There’s no denying the calming power of plants. Plenty of us have a renewed interest in gardening right now (like actress Catherine Zeta-Jones) — but what if you just want to bring a little greenery into your home without having to tend to a full plot of flowers, vegetables and herbs? Here are the top 10 plant delivery brands that will send flora straight to your doorstep.
Leaf & Clay
Succulents are the name of the game at Leaf & Clay. You can order them individually, in a variety pack or as part of a subscription. If you aren’t a succulent aficionado, you likely will be amazed at the hundreds of options available. That’s why it’s helpful you can shop by size, color, light requirements and the like. The plants are carefully shipped bare root — meaning they’re naked and unpotted — so you’ll want to have high-quality soil and containers at the ready or opt for some Leaf & Clay planters as part of your purchase.
The Bouqs Co.
Yes, most people know the Bouqs Co. for its farmer-sourced, artisan-crafted floral arrangements, but the brand rooted in responsibility also offers plenty of plants. The modern, eco-friendly #PlantsFam line includes succulents, air plants and other ornamental greenery. You can even learn about the farmers behind the flora. Like the company’s famed flowers, houseplants can be shipped nationwide. Want to brighten up your home on a regular basis? Opt for the flexible monthly flower subscription.
The team at Horti doesn’t want to just sell you a plant — they want to sell you on planting. Hence the focus on curation (meaning only well-researched hardy plants are on offer), connection (between you and your new houseplant) and care (following detailed instructions for your specific specimen). There’s even a subscription plan that’s designed to bolster your confidence in plant care. Not to be overlooked is Horti’s Plant Kindness program, in which you can gift a plant to a stranger as well as nominate someone in need of a little pick-me-up as a possible recipient.
Lula’s Garden out of Los Angeles is all about the succulent love with a focus on ready-to-display gardens. The eco-friendly, self-sustaining gift box each hand-picked and -planted garden arrives in doubles as a planter, making it perfect for sending a little something special to loved ones you’ve been missing. Plus the company supports organizations that help provide access to safe water. A gift that does good? Yes, please.
This Detroit-based company is the result of five generations of greenhouse growers and floral industry innovators, with the plants that arrive at your doorstep shipping straight from Bloomscape’s greenhouse. There’s a variety of shapes, sizes and colors from which to choose as well as a range of accessories like tools and lights. Your purchase arrives at your door “living room ready,” meaning already planted in a sustainable Ecopot with matching saucer. Just unpack your goodies, find them an appropriate home in your home and enjoy. Bonus: The company offers real-time support via Tweet, chat or email in case you’re struggling as a plant parent.
Léon & George
Headquartered in San Francisco with additional bases in Paris and Los Angeles, Léon & George offers premium potted and styled plants that are responsibly sourced. The brand’s name is a playful ode to the cofounders’ pets: Léon, the mischievous tabby cat, and George, the easily excitable parrot. And for every plant sold — from a colorful calathea medallion to a larger-than-life fiddle leaf fig bush — the company supports reforestation, policy reform, and fair and accurate journalism initiatives.
This Portland, Oregon, nursery was founded on the belief that a journey with plants should be accessible to all. And who can argue with that? While the flagship brick-and-mortar store is a conservatory-style oasis to experience, the brand’s website lets you shop from the comfort of your own home. From potted specimen plants to living works of art, the brand’s carefully selected greenery (not to mention striking planters and accessories) is sure to be a bright spot in your home.
In need of your daily dose of greenery? The Sill has you covered. The brains behind the brand recognize that plants elevate our space, our mood and our creativity but realize that not everyone has a green thumb. Which is why the Sill offers both live and faux flora. The company got its start online then added shops in California and New York. Every purchase comes with a guide to Plant Parenthood, ensuring the care experience is easy peasy.
House Plant Shop
This SoCal company was founded by a group of childhood friends who ended up being roommates post-college. They wanted to fill their abode with flora but couldn’t find a good online resource — so they created House Plant Shop. The brand taps area plant farmers to provide its wide selection of air and aquatic plants, cacti and succulents, and indoor tropicals. It also offers plenty of hip accessories, from planters to shears to even potting soil.
Although Farmgirl’s fans go gaga over the brand’s telltale burlap-wrapped bouquets, this San Francisco–based shop also offers houseplants. The live plant lineup is ever-evolving, with the current featured flora being bed head, an echeveria plant with tousled tresses — not unlike the ones many of us are sporting as of late. But this needn’t be an either/or situation. Why not beautify your home with a houseplant and a floral arrangement from Farmgirl Flowers? Great decision.
