Coronavirus has done huge damage to the U.K. garden industry.

Plant Pack launched to salvage plants that were going to waste, supporting growers and bringing mood-boosting plants to Londoners in isolation. We rescued thousands of plants and supported a number of growers across the U.K. during lockdown, and learned a huge amount in the process.
As lockdown eases, you- our customers- told us that you'd like to keep getting high-quality, convenient plant deliveries direct to your door. We're excited about the future of Plant Pack, and can't wait to grow, alongside our grower partners and charity partner, Thrive.
