We love being outdoors. I can’t think of anything better than getting home after a long day at work and popping out into the garden for a bit of relaxation. It’s the perfect place to unwind on summer days as Little Button potters about playing gardening. The only problem is that our London garden has become a bit neglected. We just don’t have the time to go searching for plants to fill it anymore. Well, problem solved at last! Because BloomBox Club have got it covered for all us busy parents. Hooraa!
It’s a super cool plant subscription service which brings you beautiful blooms right to your front door each quarter. I know right! What a fab idea. Who wants to spend precious time traipsing round the garden centre when you could be out and about visiting the sights, on the beach or just kicking back in your own garden! Thank you BloomBox Club.
We couldn’t wait to give BloomBox Club a try. Especially as we are just on the verge of giving our little London garden a makeover. Although our garden isn’t huge, we have quite big flower beds (waiting to be filled) so we opted to try out the large outdoor plants box subscription. There are plenty of different options to suit your needs if you have a smaller space, and even an indoor plants box, which looks very impressive. Here’s how we got on.
Everyone loves getting a surprise in the post, don’t they? From an unexpected letter to a cake in a tin. But what about a delivery of plants! Now that’s what I call exciting. You wouldn’t believe how long this has entertained Little Button for. #WinWin.
It can be a bit tricky finding good quality plants. Ones that have been sat outside in their pots for a long time can be a bit dry, burnt and wilted. There’s an element of fun bringing a plant back to life, but, when you buy them for the garden, you do expect them to be healthy, don’t you. BloomBox Club delivers top quality, healthy plants that arrive ready to be planted. Your little one will be thrilled to be able to get started right away.
Ever got home with a plant and wondered… what do I do with THIS! Me too! Most of us don’t have time to research into how to care for plants. But the beauty of BloomBox Club is that they do all the hard work for you. Every plant you receive will come with a very handy quick glance guide like this. Great isn’t it. And, you can get a little bit of help from Mr Plant Geek over on the BloomBox Club blog. Don’t mind if I do…
As busy working parents we don’t have lots of time on our hands. We tend to shop online and indulge in subscription services as ongoing treats. It helps save time for the important things, like spending quality time together as a family. Having tried out this subscription, I can say with certainty that it saved us buckets of time. And, not only did it keep the whole family entertained, but it also got us working together (planting and watering) and thinking more about how we want to enjoy our garden.
“Flowers feed the soul and green space lets it breathe”. There’s something so magical about watching something grow and flourish. It’s good for us. Long after receiving these sweet smelling treats from BloomBox Club, we are still enjoying them every day.
