Between 3-5 random and/or rare plants that are all in need of some TLC. A great way of saving plants if you fancy a project and/or are green-fingered! Please note that we accept no returns on these.

This is in collaboration with Sarah Gerrard Jones who is a pioneer of The Plant Rescue Box initiative and her ethos is as below:

‘Plant production is a multi-billion-pound industry and with it comes all the environmental costs associated with mass production: energy and water consumption, peat consumption, chemical use, emissions from air and freight travel, not to mention the amount of non-biodegradable plastic used. 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 are green, but plant production is not.

It’s troubling to think about the harm that growing plants on a massive scale have on the environment - fossil fuel consumption, neonicotinoid pesticides, water and peat consumption - all of which are wasted when a plant is discarded. 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 lead by example and take a stand against this unacceptable practice by selling Plant Rescue Boxes. Not only does this stop the needless discarding of plants, but it also allows you to recoup lost earnings, shows that you are part of a movement committed to reducing waste, improves your eco credentials, and allows those on a limited budget to access plants that are normally unaffordable.’
