order. This takes a bit of time, a lot of cardboard, sellotape, plastic and string. The cardboard and plastic is recycled, the sellotape isn't. The string is natural sisal twine, ideal for tying up plants.

The cardboard makes a great weed barrier around plants if you put some mulch over it to hold it down (pull the sellotape off first).

To unwrap your plants, cut the string and the outer layer of cardboard will slide up off the inner box that holds the plants.
