"Plants shouldn’t end up in the bin just because they no longer look ‘perfect’. They deserve our love and care, for without them none of us would exist. All too often houseplants are treated as disposable items, like a wilted bunch of flowers but they are alive and do so much for us, the least we can do is try our best to help them recover"
The Plantrescuer rescue box is filled with indoor plants that have imperfections or that simply didn’t sell quick enough. Plants that no longer meet our highest quality standards or that have simply been on the shelves for too long. Plants like this are usually thrown away but we want to change the industry and give them a second chance!
What's in the box?
The contents of the box will vary all the time, if you have bought one before we can not guarantee you will get 4 different plants every time - we rescue any plants that need it.
How many plants does the Box contain?
The number of plants varies between 2 and 4 plants in total, sometimes it may be more.
My Plants have brown, torn or yellow leaves, can I get a refund?
All the plants sold will be imperfect but with the right care will grow - so sorry, no refunds will be given. The price reflects the condition of the plants.
Who should buy this box?
The rescue box is for more experienced plant keepers, those with the patience and understanding to rescue plants. However, everyone has to start somewhere so this is a nice way to learn how to rescue plants. Due to shipping costs we can only send 1 box per customer.
From a young age Sarah was brought up to appreciate nature, learning about the outdoors from her grandfather, who worked as a groundsman on a Scottish estate. After studying art in Edinburgh, she moved to London and became a freelance picture editor for The Sunday Times, Guardian, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.
In 2015, Sarah's love for nurturing living things evolved to include houseplants. Having adopted some non-flowering orchids that had been dumped by a local store, a new-found passion for rescuing ailing and abandoned plants took hold. As @theplantrescuer on Instagram she has helped thousands of people understand how to make their plants happy and what to do if something goes wrong. Her broadcast and print appearances range from BBC Gardeners' World to The Times.
She lives in Hertfordshire with her husband, daughter, cats, dog and hundreds of rescue plants, which she somehow still manages to sneak into their modest semi-detached house.
