Disclosure: This complimentary box was received for review purposes. All opinions are my own, and no compensation was received.
My Garden Box ships mid-month via UPS. Boxes don’t require a signature for delivery, but they are delivered during the week, and they recommend opening it as soon as you receive it.
I like to live on the edge and decided to wait a day to see what would happen if you can’t get to your box immediately. In theory, it’s a great idea to open your box as soon as it arrives, but I know that’s not always possible.
Much to my surprise, the box had a “UniHeat” pack in it to help keep the plants alive and warm during these chilly winter months. I wondered why the bottom of the box felt so warm! I suspect that they use cold packs in the summer, so plants don’t wilt.
So what happened because I waited a day to open this box and get gardening? Absolutely nothing. The plants were in perfect condition!
The box includes a welcome letter and instructions on how to care for your plants. I totally need these instructions! I can’t even tell you the last time we had a houseplant in here.
The box included two planters (*), two Dieffenbachia Star Bright plants, soil, fertilizer and two wormie water sensors.
*One of my planters arrived broken. Since it was a review box and I knew I could do the review just fine without the second planter, I did NOT contact them for a replacement. The planters matched and were securely packaged. I think I got “lucky” and got a broken one!
All I had to do on my end was pot the plant, add water and stick wormie in.
Isn’t he the cutest little thing? I had no idea there was such a thing. He gets dark when soil is wet and gets light when soil is dry. So smart.
This *might* sound silly, but I love having a houseplant. It’s so gray and gloomy outside that seeing a bright green plant on my windowsill really boosts my day. The plants work out to about $21/each, and that includes the ceramic planter, the plant itself, the soil and
The plants work out to about $21/each and that includes the ceramic planter, the plant itself, the soil and wormie and I felt that was very fair. I do wish the information card gave details about the specific plants include in each month’s box (where do they grow, what their traits / history are, etc.), but maybe that will change down the road.
