Fun flowers from Bloom Box Club…
You really don’t need to be a keen gardener to enjoy the sight of flowers but of course, it really helps to be if that’s what you want to be greeted with when you head out into the garden. Yet in the busy modern world, it’s so hard to find time to relax in your garden, never mind tend to it. Many only have a very small outdoor space, or none at all and more and more are renting. All these things can feel like barriers to adding some beautiful greenery into your home and yet they don’t have to be.
Bloom Box Club offers a lovely quarterly plant delivery service which has taken the legwork out of selecting the best flowers for you. Currently, they offer 3 types of subscription, a large box at £79, small box £59 and indoor plants for £35. The boxes are delivered seasonally, well packed and ready to plant as you wish. They are specially selected to give a variety of colour and texture and bloom at different times for year round interest.
Our first box came with 4 plants for the spring season; these were The Oriental Poppy, Californian Lilac, Vials Primrose and Umbrella Bamboo. They all arrived upright in a large box, in perfect condition and the beautiful Oriental Poppy almost instantly burst into full beautiful bloom.
Tending to plants is considered to be good for the soul and is also a great way to teach children a little bit of routine and responsibility. Mine absolutely love watering the plants and learning that they have different likes and dislikes. The plant guides that come included teach them all of these facts and are easily stored together on a silver ring can be hung near the garden door and referred back to as necessary.
As a renter what is really great is that almost all the plants selected will live happily both buried in your soil or a planter. For us, this means lots of large decorative pots which can be moved both around the garden and to a new house if and when we might need to move.
It would be a real treat to have a subscription and would make a great gift for a green-fingered friend, new homeowners and for so many other people and occasions. Even my children would thoroughly look forward to seeing their new plants each season!
We’d love to give one of you, our lovely readers the beautiful gift of an Indoor Plant Box; to enter this giveaway, you just need to fill out the Gleam widget below and agree to your email being subscribed to the Bloom Box newsletter before midnight on 31st July.
