Tell us your story! What inspired you to launch your box?

We first started as an online plant store that sold many varieties of potted plants and air plants. As we expanded, we discovered a demand for live herbs that people could use around the house for adding flavor to dishes and much more. By offering herbs with our monthly subscription, our customers are able to discover new herbs and how they can be used in everyday life.

What are you hoping to accomplish through this subscription box?

Our mission is simple: connecting people back to nature. Currently, places are getting urbanized at a rapid rate, and for those who live in metropolitan areas, it's very hard to see green, but it's very important for one’s mental wellbeing and physical wellbeing to be around live plants. Herbs are an easy way for anyone to add a bit of life to their home.

We agree! So what does success look like to you?

Success for us is measured in the joy these herbs bring to our customers. We love hearing from our subscribers about the unique ways they use their herbs and how happy they are to discover new ones each month.

Lastly, why is your box unique? What do you offer that you feel the world should know?

We are one of a few subscription boxes that will deliver a live plant to your home. Through many trials and errors, we have perfected a method of getting plants delivered all around the country in a healthy condition. We bring nature right to your doorstep.
