Detailed Care Guides for some of our most popular plants

All our plant gifts come with detailed care instructions to help you position, water and feed your new plant babies so they will thrive in their new homes.

These individual care guides can be found on our website by going to the specific product page and clicking the tab marked 'Care instructions'. These individual plant care guides will include specific instructions about looking after that plant including advice on how old it is and how long it might be before that size of plant needs repotting.

Alongside these specific care instructions we're also developing a range of more detailed care guides by plant type to help provide more advice for longer term care on some of our most popular plants. We'll be adding to these general care guides below over the coming weeks and months so do let us know if there is a particular plant you'd like to see covered.
