🪴 Locally Sourced

It's not local when garden center trucks travel 1,500-3,000 miles on average to deliver your plants from far away brokers. We aim to keep our greenhouses under 150 miles* (often much less), away from the growers which results in reduced pollution, plant waste and damages, and lower the amount of time the plant is in transit.

👩🏼‍🌾 Supporting local farmers

Our farmers earn double through working with us compared to when selling to traditional large box retailers! We accomplish this by sourcing locally directly from the farmers, eliminating multiple deliveries, packaging, and subscription fees. 

  • Step 1

    We use wood fiber to cover our soil to help prevent soil spillage.

  • Step 2

    The wood fiber is placed over the soil, right under the foliage. 

  • Step 3

    We then use a plastic bag to cover the planter and wood fiber portion of the plant. 

  • Step 4

    Next we secure it tightly with a zip-tie.

  • Step 5

    We then place the houseplant in a paper bag and secure it safely with a rubber band.
