Buying flowers is a wonderful gesture and while we love flowers at Happy Houseplants we prefer to keep them on the plant and see them as an annual surprise as the plant grows and matures over many years.
At Happy Houseplants we also decided not to jump on the plant subscription model; we want to sell you plants that will grow and thrive in your home for a long time.
We strive hard to run a sustainable and ethical business designed to spread some plant love to everyone. Our hope is people are inspired and curious to learn more about plants and the animals that rely on the space they create and become aware of the damage and pressure our choices in life put on our environment.
While flowers are beautiful once cut from the parent plant they fade away fast. The carbon cost is enormous and the benefits fleeting.
If you really want to show someone you love them or freshen up a room or office we recommend choosing to buy a plant that, with a little bit of care, will give you years of pleasure. And if you ever get bored or fancy a change, there is much joy to be gained from swapping plants or cuttings with friends.
