PLANT RESCUE BOXES

STOCKISTS

Those of us who buy plants like to think of our hobby as being ‘green’, but plant production has a large environmental footprint, made even greater by our unwillingness to accept anything but absolute perfection. Plants considered unsuitable for sale because of an 'imperfection' are thrown away in their millions. Most of us agree that throwing away vegetables because they’re wonky shouldn’t be an acceptable practice, and yet plants are being discarded on a massive scale for the same reason. It's this senseless waste that the Plant Rescue Box aims to address. 

You can give plants that would be destined for the bin a second chance by buying a plant rescue box from the retailers below. The plants are heavily discounted to reflect their condition, and are non-refundable, but with proper care many will thrive.

 

How to order a Rescue Box - click on any of the logos below which will take you to the individual retailer's website.

If there is a search function on the website type in 'rescue' to view available boxes. If there isn't a search function just scroll through the list of products until you come across Plant Rescue Boxes.
