Plant Gifts to send in Sympathy or in Remembrance of a special person

Plants are a lovely way to comemorate a special person or to send in place of cut flowers for a funeral.

Fruit trees and hardy garden plants can be a beautiful reminder of a special person or perhaps you just want to send the family something colourful to cheer them up at a difficult time.

Either way all our cards are blank for your special message and you can choose the delivery date and add instructions about where to leave the parcel if the recipient is out or won't want to be disturbed.

What are sympathy plants and who are sympathy plants for?

Sympathy plants are beautiful gifts for the recently bereaved, given to let them know that you’re thinking of them at what is bound to be a difficult time. They can bring some brightness and comfort, lasting much longer than bunches of cut flowers.

What is the difference between remembrance plants, sympathy plants and bereavement plants?

Sympathy and bereavement plants are generally sent shortly after someone has suffered a loss, whereas remembrance plants can be given or planted in the honour of someone who has passed away. Remembrance plants are essentially memorial plants, and a touchstone for the future, thriving and growing in the memory of a loved one, and providing beauty long after their passing.

Why choose sympathy plant gifts?

Grief is a journey, and our sympathy plant gifts offer a source of solace for the bereaved. Unlike traditional sympathy gifts that may fade with time, a living plant serves as a symbol of life and growth, reflecting the ongoing memory of the person who has passed away.

Bereavement gifts for loved ones

Plants are a much more thoughtful gift than flowers for bereavements. They can bring a bit of cheer and comfort during a difficult time and are perfect as a lasting reminder of your affection and thoughts.

We understand the importance of timely delivery during such sensitive times. Rest assured, your sympathy plant gift will be delivered promptly and with utmost care. Each plant is also beautifully presented, ensuring that your gift arrives in a way that's fitting for the occasion. The unwrapping experience itself is designed to bring a sense of comfort and warmth.

Perfect gifts for honouring and remembering

In a time of sorrow, express your condolences through the gift of a plant that says more than words can. These sympathy plant gifts become lasting tributes, growing alongside memories and helping to honour and remember those who have passed.

Remembrance plant gifts

Edible remembrance plant gifts

Planting a remembrance plant that bears fruit is a perfect cyclical way to remember a loved one each year; an olive tree is a beautiful example of an edible plant that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Flowering remembrance plant gifts

Flowering remembrance plant gifts provide a pop of colour when it’s need most, making you smile even when the loss of the person it was planted for is still painful. A lilac bush or a rose, for example, put on fantastic colourful displays each year, as well as a glorious fragrance; what better way for someone’s memory to live on?

Rosemary for remembrance

Rosemary plants have long been associated with remembrance and make a lovely symbolic gift highlighting that our loved ones are never forgotten. Our potted Rosemary bushes are available most of the year and are a great gift to plant in the garden or even at a graveside to remember a loved one.
