Q: Are these indoor plants? Asked by Morgan K., December 2019
Thanks for the question, Morgan! You’ll receive a variety of plants, from tender perennials to succulents that like being inside during the cooler months but can be both indoor or outdoor plants in warmer areas. You may occasionally receive hardier plants that will thrive both indoors and out throughout all seasons.
Q: Do each Garden Box come with a pot or some sort of plant holder or do I need to buy them?Asked by Jen, December 2019
Hi Jen, thanks for the question! Each My Garden Box comes with a plant, as well as a container, and everything you need for growing success. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions and we’ll be happy to help!
Oh my gosh, the ingenuity and attention to detail with every GardenBox is just amazing! Loving every monthly shipment, to the door, intact with living plants and a wide assortment of containers and accessories. I highly recommend a subscription to all the plant lovers out there!
Loved my first box! The 3 plants were really cool and I love love LOVE the smell of moss! I’d never tried out this display technique so it really added some nice changes to my usual plant display.
Also, everything arrived in perfect condition and I love that they included everything I’d need... including scissors!
I know nothing about plants, but I knew I wanted some to spruce up my office. Instead of picking up a few random plants at the store, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and sign up for My Garden Box: I get a new plant for my office and the added fun of a subscription box! I've gotten 4 plants now and I am in love. They brighten up my room and they're thriving in their new environment. And I'm learning about the plants at the same time! Love everything about this box. (Just two of the plants shown)
My box came yesterday! Everything arrived safely and intact. I had so much fun following the instructions and putting everything together. So cute!! I can't wait to get my next box!!
This is one of the best purchases I have ever made. I’ve received two boxes so far and they are bringing me so much joy! I love all the little details and the interesting ways of displaying the plant. Each box is well thought out and nicely packed, it really makes you feel like you’re opening a present. The effort it takes to assemble is very minimal, but so much fun to do. I’ve already bought gift subscriptions for my dad and my best friend!
This was a nice gift from my spouse. The container design was unique and the directions were easy to follow. The plants were more “common” houseplants, but are easy to care for and maintain.
Any chance of receiving a more exotic type of plant?

Although Fed Ex delayed the delivery of my box for no apparent reason, when I received the box, I was delighted. The self-watering pot was gorgeous, sturdy, and accents the plant beautifully. There was plenty of soil. A nice stake and slate tag were included (although the soapstone chalk was missing.). A moisture indicator was included and the very ordinary Philodendron was in excellent condition. This is a plant I'm quite familiar with so it should do quite well. Very pleased with my first box.
Thanks for sharing your experience, Kathy! We’re really glad to hear that you enjoyed your first collection. We have reached out via email about shipping your soapstone chalk replacement. Happy Gardening!
Love the attention to every little detail. All you need and more is provided and is of amazing quality. A great way to start a weekend after a stressful work week. You'll find your smiling, because you have created something beautiful and living. I am so glad I purchased this.
My daughter had signed me up for My Garden Box as a Christmas gift. I was a little apprehensive about what garden item would show up in cold January in the northeast. I was so very happy to receive a tidy box of very well packed items for the "ship in a bottle" package. There was everything I needed to create a beautiful planter, so well packed and wonderfully protected, even a warming pack to keep the plants warm! It was easy to assemble and is gorgeous. I have it on my desk at work and get compliments on it every day. I can't wait for next month!
The joy of create your own message is a bottle was a genius idea. the supplies were plentiful and easy to work with. Although one was the plants was too large for the arrangement I used it . I will replaced it with a more appropriate size soon.
